ESOTROPIA

Faking a term like ‘general criminology’,mapping the specific or limited types of criminology, as a variety of logic circuits ,along with making use of two areas of tactics and strategies of criminology, in an aggregating relation to the substrate, on which to conduct and implement the crime, and through virtual simulation or modeling of these two areas, and exploiting common protocols, it is possible to study various models of interconnectivity on one hand, and possible states of short circuits, among open ons.From a functional point of view, the mentioned approach of general criminology, acts prior to cognition itself , or more precisely criminology lies basically behind every single action of cognition.
Eyal wiseman ,the author of ‘The Least Of All Possible evils : “humanitarian violence from Arendt to Gaza” ,with the pretext :” The only one to identify a crime, is the criminal”, in the fourth chapter of his book, discusses Marc Garlasco- civilian protection officer, and structuring the idea of ‘Forensic Architecture’ , and hence studies the tensions and connections between different systems of criminology, and identifies common approaches among them.
“Forensic Architecture, should achieve a method for restoring scenes of violence, in the correlation of architecture, history, and war legislations; as it reflects itself in spatial wrought and built environments. A commission- composed of international forensic experts, studies ruins, in an effort to gain explicit information on how the incident has occurred, and wether or not, it has been in consistency with the laws from an international humanitarian spectrum”
This is the exact act of restoring or technically, modeling-simulating the crime scenes through symptoms, based on the pre-classified approach of general criminology as the aperior of cognition, which can be assumed as the idea of components distribution in cognitive assemblies: politics,dialectics,mathematics, and above all – aesthetics, which plays the key role in our view.
Geo-traumatic ticology( ) , in the aforementioned general criminology, clearly indicates how loudly the machines of both territorization ( territorization, deterritorization’ reterritorization), and coding( coding,decoding,recoding) squeak about, what sort of lubrication they are served with, where they make short circuits, and what their systematic protocols of loops, feedbacks, overflows, and knots look like. In other words, we are dealing with a type of tcologic machnisim of machines. In a different articulation, as general criminology is applied for movements and actions, the ticology of ‘war machines’ and ‘state machines’ are applied for ecology of general criminology, or lets say it is the ecologic state of criminology itself.
Robin Mackay, in his ingenious introduction to the translation of the book ‘The Brain-Eye’, by Eric Alliez, explains this area of criminology in the way Alliez addresses painting, by mapping his notes as following:
” This is how the event of Brain-Eye emerges, as if a hallucinatory stereoscopy, from the ‘overlabour’ of the text: not as a chronological development entered into to the ledger of art history, but as a virtual event or problematic field whose chronically uneven distribution demands a crooked path, a zigzag line, a series of retouchings that each time changes the whole picture; a virtual event that solicits the participation of the viewer-reader in the construction of a tableau which must be seen ‘ from too far away and up too close’ in order to appreciate both the ambitious sweep of its argument and the fine details of its ‘broken touch’ “.
Differentiation between areas of general and limited criminology- for instance in forensic architecture and legal medicine, and this area of general criminology, in the way Alliez adresses modern painting , and between state and war machines, marks itself out in general relationality, and the systems differentiating between paranoic strategies and schizotrategies , or schizoid strategies. Based on what Reza Negarestani suggests on ‘Gerdbadnameh’, it is possible to outline this system of differentiation between these two strategic areas, according to their relation to technical lines in the First phase and in the second phase of the functional-executive figure,based on the ratio between tactical lines ; short circuits between strategies and tactical lines straightening on logistic substrate.

Escalating this stretching state and stretching this escalation, in the Brain-Eye, we are encountering the chronological strategic line of the eye in proportion with logistic field of brain, and more comprehensively, electro-chemical and neurological structures, snd the unnamable line and point junction- prismatic , hybrid and polymorphic, which forma the POV.
Pouya Gholami, in the preface of his book about sci-fi- ‘landscapes,execces,fantasms, in late sci-fi ‘ , explains this transition from eye to brain (terminator to mimic) as follows:
“Since Alpha operates as a single-overal-allien organism of centeral nervous system, thus cage( the protagonist of the movie), causes an automatic submission of a response to the alien nervous system, and in fact enters it. This may be traced back in itself too, since it is its own nervous system that should now face a new brain circuit. Yet, this is also a point of vulnerability for the alien organism: humanism or indeed and extremely human percept. The brain of this alien, which is called Omega, is capable of controlling the time. When the death of an Alpha occurs, Omega resets the day, and therefore the murderer of Alpha ( the protagonist) is forced to start the day over, although with a memory of the previous day, and this is how Omega knows what is going to occur the day after: The enemy that knows about future occurrences is undefeatable , thereafter, the initial issue is altered; we are no longer dealing with and eye, but with a brain circuit”
In a neurological ecology, and in the ecologic character of general criminology, Ticology operates on the murder scene of brain and nervous circuits. The geo-traumatic ticology coverts the Earth to an enduring scene of crime, and due to the fact that , this crime scene is composed of brain circuit boards and neurological networks, fro, the theoretical spectrum of systems and second-order cybernetics- and meanwhile as Nick Land’s ‘accelerationism’ suggests- giving sci-fi, desire, and the market a consideration as a foundation, we meet a new formation of thought-images. Put simply, thought-images are board on the exact same poly-tic-hyper paranoic-cybernetic-schizotrategic-criminological order from general topology of glitches and noises as basic conditions of morphogenesis: There are some certain conclusions to make:1-Thought-images are basically mophologic, and 2- Morphology is the shcizotrategic acceleration in general criminology.
The morphogenesis processes in this tic and short circuit infested electrochemical circuits-this boiling magma cortexes, are the criminal apparatuses for adjustment and control theory of short circuits; and bio-morphic and vitalism are hyper paranoic and hyper law-enforcing-militaristic apparatuses, in the general transmit-ability and contagiousness: A subcategory of infection biology and immunology in general criminology: protocolar adjustment and control over transmit-ability. as Nick Land suggests in ‘Meltdown’:
“Bugs in the system.margulis suggests that nucleated cells are the mutant product of atmospheric oxygenation catastrophe three billion years ago. The eukaryotes are synthetic emergency capsules in which prokaryotes took refuge as mitochondria: biotics became securitized biology. Nucleation concentrates ROM within a command core where -deep in the genomic ICE- DNA format planetary trauma registers primary repression of bacteria.”
In all, whatsoever called ‘alive’ in a paranoid security system of transmit-ability adjustment, and general criminology is a fantastic sci-fi for hunting illegal transmissions,holes, leakages ,expenditures and dissipations; toxic poly-tics and infections, and more overall ,the state of living tissue becoming necrosis, necrophilia, and slimeophilia. Ben woodard begins his book
‘ Slime Dynamics’ as follows:
” Millions of years ago, above a recently hardened earth, gasses in the atmosphere reduced and then were exposed to solar and other forms of energy, allowing the creation of organic compounds such as nucleic and amino acids, which would eventually interact leading to the first forms of life. These globes of swarming proto-life within the primeval oceans “regulated
By principles of physics for self-organizing systems” provided the template for all organic
being and all eventual thought on the planet Earth.”
The living and the dead
Under his command
Were coupled face to face , and hand to hand
Till chok’d with stench, in loath’d embraces tied
The lingering wretches pin’d away and died

As Reza Negarestani discusses in his paper titled: ‘ The Corpse Bride: thinking with Nigerdo,
As a punishment for sin and under the king’s command, the woman is coupled with a corpse of a man, who once suffered from syphilis, which is called ‘Nupta-Contagios, marrying a patient or corpse this punishment can be considered as a parable of a transmit-able and schizotrategic
Chemo-philia; A corpus penalty as abstraction and morphogenesis protocols.
The science of revolution in this area of general criminology is monsterology:
A device for drawing tactical lines and schizotrategies against securitizing militarism of the living matter, and instructions of forming a war machine, a militant tic-graph, and an
Infectious militant chemo-philia. A monster as often stated, is a subject incapable of being classified, since it continues to be an inadequate and unconquered other. It is possible to
Demonstarte a two-dimensional description of a monster, in relation to bodies of science, statistical systems of identification, and personal status registration. Consequently
, two emerging patterns or phases are differentiable, which is to be situated in or between
them: Firstly, a monster in its composite and synthetic form, which lies far beyond knowledge
Structures and name-wise classifications of history and societies. In the discussed phase,
a monster is a radical form of being and a level of the possible, a constant fantasy and discovery. A monster lives in the exteriors of the symbolic memory. Out of the minted
knowledge of society, where the disjoint-composite-compound physiology of a monster comes into a whole on its edges, and secondly, as a whole body, a kind for itself, an independent entity with a specific name in the book of life.
We can contrast A from B, as A: monster as a distinct-contingent-random-unclassified- and limitive- having a synthetic and disjoint body. B: monster as a kind, having a whole body,
A specific name and place, restricted by the knowledge of biological classification. For the
first class as an instance, we could refer to Dona Haraway’s cyborgs, or Frankenstein zombies.
For the second class though, we could refer to ‘sons’ of the freudian ‘first father’ and the monsters of the natural history museum, which Zakia Hanafi enumerates in his book-
“The Monster In The Machine”
At first, monster is an isolated-distinct figure, a random and incapable formation, which is neither purified by the sacred, nor by family-social-odipal rules: it is not a natural creature, but always a monsterous composite,artifact, timed and temporary, which is usually incapable of being itself. It cannot make a legitimate self, and is always described by adopted terms (cow-head, lion-body, ). Yet, monsterology, as a revolutionary science of ticology in general criminology is seeking paths on which, monsters are able to reproduce and get to a natural-eternal-identified- and even holy self of theirs. This is a study of body, sans its organs- monsters and registration processes- specific names and pinocchioic poly-tics.
Anything new, any creation, formation, or generally speaking, any monster tries to develop into something more than a passive-random-unknown being. It wants to be an entity, greater than the totality of its components- a whole body. To do so, it is to imagine a new body for itself-a body without organs or a specific name. Thereafter, it could mint itself on bodies of texts,figures, and registries.
A careful analysis of zombies indicates the existence of other possible forms of registration and cognition in the context of transmit-ability concept. Prior to discussing these popular Hollywood monsters, a sharp distinction would better be drawn between scientific zombies and the other ones with super natural and magic origins. Not the zombies which are created by a wizard, in the movie ‘ White Zombie’, but the ones which are the offsprings of scientific accidents and unethical sciences. These zombies are often resulted from viral leakage, nuclear disaster, or any sci-tec disorder. Zombies are distinct from figures like Frankenstein in two aspects: 1-Ongoingly growing number of zombies; zombie is always a multiple monster- it is always ‘zombies’. 2- It is a monster which has succeeded to reproduce itself, but in a significantly different and independent way, compared to parental models in a family as an entity. In place of sexual reproduction, a zombie reproduces through transmission: The way it is registered and identified, is the same way it reproduces. Zombie-body is always a witness to the unknown pattern of morphogenesis, since it is merely a sign of another body which is infected, at all times. The very first zombie is always latent, and its multiplicity never scales down to ‘the singular’. Zombie is the disaster itself: slips on the ground,a blind-deaf force, an inferior violence which infects ‘the symbolic’. Zombies transmission is the actual notion tactical lines’ interconnectedness, an alliance to end all ancestories, generations , and geneologies, since nothing of symbolic memory’s parental discipline remains in multiplicity zombies. Thereafter, figures are cyborgs. According to an interpretation of cyborg manifesto by Donna Haraway, another level of schizotrategic monsters are identified. In fact Haraway’s cyborgs are schizoid body- machines. But the key point about them is the fact that, cyborg does not make any effort to unitedly-legitimately- and timelessly register or reproduce itself; but it refuses to be coded – in projected narratives of origins( stories of genesis), and consequently liberates itself from the limits of predefined forms of reproduction and sexuality. Accordingly, it does not make an attempt to establish itself on the Earth of geneologies, and it is consequently considered beyond the ‘oedipal’ structures of registry-production: It can be a kind, without literally being one- a kind beyond classification.
Monsterous body is a formation of self-image, which should always remain unimaginable.
This is the exact same etymologic definition of monster as a sign- an image which associates with something beyond itself- something unimaginable.conversly, what mostly happens is that, this monsterous image does not intend to merely represent another being- recognized of the fusion and combination of its components. It makes an attempt to be a statement of a different position, in and for itself, and not simply an imaginary formation made by its human creator.
To be this other being, a zombie should utilize tools of violence as it basically necessitates violence.
Jean-Luc Nancy discusses themes of this sort, in the second chapter of his book, regarding image. In this chapter which is titled: ” Image and Violence”, Nancy studies the relation between a truth, violence, and image: the relations between acts of projection from a whole body and its registration through violence, and the role of these in the formation of the integrity and atemporality of the created kinds. Pointing out the legislative role of violence from Walter Benjamin’s thoughts, Nancy manages to discuss the problematic relation between truth and violence, and well indicates that establishing any system-truth necessitates the act of violence, and how the make of a new form of truth is possible through violence.
“Violence always makes an image of itself, and image of self is the thing that protrudes from- and authoritizes the self”
In addition, Nancy shows that, the image is by no means the mimic, but it is equivalent to what it is representing: violence is an inward registry of image, the image of a whole body- distinct from basic composition of the material monster. As the image of the violent forces the projection of monsters’ dream body: It is the image that monsterizes the existence it calls for.
