    Wigglism & Zoacodes
    Project: Polytopia
    From its inception Wigglism has promoted the notion that the truth, or that which seems true, is interactively constructed with the world as a whole, not just with other humans or in the limited text space known as discourse. As dialogues surrounding the evolving manifesto have suggested, the most significant property of an interactively determined truth is not its veracity but the vitality in the collaboration in which it emerges. Wigglism also points to a post-art, post-science, post-human world in which both objective reality and subjective aesthetics give way to a living, subjective ecosystem. This supports an emerging green culture underscored by an ethic of nurturing vital systems. (from Wikipedia)

    The Wigglism Manifesto


    Loop into strange coilings, this coiling. Well up in the fibrillations of this hysterical continuum, this bionic boiling. Rise up and nurture the wiggling – of sinew and circuit, riot and union, mud and imagination. Nurture with the loaded logic of the living, with ceaseless reflection and a moving center.

    Ovulate your tender eggs, your shivering codes, into the blood of interconnection. Soak tendrils of thought and gesture in an ethical jelly of feedback. Infuse phantoms and facts with equal measures of visceral significance. Creep along the rivulets and curls of writhing truth, this feral fetus squinting in a boundless womb of cultivations.

    Breed turbulent creatures in a mongrel jungle of plasma, machines and minds. Embrace these creatures, these hives, these worlds. Keep that which is lively, and that which sustains life, in succulent focus. May the lonely pools of science, art and heaven congeal into a sea of quivering being.

    At this twist in the orgy of Mystery we are drunk with the sweat of the stars, with that which seems alive, with lunges, lickings and startled presences. We fuse with the creatures of our devotion, becoming everything we encounter, becoming devotion itself. We transmute mind and matter into a zoology of spirit.

    Dare to suckle this wild vapor. Convulse and clutch in waves of milky wonder. Siphon every atom, and theory of atom, into the folds of our collective screen, our flesh. Melt into the monstrous, grooving spasm of the infinite wiggling.

    Nurture the wiggling, for that which wiggles is amazing.

    The Nervoid Connection

    We do not comprehend an object so much as entwine with it. We and the object quiver in a marmalade of probabilities, groping for a hold upon a node materializing between us. As we are prone to sense objects everywhere, we are drawn to a firmament of contact points, a field of seductions, a ubiquitous node.

    This situation might be reduced to mere psychology: we bumble into phantoms of human attention, our integrated consciousness projecting upon the observed, conjuring up a soul, a point. But without proof of objects or consciousness, we cannot be sure our attention is inside you or me, within our minds or outside in the world.

    So let us simply abandon the obsession to locate anything anywhere. We kiss goodbye both objectivity and subjectivity, science and art. We dissolve all arguments, acquiescing to an expression about the living node, about the charm of our world, which can be said with sheer presence:




    We are this node.




    The Zoacodes are a system of network ethics, visualized into the behavior of nodes and how those nodes interact and relate to one another. I see Zoacodes as being an integral part of how emotional empathic interaction works in hyperconnectivity.

    Visit the NervePool, Ebon Fisher's website, and check out all the beautiful ZOACODES:

    Which Zoacode are you contemplating today?

    Extremely intense, pleasurable and exciting. I see an immense potential here for collaboration with the Polytopia.
    Thanks for this
