Wikileaks and the new Global Epic?


bipedal_equality.gif

A global epic poem including History or 'tale of the tribe' aspires to create a planetary synthesis of symbolic information, striving for a balanced Multi-cultural 'exhibit' a tale that moves from geographical location to individual 'speech' to the global 'stage' while illuminating special details, and often therefore creating a whole new style. Is Wikileaks a whole new style, I think so?

A global epic hopes to bring new information to the people, to inform them of a Global Picture, and to lift the general heart--that great ball of crystal--up to the light, sharing the sources and holding 'objectivity' and 'fairness' in mind, body, and speech whenever possible. Attention to the source, the root causes and the marrow. Information flow, coherence, decoherence, inference and extrapolation.

In short, with a good editor, the Wikileaks files and their novel methods of distribution maybe a rough outline of 'the tale of the tribe' in some sense: a new global communication network of texts and speech that record a period of evolution of the information activist age. Are they a record of our trajectory towards 'open source' internet and the potential for radical political change, does Wikileaks present a model for planetary synergy? Is Wikileaks demonstrating superior intelligence and methodology that--obsoletes--what came before it? Are the texts sacred and Holy? What makes a text holy, what gives a text its security clearance level, how do secretness’ and sacredness relate to one another?

Wikileaks obsoleted and changed 'secret intelligence' into public reading material, producing a new widely read—fragmented--Global Epic, (in the hands of some journalists and writers) a specially edited series of texts, and video, that change--and change utterly--the entire worlds perception of Justice, equality and fairness at the highest levels of Government and Corporate business.

May I suggest a few pointers (below) for individuals interested in 'the tale of the tribe' as a way of interpreting Wikileaks and that may extend the possibilities of ‘poetry’? Maybe set some scenes to verse or to some music, an Opera with the strongest voices you could muster, mash-ups, theatre and stage shows, stand-up routines, Photoshop jobs, paintings and tales.

1. E-Prime: Presents an alternative way of thinking and processing languages that moves to removes some of the 'essentialism' and the certified and infallible 'isness spooks' from writing and speech, acting somewhat as a defense system, a linguistic methodology against the many shades of bullshit and 'spin' entrenched in our daily life. E-Prime works as a tool for nurturing semantic hygiene and 'good sense' when interpreting messages. I’m still learning to introduce E-prime, on occasion, into my own communications in 2011.

2. RAW: Dr. Robert Anton Wilson: Continues to inspire millions of alternative thinkers and writers around the world, this article is dedicated to RAW and I hope anyone reading this who has not yet READ HIM, will READ HIM. He wrote about our current information explosion for over 50 years in a clear and witty manner.

3. Global Village of Marshall McLuhan: imagined a new world of the electric man connected by Trillions of nodes in a Global Praxis of electric signals and ‘info’ clippings. The Global Village. His models give us a pre-internet 'lesson or two' in information processing, sensory bias, and world literature as a ‘the tale of the tribe’. McLuhan’s ideas may synthesize all six of these pointers into a punchy punch line—summary--for understanding how Wikileaks impacts the Global Village and the electronic man, history, culture and neuro-psychology.

4. Planetary Synergetics of Bucky Fuller: Fuller teaches us with a Planetary ‘synergy’ model, also pre-internet; that exhibits evidence for an all-around-the-world revolution in information processing, design science, nano-technology and further semantic hygiene, a design science and ‘language’ revolution. Bucky's World Game can show players the impact and difference between what he calls 'Killingry' and its opposite 'Livingry'; essential differentials in any 'Wikileaks' equation, I think. Who kills and who spills.

5. The Cantos of Ezra Pound. Ez's ‘Cantos’ maybe a blue-print for a poetic presentation of the 'illuminated' details of history re-illuminated by Wikileaks and its illuminating footnotes to current affairs. The Cantos exhibit a wonderfully global mixture of ‘tales’ and show us the possibilities of poetry and history copulating into a waltz. To hang speech next to speech, culture and nation-state twinned so as to compare and reflect, the Cantos help us distinguish information from noise, read them and study Pound’s ‘Juxtaposition’ and ‘Ideogrammic Method’ as if he were the 50 year long editor of the Canto’s-gate saga.

6. Joyce. Finnegans Wake can teach us, if you want it, information processing and multiculturalism on every page. What does it mean, what does it refer too, who is speaking, where is the action taking place? James Joyce can teach everybody to read again and hopefully to write and speak again with a critically balanced perception, a Quantum Celtic Taoist sensibility. Reading James Joyce’s Ulysses and Finnegans Wake can teach humanity to never ever forget the bawdy comedy of leaking secret letters and telling tales and spreading gossip and the ambiguity of languages.
