Now will be a series of three 3x3x3 cubes:
spells out ‘au-to-nomy’ when all 3 are placed alongside, while the whole word ‘dependency’ will exits on each cube.
Having a good time.
Wow, how have I not seen this before. What a resource. Read the intro - pretty wild stuff going on over at Wikipedia.

‘If History IS “Time,” as it claims to be, then the uprising is a moment that springs up and out of Time, violates the “law” of History. If the State IS History, as it claims to be, then the insurrection is the forbidden moment, an unforgivable denial of the dialectic—shimmying up the pole and out of the smokehole, a shaman’s maneuver carried out at an “impossible angle” to the universe. History says the Revolution attains “permanence,” or at least duration, while the uprising is “temporary.” In this sense an uprising is like a “peak experience” as opposed to the standard of “ordinary” consciousness and experience.
In short, we’re not touting the TAZ as an exclusive end in itself, replacing all other forms of organization, tactics, and goals. We recommend it because it can provide the quality of enhancement associated with the uprising without necessarily leading to violence and martyrdom. The TAZ is like an uprising which does not engage directly with the State, a guerilla operation which liberates an area (of land, of time, of imagination) and then dissolves itself to re-form elsewhere/elsewhen, before the State can crush it. Because the State is concerned primarily with Simulation rather than substance, the TAZ can “occupy” these areas clandestinely and carry on its festal purposes for quite a while in relative peace. Perhaps certain small TAZs have lasted whole lifetimes because they went unnoticed, like hillbilly enclaves—because they never intersected with the Spectacle, never appeared outside that real life which is invisible to the agents of Simulation.
The “map” is a political abstract grid, a gigantic con enforced by the carrot/stick conditioning of the “Expert” State, until for most of us the map becomes the territory- -no longer “Turtle Island,” but “the USA.” And yet because the map is an abstraction it cannot cover Earth with 1:1 accuracy. Within the fractal complexities of actual geography the map can see only dimensional grids. Hidden enfolded immensities escape the measuring rod. The map is not accurate; the map cannot be accurate.’
now with animations!
The city of Toronto’s website reports there are 132 high rises currently under construction. It’s the most out of any city in the world.
Back in that mythical year 1968, in Paris, a German student leader named Rudy Dutschke came up with an idea that sounded blasphemically conservative to the young revolutionaries who were about to storm the next Bastille. Dutschke argued that trying to take the strongholds of bourgeois power - the educational, political and trade institutions - by force would amount to romantic heroism of the most ineffective kind. Instead, he proposed a rather less sexy strategy: go in, behave - and take over. He called it ‘the long march through the institutions’ and thereby essentially urged the protesting student generation to take the epitheton of ‘our future leaders’, bequeathed to them by their arch conservative parents who obviously hoped for continuity, serious. Of course he also meant that the route from the periphery of idealistic purism to the vile centers of practical life should not result in loosing one’s faith about what and why change was necessary to begin with, as it had done with generations of young ‘future leaders’ who had sowed their oats in ‘épater le bourgois’, before vanishing completely into the background of their ancien regime offices.
