we will wait until satisfied lights become unsatisfied.

Apple Magick is mostly based on the Tolkacz Bias. However, the second stanza is from Loss Glazier’s White Face Bromeliades and the rest is a bunch of cyphers I spit off the top of my brain. This poem actually has no name, but for the purposes of posting it on Gnoetry Daily, I gave it one. It’s part of a larger collection which is currently being produxXored.

Also, a new version of Infinite Monkeys is available featuring some of the new bias stuff I’ve plugging. I’m going to plug it again: code.google.com/p/infinitemonkeys/downloads/list. Obviously there is a lot more work to do.

    a bunch of cyphers I spit off the top of my brain

    In a possibly related note, I’ve been thinking of ways to mix computational techniques with surrealist style free-association writing. One way is markov-chaining n-grams up to a certain word, then free-associating a couple words, then markov-chaining again. Another way is automatically extracting a narrative structure from a story (for example: for each paragraph, taking the proper nouns, action verbs, and direct objects) and free-associating new text to fill out the structure.

    Another possibility is more Oulipo-like:

    1. flip to three places in a book. at each place, memorize the first 2-3 words you see.
    2. recite the words to the next person you see
    3. if they say something other than “huh?” or some variant, write down the words for further use.
    4. go to 1.

    There’d likely be subconscious authoring in step 1, because the attention mechanisms and long-term memories of humans involve subconscious processing. Step 3 involves collaborative authoring, because the person you’re talking to acts as an evaluation mechanism for high-affect language.

    Either of these approaches seem likely to provide texts open to multiple readings.

    That’s pretty awesome, because you’re basically describing what I do (as far as free association). A lot of these things are built on randomly generated associations. I think you could definitely consider what I do influenced by surrealism, and also, hyperrealism. But either way, I’m interested in the unconscious processes and how they are employed in the creative act. Much of the CG stuff allows you to reassign the unconscious to choice, and the non-conscious becomes the generative. The conscious part usually comes in the form of framing or naming and most certainly editing. Consider that the first surrealists (and occultists) practiced… automatic writing.

    :)

    This is the next emanation.
