I can practically feel this rewiring my brain What is the zone of neuronal interconnection but a vast Nemat Space the increasingly fractal cavities the writing often explores A bit like Chris Kraus and Borges collabing on DeleuzeLovecraft slash fic Borderline parody of academic theoritical writing as paranoid conspiracy except that many of the conclusions Negarestani draws as he constructs his wild strange connections MENA archeological history oil economics petro polytics radical Islamic splinter groups the war on terror in the just pre ISIS days actually ring awfully true metaphorically and actually It's a strange sort of reading experience often I read through stretches without feeling like I'm taking in the dense prose only to find my thoughts reshaped by things I didn't realize I'd understood in the coming days Oddly subversive and highly uniue

Cyclonopedia is a work of philosophy embedded in a horror novel which is wrapped in a literary hoax involving the written legacy of Dr Hamid Parsani recently disappeared While comparisons to House of Leaves are apt Cyclonopedia offers theory than plot and leaves a thick oily residue in your brainpan Is the Middle East an intelligent entity Does the earth yearn for solar immolation What is the esoteric role of oil in the war on terror The book's blurb rounds it all out nicelyAn American woman arrives in Istanbul to meet a pseudonymous online acuaintance who never arrives Discovering a strange manuscript in her hotel room she follows up its cryptic clues only to discover plot holes and begins to wonder whether her friend was a fictional uantity all along Meanwhile as the War on Terror escalates the US is dragged into an asymmetrical engagement with occultures whose principles are ancient obscure and saturated in oil It is as if war itself is feeding upon the warmachines leveling cities into the desert seducing the aggressors into the dark heart of oil Among the many topics considered I was particularly interested by the idea of hyperstition fiction that comes to be regarded as true Cyclonopedia seeks to open such a space and widly succeeds on the merit of the ideas it presents Much of the book seems to build upon the work of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guatari whose work I haven't read This can make for some very heavy going but ultimately one is rewarded again and again with fascinating ideas about the polytics of decay the insurgency of dust the nature of desert demons or Djnun female Djinn and how they lay their victims open and a model of post modern warfare based on the nature of war machines and the flow of oil Sometimes the academic style masks the sheer weirdness of the text which becomes increasingly Lovecraftian until it focuses on the nature of Lovecraft himselfIt's useful to consider the external media cited in this work specifically two films Claire Denis's 'Trouble Every Day' and E Elias Merhige's ghastly 'Begotten' Merhige also gives the book a glowing review It may be useful to watch these in tandem with reading this bookI would suggest that Cyclonopedia in its utterly uniue way is a game changer As it works its mad spell on the reader she or he begins to feel shaken and possessed by its peculiar ideas As hyperstition it creates doubt and offers a radical new way of considering politics religion warfare and even cosmology It will scar you and take its pound of flesh too It may not be possible to wake from the nightmare that Cyclonopedia induces Proceed with caution

Sui generis confounding disturbing difficult absorbing and ingenious all of these adjectives are fitting labels to describe Cyclonopedia a work of theoretical fiction by Iranian philosopher Reza Negarestani that falls about halfway between theory and fiction a nebulous netherpoint with blurred edges that is so utterly appropriate to the contents that lie withinPosit an Earth that in its submissive wholeness is an ordered and orderly component of the Solar Empire the hegemonic domain structured within Life and Chronic Time of the creative god Posit further that the constrained and hierarchical this wholeness of the Earth strives to be the closed its economic religious political and philosophic systems the it attracts and opens itself to be torn and inseminated and polluted with disease to the void the Outside the UnLife of Abyssal Time which can be known and yet completely unknowable which hungers for the solid whole in eual measure to the desire of the latter for its alien nothingness Posit yet further that certain forces exist that have found in radical opposition to hegemonic creation the power of Polytics and Schizotrategy a power that lures the Outside Void to the Inside Solid This Outsider Become Insider is a venom of nullity that works its revolution in all manners and memes of decay intoxicating politics infecting religion gutteralizing language into ululating mechanical barks and hisses; manifesting War as an entity that entices tactical War Machines into strategic annihilation; extending the beginnings and terminations of the Hegemon by muddying the elements mating Dust with Water to create bacterial oil oil that will traverse from worm gnawed vermicular tunnels to manufactured pipelines to be carried as hydrocarbonic Islamic insurgents into the heart of liberal democracy and ignite them to warlike invading madness; Tellurian uprisings that furiously and stealthily drive the world towards meltdown towards the goal of millennia of complicity with anonymous materials in erecting a bridge linking the molten core of the Earth with the thermonuclear gaze of the Sun in an effort to achieve immanence and enact the Xerodrome the horizontal desert of monotheistic apocalypse Describe this warped perverted and all encompassing construct through philosophy theosophy petrology philology mathematics alchemy archeology and demonology yet weaving this theoretical and heretical edifice around gaping plot holes through which the radical outside forces can corkscrew their cyclonic alterations as reuired and you have the numbing fascinating and flat out mindfucking genius of CyclonopediaNow this book is labour intensive its two hundred and twenty one pages will take hours to be read re read puzzled over and then read again just to try and follow the madcap whirlwind of Negarestani's imposing thought process There are two chapters in particular that in expounding upon the philosophy of Deleuze and Guattari are written in the impenetrable manner that I presume the aforementioned pair sadistically indulge in and which left my eyes bleeding Yet the glimpses into the world of ancient Mesopotamia and Iran its sorcerers and mythologies and demons and oil soaked lunacies wickedly expounded upon by the decrepit and obsessive Iranian scholar apostate Hamid Parsani combined with filmic and literary exegesis realtime War on Terror pulp horror dissertations upon gnostic origin and its pervasive flesh abhorring rebellion are enthralling and mysterious and evil Different avenues of approach from Lovecraftian Cthonic and ancient Aryan Fallen Sun Gods to Al aeda terrorism and French cinema are used to link and merge the startlingly workable interconnected theories that the authors hashave cooked up; and by the time the book has been finished its implausible weirdness has wormed itself into the reader's brain to the point that its very implausibility has made the entire expostulation plausible There are many sicknesses and calamities in the world that suddenly seem startlingly and starkly understandable and you may very well find yourself never looking at religion or the military without a uestioning furrowed brow never watching an archeological documentary on television without a shudder; never again filling your car without a ueasy glance at the noisome liuid that drives its engine drives the country drives the world
