The Development of the Net-Work The net-work of dasein (mind, thought, yearning, mania, remembrance) develops

in a layered fashion, where each emergent layer incorporates the layer that was its basis, such that at any given developmental level there is always only one set of aspects that form the net-work. These aspects cannot be taken as ’parts’, the sum of which is the net-work, as they only persist as aspects while the net-work functions. ’Stopping the net-work’ in order to analyze its parts simply destroys the focus of inquiry. In systems theory terms simple net-works develop into more complex networks through emergence of new properties and eventually new net-works of increasing complexity once the net-work reaches a certain level of complexity. Each net-work self organizes according to the ’principle’ of self organization. Searching for this principle as a ’universal law’ is misguided from the beginning as it only exists as the principle of no principle. Simple net-works such as the GaianDB from IBM demonstrate this self organization without any work on the part of the developer other than the ability of aspects of the base net-work to discover each other and create a relation, and in this creation of relations eventually the relations themselves emerge into a new, more complex net-work that includes as aspects all the net-works that form its basis. Mind or thought is different in all aspects to reason, which fundamentally means reckoning, primarily in business affairs. The ’age of reason’ thus can be viewed as a change from thinking as yearning through remembrance, which included madness as pointed out by Foucault, to science as an accounting procedure. The extremes of mind, such as mania or other madness, are the antithesis of reason simply because thought and mind are themselves the antithesis of reason. Mind, thinking, are themselves the original hairetikos, the "able to choose," that alone can combat reason, with its laws that promote determinism, whether on the part of the universe or dasein. Trammelled thought will eventually lead to mania, the violent excess of yearning to choose, to be the heretic par excellence. Understanding arises from the ability to choose, pick out, and discern among possibilities. Taking or choosing itself is hairesis, or heresy. Ereignis, as event of appropriation, propriation, enowning or mastery is intrinsically heretical, not to a specific group or set of laws or beliefs, but to all groups, laws and beliefs. The betrayal of Nazism, from a Heideggerian point of view, lay in its unwillingness to be violent in a radical enough manner. The revolt was not a true event but a pseudo event designed specifically to maintain the status quo by channeling violence against an invented enemy that existed as a minority, while the laws and beliefs that required the violence were the laws and beliefs of the religious/metaphysical world that ended when Hegel reevaluated its foundational experience in a non religious manner, thus exhausting its possibilities. This lack of true radicality can be levelled equally against Stalinism and the Cultural Revolution of Mao. For Heidegger, then, Nazism betrayed its potential to oppose the two main forms of technological nihilism, namely Stalinism and 1

Americanism. Its betrayal lay in its becoming no more than a third branch of technological nihilism, attached to reactionary ideology. Dialectically the development of the net-work of follows exactly on the format of Hegel’s Phenomenology of Mind. The identity sequentially arises from the origin of understanding the net-work’s development out of a specific, personal yet seemingly transcendent experience. This experience is the understanding of understanding itself, arising in an emergent fashion as a net-work of self-reinforcing understandings. Marx, Nietzsche, and Heidegger each furthered the non religious interpretation of this understanding, previously explained religious/metaphysically as divine revelation. Heidegger’s crucial early contribution was the understanding of the transcendent itself as a finite, human phenomenon - ekstasis - or standing-apart, correlative to the seemingly transcendent nature of the experience.
