A platform for research, discussion and knowledge production. The subtext is the implicit meaning beneath the surface. One can detect its agency in marketing, ideology and propaganda, but also in the communicative strategies of activists, artists and gang members.
Evangelists speak of the word, the press and the hypertext. Simplification has always been a blessing and a struggle. Since quantum analysis began to imply 'conscious matter', the encounter between scientific and spiritual philosophies has produced a battleground, the front line of which is global. In globality or ‘total globalisation’ markets produce what Ntone Edjabe and Edgar Pieterse highlight as a simultaneity of,
...conflict and cooperation, complicity and duplicity, cohesion and instability, (creating) a profound sense of entanglement and the desire for escape.
-African Cities Reader II: Mobility and Fixtures, 2011
