Burroughs
Last chapter: p. 205
Technique: -non-sensical
There is spacing and silences when there are dashes
Some material is drawn from other sources, like old rock songs, some of it is
cultural/recognizable
Some of it is stories that have been mashed together, providing new insights to them
When reading, look for themes, repetitions, colours, listen to what’s happening
One theme: alien conspiracies
They are all about issues of control and they are non-human
The control is being exerted on us
Heidegger/ enframing
Non-human preceeds us, calls us to command
Man responds revealing by challenging forth
Already find themselves
These are the conditions that make possible revealing
The river appears as energy
Aliens give sense of domination of us, it is nothing human
Question concerning technology, p. 13-14
A car is not an object separate from us, it is there and available for us to order

They have become an energy reserve and have been reduced to that, this is what the aliens are

Control machine has been disconnected: language/tracks
