Episode of Naval Aviation In Audio, Radio program on Regina Community Radio. No.249, aired February 19, 2014.
During instramental tracks, short exerpts from the following three books were read in rotation:
William Blake – Vala, Or The Four Zoas, Night The First Guy Debord – Society Of The Spectacle, nos.26-39. Christian Bok – Eunoia, ch. “e”
Not to place a superfluous weir across the free-flow of the listener’s own thoughts, but there’s a fairly obvious theme of separation happening here. In Society of the Spectacle, Debord provides an update to Karl Marx’s observations in the 1850s & 60s on the separation of the worker from the product of labour (commodities). For Debord, writing in the 1950s, the entire world appears as a continuous flow of commodities, with the conditions of their production concealed behind the smooth, illusory sheen of market values, so our separation from reality becomes a general condition. William Blake, anticipating Marx a half-century earlier (c.1800), writes of humanity’s power to shape material existence (Tharmas) separating from our desired vision of the world (Enion). Apart from each other, Tharmas becomes a greedy spectre struggling for existence (in other words, a modern worker), and Enion becomes an aged, vagrant earth-goddess, representing nature devoid of imagination. Bok’s Eunoia separates the five English vowels each into their chapters. Chapter E tells the tale of Helen’s escapades in Troy, separated from her native Greece – for further thots, see my amazonian Eunioa review.
