All of childhood's unanswered questions must finally be passed back to the town and answered there. Heroes and bogey men, values and dislikes, are first encountered and labeled in that early environment. In later years they change faces, places and maybe races, tactics, intensities and goals, but beneath those penetrable masks they wear forever the stocking-capped faces of childhood.

Uta Hagen (b. 1919), U.S. actor. Respect for Acting, pt. 1, ch. 1 (1973).

The village had institutionalized all human functions in forms of low intensity. . . . Participation was high and organization was low. This is the formula for stability.

The love of the famous, like all strong passions, is quite abstract. Its intensity can be measured mathematically, and it is independent of persons.

The modern nose, like the modern eye, has developed a sort of microscopic, intercellular intensity which makes our human internal linkcontacts painful and revolting.

Fashion is the most intense expression of the phenomenon of neomania, which has grown ever since the birth of capitalism. Neomania assumes that purchasing the new is the same as acquiring value. . . . If the purchase of a new garment coincides with the wearing out of an old one, then obviously there is no fashion. If a garment is worn beyond the moment of its natural replacement, there is pauperization. Fashion flourishes on surplus, when someone buys more than he or she needs.
Stephen Bayley (b. 1951), British design critic. Taste, pt. 2, "Fashion: Being and Dressing" (1991).

The cities of the world are concentric, internal linkisomorphic, synchronic. Only one exists and you are always in the same one. It's the effect of their permanent revolution, their intense circulation, their instantaneous magnetism.

Not many appreciate the ultimate power and potential usefulness of basic knowledge accumulated by obscure, unseen investigators who, in a lifetime of intensive study, may never see any practical use for their findings but who go on seeking answers to the unknown without thought of financial or practical gain.

To associate with other like-minded people in small, purposeful groups is for the great majority of men and women a source of profound psychological satisfaction. Exclusiveness will add to the pleasure of being several, but at one; and secrecy will intensify it almost to internal linkecstasy.

"Dismantle and put together again till one gets intensity."

The amount of internal linkinformation available to each person, measured in bits by neurons and internal linkprocessed with the help of the complementary prostheses of the brain, is nowadays increasing at an exponential rate. The internal linkintensity of internal linktime is increasing. Temporal internal linkbubbles form and internal linkevolve with their own dynamics. The creation of new information, the sharing of information through newinternal linknetworks curve space-time, produces a basin, an internal linkattractor. In contrast to the way in which thermodynamic capital is diminished when one uses it, irreversibly transforming itself into entropy, what could be termed a "internal linksymbiotic" capital increases its value with increased usage: it produces more and more interests.

1. Continually expand the scope, source, intensity of the internal linkinformation you receive.

2. Constantly revise your internal linkreality maps, and seek new metaphors about the future to understand what's happening now.

3. Develop external internal linknetworks for increasing intelligence.  In particular, spend all your internal linktime with people are smart or smarter than you.  We assume that you are the Intelligence Agent from you gene pool, so you will seek Intelligence Agents from other gene-pools who will stimulate you to get smarter.

A cool medium, like hieroglyphic or idiogamic written characters, has  very different effects from the hot and explosive medium of the phonetic alphabet. The alphabet, when pushed to a high degree of abstract visual intensity, became typography. The printed word with its specialist intensity, burst the bonds of medieval corporate guilds and monasteries, creating extreme individualist patterns of enterprise and monopoly. But the typical reversal occurred when extremes of monopoly brought back the corporation, with its impersonal empire over many lives. The hotting up of the medium of writing to repeatable prints intensity, led to nationalism and the religious wars of the 16th Century. The heavy and unwieldy media such as stone, are internal linktime-binders, used for writing, they are very cool indeed, and serve to unify the age, whereas paper is a hot medium, which serves to unify space horizontally, both in political and internal linkentertainment internal linkempires.”

"The crowd is open so long as its growth is not impeded; it is closed when its growth is limited… The stagnating crowd lives for its discharge… the internal linkprocess here starts not with equality but with density… In the rhythmic crowd… density and equality coincide from the beginning. Everything here depends on movement."

intensity centered

The rhythmic, or throbbing crowd is characterised by a specific state of communal excitement: "the means of achieving this state was first of all the rhythm of their feet, repeating and multiplied," not moving, but gathering intensity at one place and creating frenzy.
