On the Cranial Nerves of Barbarians II: A Carp Sanctuary: on demand

Already unlocked? for access

Operating as a practical philosophy of mind, PPL’s new operetta draws on social research and stages live experiments, pitching AI-processed perversions of German avant-garde political theatre alongside expressionist debates as to whether to give sanctuary to the souls of the barbus L catfish (a type of carp), who both perished in the dissection practices of Büchner and Freud and currently clog the watersheds of North America. Perhaps, our research suggests, Mental Representation is no more a way of nature than plastic is a perfect food, and anyone who loves consciousness should be ready to perish for it.
