Sample text

Jude schildert er im Rückblick aus dem Jahre 2001, was die neunziger Jahre der Welt gebracht haben und noch bringen werden. »Wir sampeln im Channel-Surfer-Stil moderne und postmoderne Philosophien von Marx und Bakunin bis zu Foucault und Donna Haraway. Darüberhaus behandeln wir philosophische Fragen des Gehirn-Fickens sowie magische und neue Techniken der Selbstprogrammierung«, sagt R. U. Sirius. »Und wir bieten viel harte technische Information, Outlaw-Wissen, das man sonst nur in anarchistischen Broschüren findet: Wie man sich in Bankkonten reinhackt, wie man sich in einer Hightech-Gesellschaft eine neue Identität besorgt, Dokumente fälscht, die eigene Wetware upgradet, wie man sich durch plastische Chirurgie verändert, Drogen anrührt, Spionage betreibt.

Oder stell dir eine künstliche Leber vor, die besser ist als die natürliche. « R. U. Sirius träumt allerdings nicht nur.

Wir werden ihn in den schmierigsten Stripläden von San Francisco auftreten lassen.

Das nordamerikanische Experiment ist der größte Erfolg in evolutionärer Geschichte. Jeder Genpool sendet seine Samen in Richtung Westen, als eine Form der Selbstselektion … Die Pilgermütter und -väter wollten einen Platz finden, an dem sie die kollektive verrückte freakige Wirklichkeit ausleben konnten, an die sie glaubten. Deutlichstes Indiz für diesen Teil der Traditionslinie ist Timothy Leary selbst. Der große alte Verrückte der Cyberbewegung begann seine Gegenkultur-Karriere in den frühen sechziger Jahren damit, dass er als Harvard-Psychologe LSD zu freiwilligen Experimenten verteilte, deren Sinn es im wesentlichen war, die Mauern der Realität zu durchbrechen und in neue Wirklichkeitsbereiche vorzudringen.
