"Through cybernetics, the symbol is embodied in an apparatus—with which it is not to be confused, the apparatus being just its support. And it is embodied in it in a literally trans-subjective way....And when I say  machine, you can sense that it isn't simply a little box..." -Lacan

[Theo A. Nusyg [contact] [trace]
is the clumsy coder with the premonition that his parity with The SYborg-an-sich will have been a necessary fiction. Nusyg was an alcoholic sculptor spending time among 7th-generation speed jugglers, dancing girls, graduate students, boxing fans, and other ephemera of Disneyland, when a series of chats with Leander Gaux-Yon drew him to the periphery of the FakeText circle (see The SYborg mythos). His involvement in FakeText increased, and he agreed to sculpt The SYborg's portrait; this brought The SYborg and Nusyg together as collaborators and made Bestand possible online. Nusyg has again and again glimpsed The Shining Path Of Righteousness. He endeavors to walk everyday. He is fond of quoting Benjamin: "The work is the death mask of its conception."]

{gray-Neo and e-Lux
We started drinking a lot in NYC on the day we quit NYU. We both dropped this boring digital media class on the same day, but we bumped into each other at the registrar and decided to go to a bar together. Turns out we had a lot to talk about. We met Theo randomly one night down at Max Fish, and we dug the stuff he was doing with The SYborg. We're usually looking for cheap beer when we go out and always down with good conversation.

anaphanisiac. antiphlebotomist. sometime apostate of the law of gravity (one should say, the faith in gravity, literally a kind of seriousness devolving upon a close investment with meat, any meat, even halal meat). member: outpatients' ingroup interminable. oi!

{Cassandra [contact]
Erstwhile prophet with a penchant for the misaligned. Herself maligned, misunderstood. Hobbies include pissing just about anywhere, stealing words, borrowing thoughts. Usually goes something like this: "the drunk and the madman inside me take a liking to each other. They sit down on the ground together..." and chaos ensues.

This form
is available at the top and bottom of each (topoi) page. Send The SYborg additional field notes, new urban coordinates, lexicalia, research, The Word On The Street. Note: The SYborg may idiosyncratically tweakedit—as little as possible!—materials it receives; in some cases it may ignore them altogether.

is the page reflecting your contributions to topography. And satellites—you—are not peripherals, as if The SYborg were some kind of CPU, for in the first place the way of The SYborg is satelliting, orbiting what already is orbiting, in a field of force. Satellites orbiting The SYborg orbiting satellites: topography is a collective venture.

"But, then, the sameness of the authentically existing self is separated ontologically by a gap from the identity of the I maintaining itself in the multiplicity of its 'experiences.'" -Heidegger
