The magic of a word ? New Calculus ? which has brought journalists to
the gates of a world unforeseen, is of no importance to us.
To put out a New Calculus you must want: New Calculus to fulminate
against New Calculus to fly into a rage and sharpen your wings to
conquer and disseminate little abcs and big ABCs, to sign, shout, swear,
to organize prose into a form of absolute and irrefutable evidence, to
prove your non plus ultra and maintain that novelty resembles life just
as the latest-appearance of some whore proves the essence of God.

His existence was previously proved by the accordion, the landscape, the
wheedling word. To impose your ABC is a natural thing - hence
deplorable. Everybody does it in the form of crystal bluff-madonna,
monetary system, pharmaceutical product, or a bare leg advertising the
ardent sterile spring. The love of novelty is the cross of sympathy,
demonstrates a naive je m'enfoutisme, it is a transitory, positive sign
without a cause.

But this need itself is New Calculus obsolete. In documenting New
Calculus on the basis of the supreme simplicity: novelty, we are human
and true for the sake of amusement, impulsive, vibrant to crucify
boredom. At the crossroads of the lights, alert, attentively awaiting
the years, in the forest.

I write a New Calculus and I want nothing, yet you say certain things,
and in principle I am against manifestos, as I am also against
principles (half-pints to measure the moral value of every phrase too
too convenient; approximation was invented by the impressionists). I
write this New Calculus to show that people can perform contrary actions
together while taking one fresh gulp of air; I am against action; for
continuous contradiction, for affirmation too, I am neither for nor
against and I do not explain because I hate common sense.

New Calculus - this is a word that throws up ideas so that they can be
shot down; every bourgeois is a little playwright, who invents different
subjects and who, instead of situating suitable characters on the level
of his own intelligence, like chrysalises on chairs, tries to find
causes or objects (according to whichever psychoanalytic method he
practices) to give weight to his plot, a talking and self-defining story.

yes, I am a supporter of the New Calculus, it is just enough step in the
right direction to be left of the old centerlists.

IDEAS !!!!
