Side Notes : from film600/dict :
hypocrisy & hipocrite [w]:
Whereas hypokrisis applied to any sort of public performance (including the art of rhetoric), hypokrites was a technical term for a stage actor and was not considered an appropriate role for a public figure. In Athens in the 4th Century BC, for example, the great orator Demosthenes ridiculed his rival Aeschines, who had been a successful actor before taking up politics, as a hypokrites whose skill at impersonating characters on stage made him an untrustworthy politician. This negative view of the hypokrites, perhaps combined with the Roman disdain for actors, later shaded into the originally neutral hypokrisis. It is this later sense of hypokrisis as "play-acting," i.e. the assumption of a counterfeit persona, that gives the modern word hypocrisy its negative connotation.

Notes from the Cyber Underground
Do you want to have real VIRTUAL TOUR? Orpheum-Memphis Theatre!
It is almost two years ago I put together this page, while learning HTML (you see the silly graphics and sounds files on this and my old pages). Web is a sereach project in itself, but mostly I USE it for my practical needs, not as a new medium. I made this pages because of realization that Web is a dramatic medium, an electronic theatre of sorts -- vTheatre (virtual theatre).
Perhaps my notes and writing on the Postmodern, which I made 5 years ago before I discovered the Net and Web, can explain why I cosider cyber space as the first trully human space. (See SELF, POV, TECH, etc.) It's theatrical because it is the SPACE of DESIRE. It has man-made origins -- and potencial of being very personal.
And unlike the world of the flesh, this angelic desire has no means of fulfillment -- and there it becomes demonic.

"seduction is the world's elementary dynamic." (Jean Baudrillard, The Ecstasy of Communication, Semiotexte, Columbia Univ., 1988, p. 59)
This is page is a part of PataTheatre project, connected with Pomo pages (Script Analysis class). I studied postmodern theories before I learnt web-buiding and now I want to see how it could be expressed visually.
(New World Perspectives English edition, 1990, ISBN 0-920393-25-X):"For religion seduction was a strategy of the devil, whether in the guise of witchcraft or love. It is always the seduction of Evil - or of the world. It is the very artifice of the world."Oh, how close it seems at this time, seven years ago, when everything Internet, everything Web looked new and reachable...
"Today the exorcism is more violent and systematic. We are entering the era of final solutions.... Ending seduction" (p.2)
"..nothing can be greater than seduction itself, not even the order that destroys it" (p.2)
"We are living, in effect, amongst pure forms, in a radical obscenity, that is to say in the visible, undifferentiated obscenity of figures that were once secret and discrete. The same is true of the social, which today rules in its pure - i.e. empty and obscene - form. The same for seduction, which in its present form, having lost it;s elements of risk, suspense and sorcery, takes the form of a faint, undifferentiated obscenity." (p. 179)
"Is this [the current simulation-dampened seduction] to be sedcution's destiny? Or can we oppose this involutional fate and lay a wager on _seduction as destiny_? Production as destiny, or seduction as destiny? Against the deep structures and their truth, appearances and their destiny? Be that as it may, we are living today in non-sense, and if simulation is it's disenchanted form, seduction is its enchanted form. (p. 180)
* we move from "capitalist-productivist society to a neo-capitalist cybernetic order that aims now at total control." (p. 111)
"Anatomy is not destiny, nor is politics: seduction is destiny. It is what remains of a magical, fateful world, a risky, vertiginous and predestined world; it is what is quietly effective in a visibly efficient and stolid world." (Seduction, p. 180)
"The world is naked, the king is naked, and things are clear. All of production, and truth itself, are directed towards disclosure, the unbearable "truth" of sex being but the most recent consequence. Luckily, at bottom, there is nothing to it [again, if there is nothing to it, then there is something else, because there is a world]. And seduction still holds, in the face of truth, a most sibylline response, which is that "perhaps we wish to uncover the truth because it is so difficult to imagine it naked." (Seduction, pp 180-81)
