Cut word lines — Cut music lines — Smash the control images — Smash the control machine — Burn the books — Kill the priests — Kill! Kill! Kill! -The Soft Machine by William S. Burroughs

The title The Soft Machine is a name for the human body, and the main theme of the book (as explicitly written in an appendix added to the 1968, British edition) concerns how control mechanisms invade the body.

The main plot appears in linear prose in chapter VII, The Mayan Caper. This chapter portrays a secret agent who has the ability to change bodies or metamorphose his own body using "U.T." (undifferentiated tissue). As such an agent he makes a time travel machine and takes on a gang of Mayan priests who use the Mayan calendar to control the minds of slave laborers used for planting maize. The calendar images are written in books and placed on a magnetic tape and transmitted as sounds to control the slaves. The agent manages to infiltrate the slaves and replace the magnetic tape with a totally different message: "burn the books, kill the priests", which causes the downfall of their regime.

Notes:

HE WAS INTO THE OCCULT

While an undergraduate at Harvard Burroughs became interested in witchcraft, and his investigations into the occult continued throughout his life. He spent hours staring at mirrors and crystals in order to experience visions and believed that soulmates could achieve perfect telepathy. He also believed in demonic possession, and that he himself was possessed by an 'Ugly Spirit' who had invaded him the moment before he killed his wife, and took root in his soul. In the 1960s he spent a few years as a Scientology enthusiast, but he never left behind his interest in the occult, and shortly before his death he was dabbling in Indian shamanism.

THE SOFT MACHINE - Self Titled Debut album (CPLP-4500X), 1968. Have you heard this? An English underground Rock and Jazz group from Canterbury, England where they were part of the "Canterbury scene". This was loosely defined as a type of music popular at the time and place. It was progressive rock, psychadelia and avante-garde jazz. This record is insanely good not just the content but the mastering as well. The cover is VG, the vinyl is a strong VG++. #thesoftmachine #lp #psychadelic #psychedelia #rock #jazz #avantgarde #jazzfusion #60s #progressiverock #truth #records #vintage #60savantegard #vinyl #rarefind #rarerecords #1968

The Nova Trilogy Book I
————
The priest had me transferred to janitor work in the temple where I witnessed some executions and saw the prisoners torn body and soul into writhing insect fragments by the ovens, and learned that the giant centipedes were born in the ovens from these mutilated screaming fragments — It was time to act — Using the drug the doctor had given me, I took over the priest's body, gained access to the room where the codices were kept, and photographed the books — Equipped now with sound and image track of the control machine I was in position to dismantle it — I had only to mix the order of recordings and the order of images and the changed order would be picked up and fed back into the machine — I had recordings of all agricultural operations, cutting and burning brush etc.— I now correlated the recordings of burning brush with the image track of this operation, and shuffled the time so that the order to burn came late and a year's crop was lost— Famine weakening control lines, I cut radio static into the control music and festival recordings together with sound and image track rebellion.

"Cut word lines — Cut music lines — Smash the control images — Smash the control machine — Burn the books— Kill the priests — Kill! Kill! Kill! —"

UKÁZKA Z KNIHY... William S. Burroughs: Hebká mašinka (přel. Josef Rauvolf, Argo 2019) – Již od svého vstupu do světa literatury budil americký prozaik William S. Burroughs náležitý rozruch – a i to je dosti slabý výraz na emoce, jež jeho knihy provázely. Byly zakazovány a nechápány, autor sám byl jedněmi zatracován a proklínán jako šarlatán a literární zvrhlík, jinými naopak vynášen jako věrozvěst nových pohledů i přístupů. Bylo tomu již v případě jeho skandály proslaveného arcidíla Nahý oběd, a podobné reakce provázely i jeho další román Hebká mašinka (The Soft Machine). – Ukázku z knihy si můžete přečíst NA WEBU LITERÁRNÍCH NOVIN (link v Bio). @argo.cz #nakladatelstviargo #burroughs #williamburroughs #williamsburroughs #thesoftmachine #hebkamasinka #beatgeneration #beatnici #literatura #proza #roman #noveknihy #čtení #literárky
