Bringing forth of worlds

via Haunted Geographies’ “Mining Hyperstition”

Essentially the CCRU read hyperstition as the way that ‘fictions make themselves real’— a birthing process that seems close to Maturana and Varela’s bringing forth of worlds.

From Wikipedia’s entry on Autopoiesis

The term was originally introduced by Chilean biologists Humberto Maturana and Francisco Varela in 1972:

An autopoietic machine is a machine organized (defined as a unity) as a network of processes of production (transformation and destruction) of components which: (i) through their interactions and transformations continuously regenerate and realize the network of processes (relations) that produced them; and (ii) constitute it (the machine) as a concrete unity in space in which they (the components) exist by specifying the topological domain of its realization as such a network.

[…] the space defined by an autopoietic system is self-contained and cannot be described by using dimensions that define another space. When we refer to our interactions with a concrete autopoietic system, however, we project this system on the space of our manipulations and make a description of this projection.
