83%SatisfactionGuaranteed. We cannot get the whole, can we? Yet, we desire it. We desire for the infinite. The missing percentages of the fulfillment become the very fuel and the force for desiring all the more. The endless flow of desire is once said to be the ontological motive for human kind for it to continue its life, for it to endure its existence and for it to maintain the very play of fort/da, becoming and/or unbecoming. However, hiding behind the theory of ontology of human species blinds us to see what comes to be concrete through the socialization of peoples. Desire seems to be irreducible in our present. Not precisely because we are ontologically, structurally, biologically or neurologically programmed to be endless desiring machines. But more aptly, it is because; we see no other possibilities in the metropolis and the mediapolis of ultra-capitalism and neo-liberal globality.
