Authors: Alexander R. Galloway, Eugene Thacker
Transform an entity from its current type to a new type.
Decreases the political or social standing of the predicate.
Assigns any other entity except for the one specified in the predicate.
Spontaneously makes further, perhaps useless, distinctions within a given entity.
Establishes a figurative relationship between two or more entities.
Combines two or more entities into a new hybrid entity cast from the "empty" type.
Invalidate the subject with respect to its predicate. The subject entity loses all its significance, and the predicate entity becomes a Thing-In-Itself. Opposite of Sublation.
Assigns new values to pre-existing entities, the meaning of which is known only to the machine.
Reassigns the predicate entity based on a negotiation between it and the subject entity.
Attaches a political evaluation to a type or code block.
Establishes a parasitical relationship between two or more entities.
Increases the political or social standing of the predicate.
Assumilate the subject in the predicate. The subject entity becomes the simple negation of the predicate entity. Opposite of Invalidation.
