ReMarx Brothers Siblinghood

In 1938, the Marx Brothers were involved in an alien abduction controversy in the New Jersey countryside. It was omitted from the most recent publication of weird New Jersey due to reasons unknown, but it has been an underground legend in New Jersey for years. The facts are difficult to distill but it seems as if Dorothy Parker and the Algonquin Round Table was involved, as was the Parisian College of Pataphysics, which the Marx Brothers taught at, as was a musical number.

1. The Marx Brothers
2. Dorothy Parker
3. Alien abduction
4. A pie fight
5. A musical number

If you know anything about the events that unfolded in the New Jersey countryside involving the above five criteria, please comment immediately, we want to believe.

Who is Going to Play Raymond Roussel When They Make a Movie About his Life?

Raymond Roussel was brought to the American consciousness when John Asheberry began translating some of his books into English. He was a neurasthenic and poet, a mathematically inclined drug addict and totally self-published author who was dedicating to writing some of the most fantastic and clinically oneirometric books in existence. Francois Caradec's biography has finally come to America in English thanks to a stupendous translation by Ian Monk, and it is only a matter of time before Hollywood adapts it for the big screen. The question we must ask ourselves is "Who is going to play him?" When Foucault wrote his only full-length treatise on literature, Death and the Labyrinth, it was about Roussel. In the intro to the book
Foucault said that Proust's homosexually was obscured by his literature, Gide's homosexuality was overt and Roussel's was a non-issue; so the only way to write a book about Roussel was to treat his sexuality how it was presented, as a non-issue. It is too bad James Dean couldn't be here today.

Up-Wingers Manifesto by FM 2030


This is a glorious moment in human evolution.
These are the years, the decades, when so far as we know for the first time in evolution, living beings have broken away from this planet to stream to other worlds.
These are the years, the decades, when so far as we know for the first time living beings on this planet are transforming their biologies to overcome aging and death.
Millions of years from now - wherever we are in the Universe - whoever we are - however we look - we will always remember these years.

We live at a rare evolutionary turning point yet our attitudes and ideologies have not caught up.
We are still too programmed by the oldworld psychology of failure, too hobbled by guilt and shame and self-doubt, too scarred by eons of suffering and privation - to fully appreciate the meaning of our New Age.
There is no philosophy, no ideology, no social or political system to define and guide our emerging situation in the world and in the Universe.
The UpWing philosophy is a visionary new thrust beyond Right and Left-wing, beyond conservative and conventional radical. Beyond all our age-old philosophies and ideologies.
We UpWingers want to facilitate the flow to the emerging post-industrial world.
We also want to accelerate humanity's thrust to the next stage in evolution.

Specifically we want to marshall humanity's genius to overcome our supreme tragedies - aging and death.
We want to help accelerate the colonization of our solar system and open up this infinite Universe of infinite space, infinite resources, infinite potentials.
We want to speed up the thrust to post-industrial telespheres, such as teleduction and telemedicine which can instantly provide services to anyone anywhere.
We want to help accelerate the surge to upcoming worlds of undreamed abundance. Clean, cheap, limitless energy. Limitless food. Limitless raw materials.
We want to help spread the benefits of the Biological Revolution, the new genetics, the Brain Revolution giving each one of us control over our own bodies, our own minds, our own emotions. Allowing us biological freedoms never before possible.
We want to hasten the evolution to universal telegenesis and universal parenthood where every child is genetically preplanned, every child wanted, every child cared for. We want to help liberate children from the traumas of exclusive parenthood that every child may belong biologically and socially to the whole world.
We want to move beyond Capitalist/Socialist economies to the upcoming teleconomics of Cybernation, Abundance, Leisure.
We want to advance beyond leadership and representative democracies to ELECTRONIC DEMOCRACY enabling everyone to participate directly and immediately in all important decision-making.
We want to help the thrust beyond feudal mud villages and decaying industrial cities to 21st century instant modular communities which fuse the best of nature with the new tele technologies and the new liberated life styles.
We want to help accelerate the thrust beyond nations, ethnic groups, races to create a global conscious-ness, global institutions, a global language, global citizenship, global free flow of people, global commitments.
We want to surge ahead in all these areas because we believe that all areas of life are increasingly interdependent - to advance rapidly in any one area, we must advance vigorously in all areas.
We want to spread a new triumphant spirit - an Optimism free of guilt, free of shame, free of self-denial. We want to spread the awareness that we are at the dawn of a beautiful New Age. There is a new Hope in the world.

We UpWingers do not belong to any political parties - we do not run for office, we do not seek power. We are a long-range movement with two principal functions:

First. We are catalysts. We want to inform, stimulate, uplift.
Second. We are activists. We want to launch projects to achieve our goals.

We UpWingers are resigned to nothing. We consider no human problems irreversible - no goals unattain-able.
For the first time in history we have the ability, the resources, the genius to resolve ALL our age-old problems. Attain ALL our boldest visions.

We need a new set of priorities, intelligent planning, commitment, vision. With these we can now accom-plish anything.
