A Modest Example of the Dwindling Forces of Cognition Under Late Capitalism
The Vanity Press breaks it down:
Well, you see, that would be because just shortly after the story broke she was not covert anymore because just shortly after the story broke her cover was blown. And once your cover is blown, it's blown for good.
So, before the story broke her cover was not blown and she did not appear in any Vanity Fair articles. When the story broke, it blew her cover. And then after the story broke, her cover stayed blown, Vanity Fair article or not. That's what we call linear time. I'm sure you can all think of examples from your own life.
The problem with this argument being the assumption that we are still living in linear time. As opposed to inhabiting some Philip K. Dickian scrambled-egg simulacrum thereof, which would actually be my best guess, and worst fear.
