### The Antinomy of Digital Reason ###
+ On the one hand, neoliberal society is organized spatially rather than temporally: it is simultaneous rather than sequential.
+ On the other hand, neoliberal society is organized acoustically rather than visually: we can hear everything at once, but not see everything at once.
+ But how can these both be true?
+ Sound comes to us from every direction at once...
+ ... but sound happens in time, and it necessarily *takes time*.
+ Rather than thinking of time as internal (Bergsonian duration) we need to apprehend it as a force of exteriority.
+ Sound gives us the time that we need to encompass and grasp spatial simultaneity.
