If according the Freud, the development of the organism is molded by the extensive correlation between the earth and the sun, then what are the implications of this relation for terrestrial thought? For it seems that the earth's conservative-dissipative correlation with the sun has entrenched its traces in thought as a dominant model for the economy, topology and dynamism of life. This is not just because a major part of formations on the planet (including all human endeavours) are directly contingent upon the sun, but also because the sun's exorbitant exteriority ingrains a conservative image of exteriority in thought. Such exorbitant exteriority can only be bound as an affordable dissipative tendency which rigidly limits the image of exteriority and in doing so, restricts all other possible ways of binding exteriority. The energetic sun-earth axis has become a burdening chain for the terrestrial image of thought insofar as it constitutes the exclusivist model of death and dissipation which restricts the scope of thought in regard to its own death. The question, to this extent, is how to break the hegemonic model of the sun in regard to death and exteriority without submitting to another star, another horizon or even investing in the truth of extinction whose exorbitance leads to the restrictions reminiscent of those imposed by solar excess. - Reza Negarestani, the speculative turn p.200

120bpm does more than move the dance floor; this repetition, this constant meditation on these subjects asks for one thing: we want the Sun back.
Introduction

[RARE EARTH SCULPTUTRES] - Neodymium

During the later part of the 18th Century amidst the Industrial Revolution, developments in the coal and iron industries ended thousands of years worship of the sun. At this time Modern Capitalism began its two hundred year insurrection against the creator of all life on earth. When the coal and iron industries diminished during 1900’s the earth’s rebellion against its creator was far from over. New industries in crude oil and rare metals arose to continue the perpetual drilling, digging and unearthing of the rebel energy sources.

The Small Maitreya Solar Cross is both a sacred and ancient symbol of adornment to the sun’s immense power and to bespoke, high-end products of consumer culture which point their middle finger at the sky. At its retail price of £682.50 it is a shrine to the precious metals that lay within the earth’s crust. The bearded dragon which sits next to the Solar Cross presents another paradox. She basks underneath a neodymium lamp in captivity whilst her wild relatives are threatened in their natural habitat due to global warming.

120bpm does more than move the dance floor; this repetition, this constant meditation on these subjects asks for one thing: we want the Sun back.
