Image Speed Intelligence



[a contribution for For Machine Use Only]

There is no proper thinking of images apart from their own machinic nature. If machines are using images, and more and more intelligently, it is because image is itself a machine. The use of images by intelligent machines is a manifest reflection of the machinic intelligence of images. What is this intelligence? It is that by which images work, i.e. actively possess energy (en + ergon), sufficient force to possess intelligence (in both senses). The energetic work of the image is generally intelligible in terms of the miraculous speed by which image is essentially something always arriving ahead of itself—already (t)here in advance of whatever medium is transmitting it. Image-speed is the bi-locative instantaneity wherein an image is perceived only through the image auto-formed in the seer, so that every image is like a projection of a perfect copy of itself. Materially, images travel at lightspeed, but image itself is faster. This ineffable speed of the image is of a piece with its being the interface between mind and matter, soul and body. As Augustine explains in his study of the three kinds of vision (intellectual, imaginative, corporeal), “although we first see a body which we had not seen before, and from that moment its image begins to be in our spirit, by which we can remember it when it is no longer there in front of us, still it is not the body that makes its own image in the spirit, but the spirit itself which makes in itself with a wonderful swiftness that is ineffably far from the slowness of bodies; so no sooner is the body seen by the eyes than its image is formed without the slightest interval of time in the spirit of the person seeing.”[i] Now a question to consider is how the use of images will affect the development of machine intelligence with respect to the fourfold teloi of mind-speed: “Mind stopped, is God. Mind working, is man. Mind slowed down, is mast [saint, lit. ‘intoxicated’]. Mind working fast, is mad.”[ii] Will the increasingly intelligent machine use of images tend to manifest itself according to the omniscient stopped mind of divinity, the preoccupied working mind of man, the supernatural slowed mind of the saint (or superhuman), or the insane fast mind of the madman? Will using images intelligently make machines more divine, more human, more saintly, or more insane? Which is the mode of intelligence most proper to the speed of image itself? How might art’s level of attunement to this speed influence the inhuman future of the image? There is a story about the 18th-century Sufi poet Bulleh Shah which provides a fitting initial reference point for musing over these questions. It concerns the power of the line, perhaps the most pervasive type of image and that which best demonstrates the subtle, neither-there-nor-not-there being of image in general. “[A]s a child he was very backward. By the time the other children had mastered the Arabic alphabet, he hadn't learned the first letter. His parents took him away from school and left him to himself. He ran away to the desert or jungle . . . and spent his whole time in trying to understand the meaning of this single letter ‘a’ which also stands for the number ‘one’. After twenty-five years he returned to his childhood school and took his place in the class he had left. The same teacher, an old man now, asked him what he wanted. He said he had come for his second lesson. To humour this madman the teacher asked him to write his first lesson on the blackboard. He did so; and the whole wall split in two.”[iii] I look forward to (not) seeing what art will be when it slows to the speed of Bulleh Shah, when machines/humans learn to work at image speed intelligence.
