تئوژِنی  

داستان خارق العاده ی خدایان و هیولاهایی که از اعماق " خائوس" آغازین بیرون می آیند درهم می تنند ودرکشاکشی پرخروش و هم نوع خارانه در هم می آمیزند تا بنیان گذار نظمی نو پدید باشند، کی به پایان می رسد؟ جهان دقیقا در چه زمانی از مرحله ی جنینی عبور می کند و همچون جهانی از پیش آفریده شده و شکل یافته، خود می نمایاند ؟

  باززایی مداوم مفهوم بشر و شوندِ ظاهرا بی پایان آن تحت تاثیر نیروهای غول آسای جامعه صنعتی که به شکلی روز افزون مرزِ میان ِانسان و ماشین را مختل می کند، برای انسان ِنخستین تصور ناپذیر بود.  انسانی که در لحظه لحظه زندگی اش با ماشین آلاتی غریبه و مصنوع آمیخته می شود، از طریق شبکه ها به لذت و کامکاری می رسد و ساختار زیستی اش را با جراحی های گوناگون و پیوند اعضا دگرگون می سازد، همان سایبورگ مدرن، از آن جهت که افسانه های جهان زایی ِ انسانِ نخستین ، کار آفرینش را تمام شده می انگارند، نقطه پایانی است بر این افسانه ها و هم نقطه آغازیست دوباره. زندگی سایبورگ های مدرن سراسرجهان زایی است. داستان آفرینش جهانی منظم از دل "خائوس" برای انسان معاصر نه کنشی به انجام رسیده که مجموعه ای از رویداد های روزمره است. 

 نوسان مداوم بین بن مایه زیستی و مصنوع صنعتی، که خود جهت دور کردن ِانسان از " وضعیت طبیعی " بوجود آمده است، به شکلی تناقض آمیز انسان ِمعاصر را حتی بیش از همتای باستانی اش در تماس با " خائوس " آغازین نگاه داشته است. با این حال او یک توانایی بنیادین را از دست داده است: زبانی که بتواند این کشاکش را، چنان که در اشعار یونان باستان یا حتی الواح سومری  دیده می شود بیان کند، برای همیشه مرده است. جایگزیده  شدن زبان ِ بی روح علم و تکنیک، سایبورگ ِمعاصر را از تماسی شاعرانه و هستی شناسانه با مبادی ِوجودی اش محروم ساخته است و منجر به تلاشی سخت کوشانه، البته نه چندان امیدوارانه، در راستای جایگزینی آن با تکه پاره هایی برگرفته از زندگی ِروزمره شده که شاخه ای مهم از جریان هنر مدرن را شکل داده و تا به امروز ادامه دارد: آفرینش هنری نقطه پیوند سایبورگ زبان زودوده با همان "خائوسی "است که از بیان آن از طریق اشکال متعارف زبانی بدورافتاده است . 

فراتر از این بن بست زبان ِنمادین،  همچنان درهم تنیده ای از گوشت و عصب قرار دارد، که به رغم تمام دستگاه های اندازه گیری ای که به اکناف ِوجودش فرو رفته، هنوز هوش و حواس اش را به کلی ازدست نداده است . 

سایبورگ های امروزی هم می توانند حس کنند و بویژه گاهی خطر کرده به چشم هایشان اعتماد کنند و ببینند. اگر تئوژنی ِامروزی را نمی توان با دال های تهی شده ی نمادین روایت کرد شاید بتوان آن را به نحوی در جهان ِمحرک های حسی، آن محدوده ی تثبیت ناپذیر و دشوار یاب که در میان ِدال زبانی و   مابه ازای مادی اش وجود دارد، بازیافت.  حالا که نمی شود هومر را آنلاین خواند شاید بشود بخشی از آن حساسیت نخستین را از خلال ِتصاویر ِنقاشي  هدفون به گوش برکشید .

Theogeny
When does the fantastic story of gods and Titans which emerge from the depths of the primordial “Chaos” , intermingling and merging in a noisy cannibalistic struggle to invent a new order end? When exactly does the world pass its embryonic stage and appear as a pre-created and preformed world?
The incessant re-production of humanity’s meaning and its apparently endless becoming under the influence of gigantic forces of the industrial society which increasingly blur the border between human and machine was unimaginable to primitive humanity’s mind. A human who is continuously attached to intrusive manufactured machines, who enjoys through networks and his biological structure is reinvented through different surgeries and transplantations, the modern cyborg, is an end to the myths of the Theogeny in so far as they consider the mission of creation already accomplished but in another sense, it’s another beginning: The life of modern Cyborgs is all Theogeny. For them, The story of creation, emergence of an ordered world from the ”Chaos” , is not something of the past but their everyday life.
The continuous fluctuation between bio-matter and industrial product, which is itself initiated to rescue humanity from the “natural condition” , paradoxically has kept the modern man close to the primordial “Chaos” , even closer than its great grandfathers. Nevertheless, he has lost an important ability. The language which can narrate this struggle, like the language which is seen in the ancient Greek texts and Sumerian tablets, is died forever. Its replacement by the soulless language of science and technique has deprived the contemporary Cyborg of a poetical and ontological communication with its archaic origins but also has empowered a fierce, but hopeless, attempt to replace that lost ability with fragments of daily life put together through the sensibility of modern Art : Artistic creation is the point of connection for the languageless  Cyborg and that primordial “Chaos” which he can no more describe by conventional means. 
Beyond this crisis of the symbolic language, Still there lays a neuro-muscular complex which despite of all the measurement apparati which are stuck in him, hasn’t yet completely gone out of his senses.
Even the Modern Cyborgs can feel and specially take some risk, trust their eyes and see. If it’s not possible to narrate an up to date Theogeny by overused and eroded linguistic signifiers, may be one can reinvent it in the realm of sense-certainty, That unstable and difficult zone between the signifier and its material equivalent. Now that we can’t read Homer online anymore, may be one can save something of that primordial sensitivity through the images of a painter who has a headphone stuck in his ears.

This is an overview of Tehran

Overview and History

Tehran is the capital of Iran and the largest city in the Middle East, with a population of fifteen million people living under the peaks of the Alborz mountain range.

Although archaeological evidence places human activity around Tehran back into the years 6000BC, the city was not mentioned in any writings until much later, in the thirteenth century. It's a relatively new city by Iranian standards.

But Tehran was a well-known village in the ninth century. It grew rapidly when its neighboring city, Rhages, was destroyed by Mongolian raiders. Many people fled to Tehran.

In the seventeenth century Tehran became home to the rulers of the Safavid Dynasty. This is the period when the wall around the city was first constructed. Tehran became the capital of Iran in 1795 and amazingly fast growth followed over the next two hundred years.

The recent history of Tehran saw construction of apartment complexes and wide avenues in place of the old Persian gardens, to the detriment of the city's cultural history.

The city at present is laid out in two general parts. Northern Tehran is more cosmopolitan and expensive, southern Tehran is cheaper and gets the name "downtown."

Getting There

Mehrabad airport is the original one which is currently in the process of being replaced by Imam Khomeini International Airport. The new one is farther away from the city but it now receives all the international traffic, so allow an extra hour to get there or back.

Transportation

Tehran driving can be a wild free-for-all like some South American cities, so get ready for shared taxis, confusing bus routes and a brand new shiny metro system to make it all better. To be fair, there is a great highway system here.

The metro has four lines, tickets cost 2000IR, and they have segregated cars. The women-only carriages are the last two at the end, FYI.

Taxis come in two flavors, shared and private. Private taxis are more expensive but easier to manage for the visiting traveler. Tehran has a mean rush hour starting at seven AM and lasting until 8PM in its evening version. Solution? Motorcycle taxis! They cut through the traffic and any spare nerves you might have left.

People and Culture

More than sixty percent of Tehranis were born outside of the city, making it as ethnically and linguistically diverse as the country itself. Tehran is the most secular and liberal city in Iran and as such it attracts students from all over the country.

Things to do, Recommendations

Take the metro to the Tehran Bazaar at the stop "Panzda Gordad". There you can find anything and everything -- shoes, clothes, food, gold, machines and more. Just for the sight of it alone you should take a trip there.

If you like being outside, go to Darband and drink tea in a traditional setting. Tehranis love a good picnic and there are plenty of parks to enjoy. Try Mellat park on a friday (fridays are public holidays), or maybe Park Daneshjou, Saaii or Jamshidieh.

Remember to go upstairs and have a look around, always always always! The Azadi Tower should fit the bill; it was constructed to commemorate the 2500th anniversary of the Persian Empire.

Tehran is also full of museums such as:

the Contemporary Art Museum

the Abghine Musuem (glass works)

the 19th century Golestan Royal Palace museum

the museum of carpets (!!!)

Reza Abbasi Museum of extraordinary miniatures

and most stunning of all,

the Crown Jewels Museum which holds the largest pink diamond in the world and many other jaw-dropping jewels.
