If this abstract is accepted I kindly ask that you publish it under the CC 0 license. A license that is radically open. That surrenders a work without a single fetter or restriction into the public domain forever. I say radical but it is only so to those in thrall to attribution, such as the scholars and researchers who toil under its sprawling yoke. As serfs they are sent to the fields at first light.

They believe that the acknowledgment of their written works will bring them self worth. Sadly nothing could be less true. As they publish so they perish.
I kindly ask for a special accommodation should this presentation be accepted: that you allow for it to be presented by no-one. That there be no I associated with this work. No sexuality, no race, no gender, no creed, no tribe, no flag, no crest, no place that attribution might find some purchase. It would rather be presented in silence as a sequence of slides transitioning themselves. It this way it would seek to challenge and discomfit its audience. Gently enjoining them to question those sureties they hold. That you hold. For whatever you now hold will eventually have hold of you. To whit this presentation will kindly ask that you put yourself in doubt. In question. Such as: what is my worth? And from whence does it derive
