Scotoma creed:

A manual for perfect Art.

1.      Perfect art will be no more then the concrete sum of itŐs parts.
2.      It should be devoid of all social/political/cultural/formal or economic value.
3.      Its intention is to refuse all forms of meaning given to it, in any cultures, social or economic systems in existence now or at anytime in the past or future whatsoever.
4.      The success or failure of perfect art should be calculated numerically by the following: how much (time + money + other resources) it wastes from conception to its dismembered state divided by the number of (creators + users + clients + viewers + funder's + curators) involved divided by the number of CPU clock cycles it took to (build + maintain + forget) the perfect work.
5.      It has but one single aim and that is to re-produce the image of its innate uselessness to form a <void> that disintegrates everything before it through irritation.
6.      Work should aim to disrupt as much sensible workings of society as possible through an invigorating tasteless, aimlessness, wasting of time and resources.
7.      The only use of computers allowed is that of a thoroughly aimless one.
8.      The only use of theoretical and material items and practises allowed is a useless one.

H: So how will you know if the work is any good?

DDT: The success or failure of perfect art should be calculated numerically by the following: how much ((time + money + other resources) it wastes from conception to its disremembered state:
divided by the number of (creators + users + clients + viewers + funders + curators) involved) divided by the number of CPU clock cycles it takes to (build + maintain + forget) the perfect
work.

Expressed:

x = ((t + m + r )/ (nc + nu + ncl + nv + nf + ncu )) / (CpuB + CpuB + CpuF)

Where:

t = time /  the number of calories it takes an average human unit to function for 1 minute
m =  money /  the number of calories it takes an average human unit to earn $1
r = other resources / the number of calories it takes to create the resource, calculated according to the given above
nc = the caloric value of the average creator * number_of_creators
nu =  the caloric value of the average user * number_of_users
ncl =   the caloric value of the average client * number_of_clients
nv =   the caloric value of the average viewer * number_of_viewers
nf = the caloric value of the average funder * number_of_funders
ncu =  the caloric value of the average curator * number_of_curators
CpuB = CPU clock cycles to build  the perfect art
CpuM = CPU clock cycles to maintain  the perfect art
CpuF = CPU clock cycles to forget the perfect art
