P-I-A Salon
$5 per creation
Reward
This Salon tier gives its Patrons basic access to the Philosophical Intelligence Agency's community, event dates, resources, and exclusive materials. It's the semi-public branch of this otherwise incognito, private think-tank.

This is also access to its multimedia atmosphere, guided by Daemian Garett, Director of the P-I-A, which includes the following (each of which can be subscribed to on its own tier, or, all at once).

  • music - mostly psy lounge, d&b, dub, soft house, atmospheric breaks
  • visual artworks - drawings and electronic remixes of them
  • podcasts - dialogs with other philosopher-artists
  • recitations - audio versions of texts (eg blog posts)
  • fiction - one-page stories
  • monograms - such as Electronic Phenomenology
  • P-I-A White Papers - the current investigation: the viability of a Livelihood Economy
  • ways to connect - with me and the Audience community.

Daemian's goals are philosophical investigations and designing philosophical experiences for the Audience Community. 

This list of benefits also serves as the 'All benefits of the basic Salon tier' listed in the benefits of all other tiers.
Reader Support for Blog Posts + Audios
$10 per creation

For readers enjoying my blog posts, who want to encourage me, and hear me read the posts.

This tier receives access to an audio version of the full text read by the author. The intended/best textual experience for my posts is on www.daemiangarett.com.
P-I-A White Papers
$15 per creation
Reward
Periodic exclusive White Papers from The Philosophical Intelligence Agency, by Director Daemian Garett and guest collaborators.

  • The current one in progress (the first of this tier series) is an investigation into the idea of a 'Livelihood Economy' based upon a status quo of mass social entrepreneurship with more communalism built into the financial system.

Current (newest) White Papers are not shared with the P-I-A Salon community or the public immediately. Patrons of this tier can access each new Paper 48 hours early. Usually Papers are completed on a monthly to quarterly basis.

In-between release dates, Patrons of this tier are welcome in exclusive calls about the topic of the current Paper and the next one slated. All Patrons can read past White Papers.

NOTICE: OF PROCEDURE: An unpaid post containing the newest White Paper will be published to Patrons of this tier. The Paper will be published to the whole community 2 days afterward as a paid post.
Read ELECTRONIC PHENOMENOLOGY (2005)
$20 per creation
Reward
The work's summary:

Electronic Phenomenology is an experimental fusion of Phenomenology with media studies, a hybrid which is concerned specifically with electronic modes of contemporary media. In order to access the most crucial questions about electronic media, analysis is focused upon the experiential and ontological aspects of media. the concept of the 'medialogical reduction' (adapted from Phenomenology) is applied to foreground the 'oscillatory dynamics' of electricality (instead of 'digitality'); and the new method of exposing 'electronic tropes' is also introduced. The prospect of including analyses of 'mystic media' throughout history is also ventured in coordination with the foregrounding of electronic media's 'pharmakological' nature, and these are discussed in relation to a general revival of the understanding of ancient techne. Electronic Phenomenology opposes ongoing technological determinism(s) through renewed attention upon the lived dimension, hence the truth, of electronic technicity.
