February 23, 2016 - The collapse of MinXus in 2014 has gone without commentary, and certainly many were relieved when it passed. Now, the circulation of (very fine) “replica” MinXus relics by Rebecca Guyver (seen in this posting) as well as postings by Moan Lisa of authentic MinXus and Anti-MinXus relics uggests the possibility of a Post-MinXus condition.

Given the original conditions of MinXus-Lynxus, a MinXus Revival, Neo-MinXus or Post-MinXus are an impossibility. The core definition is “MinXus is the opposite of Trashpo.” Therefore, MinXus will exist as long as there is Trashpo. This work by Rebecca Guyver suggests a MinXus-Trashpo synthesis, but such a unification of opposites is impossible. This work by Rebecca Guyver also suggests the duality and simultaneity of MinXus and Trashpo.
