Whats the term for your collection of plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery?
The violence of the leftist mob pressing in on the human individual. A psychobiological continuum. The nail that sticks out shall be hammered down. Flip it, the inchoate mob directed by cunning Lenin.Catalog's funnel idea presents to me as the left essentially circling the drain of the right.
Catalog's funnel idea presents to me as the left essentially circling the drain of the right.
regarding the "flow" between the drain and the wide mob, i see it more in terms of different dimensions: flat circular plates at one end, nails at the other. i'm trying to say that the left and the right are qualitatively different ways of thinking, being, they are connected but they are not about different views on a position, for example. they are different modes of being. one is flattened out and getting wider and thinner, reaching new places on the horizontal. the other is a nail cutting through into something else on the vertical.The violence of the leftist mob pressing in on the human individual.

I a,ways think of miles and Coltrane as an archetypal dyad with miles on a horizontal axis and Coltrane on a vertical. Coltrane trying to bust through the ceiling and transcend, miles exploring the territory
so in this same schema, joyce is like miles, "exploring the territory", literally walking the city and feeling it out, going into all the nooks and crannies of it (and his mind).
whereas beckett is like, fuck that, i'll sit in this room and look at one cloud and two people in the distance and it will all come to me that way - not so much busting through the ceiling as diving down into hell?
Sort of similar to this diagramming of Dante's hell circlesi smoked some weed again last night and was up til 3 writing notes into my phone.
the main thought i had was around "the left" versus "the right". As in "left wing" and "right wing", politically, culturally.
Left vs right is not like 2 sides of a circle and equal in parts.
Left is more like a wide end of funnel into narrow end of funnel, which is the right.
There's more and more left, till it flattens again. it becomes 2d.
2d into 3d into what next?
Back to 2 or up to 4?
White people at a black lives matter protest are the flat part of the circle. Stealing money from the system is a narrow part of the funnel.
It's all connected in flow.
You could write this like finnegans wake.
The water flow from circle to funnel.
I drew it a few times
added some annotations to try to emphasise the changing dimensions between flat circle on one end and point of a line on the other
