Interfaces and Transition Zones––Where Stories Collide
"The soul of man with all the streams of pure living water
seems to dwell in the fascia of his body."
[One way to translate from sexism to inclusion:
My soul, with all the streams of pure living wate, seems to dwell in my fascia.]
Édourard Glissant proposes that rhizome is better metaphor than root. It is curious how the connective tissue of our flesh has so similar appearance. It als resembles astronomers' pictures of the early universe.
What is connective tissue? A meeting point of realms, a junction, a transition zone.
It always involves a gap. This is what the (-) of Ortho-Bionomy is what Pauls intended it to represent. It is the (-) that says "poetics."
The purpose of connective tissue is to connect.
It is fractal, has symmmetry of scale.
Of same nature as what is usually called connective tissue: body schema, mucus, blood, nerves, micorhiza, mycelia
The vision is for Ongoingness; Life continuing on . . . .

Now, more than ever . . . our place in the universe and the place of the universe in us, is proving to be one of active relationship. That is more than a scientist's credo. The separateness of our lives is a sham. Physics, mathematics, music, painting, my love for you, my work, the star-dust of my body, the spirit that impels it, my politics, clocks diurnal, time perpetual, the roll, rough, tender, swamping, liberating, breathing, moving, thinking nature, human nature and the cosmos are patterned together.
