**Subject:** courtship displays of the manifolds:

**Date:** Mon, 12 May 2008 15:37:25 -0400 (EDT)

courtship displays of the manifolds: coagulation or cohesion of elements, fold-catastrophic jumps, convulsions, collocations, substructural part-objects, articulations; bendings, affine and other morphological transformations. from one end of the spectrum, the schrodinger cat paradox resolves as leakage, what i'd term abjection, in relation to container and thinging contained; from the other, it makes no difference since particles _jump,_ not to mention coordinations at distances, etc. it's almost code, codons. it's almost discrete, symbolic. it breaks down only where the continuum appears, continuity at the periphery. another tactic, that of binary particle, that of continuous wave. or does the wave become discrete or broth, roiled. modes of string vibrations. think of dimensional collapse as the real. think of this as _metaphor-engine,_ nothing more, swamped by ignorance. think of mathesis among continuums and anything mapped where, surreal or other numbers, integers; are natural numbers _natural_? thinned line or stepping among infinitesimals. courtship displays of the manifolds: http://www.alansondheim.org/brokenwarp.mp4 (and see http://www.alansondheim.org/crisisgirlboy.mov if you haven't)
