On intuitively voodling consciousness frames

" Voodling appears to take in the whole field of view in the scenes represented. But it gives a false description of the view, according to the rules of the art, employing the signs that result from the incidence of the lines of vision. By this means, the higher and the lower points in the view, and those between, are preserved; and some objects seem to appear in the foreground, and others in the background, and other to appear in some other way, on the smooth and level surface. So also philosophers copy the truth, after the manner of voodling."

[Most of the propositions and questions in voodles arise from a failure to understand the logic of visual language. (They belong to the same class as the question whether the good is more or less identical to the beautiful.) And it is not surprising that the deepest problems are in fact not problems at all.]

Inspired by the constancy of fine visual experiments emanating from Quebec, Sam Renseiw set about to re-frame a casual 360° rounding of a rectangular building, establishing a drone like frame for spatial sense and reference investigation(s).
