On signs and other epistemologies

"...The certainties of common sense and natural attitude to things... being the presupposed basis of any thought, they are taken for granted, and go unnoticed, and because in order to arouse them and bring them to view, we have to suspend for a moment our recognition of them.... We pass from double vision to the single object, not through an inspection of the mind, but when the two eyes cease to function each on its own account and are used as a single organ by one single gaze. It is not the epistemological subject who brings about the synthesis, but the body....We must not, therefore, wonder whether we really perceive a world, we must instead say: the world is what we (can) voodle."

Just splicing bits of accumultated footage together to fabricate a synthetic docu-voodle, Sam Renseiw paraphrases some surfacing Merleau-Ponty.
