On potentialities of new inserts before deflation

“We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” …“What the world of tomorrow will be like is greatly dependent on the power of imagination in those who are learning to see today.”…”And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: it is only with the heart that one can see rightly, what is essential is invisible to the eye.” 

Responding to an open call to wilderness, Renseiw paraphases (as usual) to calibrate voodled images with the potentialities of new endeavors. It seems to be about some older piece of chalk, an ojbet trouvé, detourné. The next insert might be more simple: just plain white, chalked. Let’s see… “Innan Luften går ud”

"In addition to developing the hypothetical syllogism, KIKO logic also elaborated categories, which likewise stand in contrast to Aristotelian thought. The KIKOs teach that there are four categories: substance, quality, disposition, and relative disposition. Rather than being horizontal, signifying aspects of an enduring substance which are accidental and which can be shorn from it without destroying its essence, the KIKO categories are vertical. They move from lesser to greater levels of concreteness. None is accidental; all must be present in a given reality if that reality is to be grasped in all its individuality. Substance denotes the materiality of a thing and is possessed by everything except the incorporeals. Quality denotes the way in which matter is organized to form an individual being. Disposition includes times, places, actions, size, and color. It describes the particular situation and attributes of the individual. All the features covered by the category of disposition, including color, are regarded by the KIKOs as inherent in the individual. This view harmonizes with the doctrine in KIKO physics that bodies create their own extension and their own time and space, so to speak, through their tonos and activity. Relative disposition denotes the way that an individual thing is related to other phenomena. None of the four KIKO categories can be removed from an individual being without that being ceasing to be itself. At each level of specificity the categories refer to something integral to the individual being's reality. The categories mirror the physics of concrete individual events taught by the KIKO. Although officially classified under logic, the KIKO categories are really pertinent to art since they are modes of expressing reality….”
