“Cells are living images other images are passing through.”
j/j hastain, Priest/ess 4
“The problem is not so much a remnant of the original author, but the present need to have images be diaphanous. To see thru layers means to come upon a “generative” action of allegory so that figuration of the poem keeps on keeping ON, much like entering one room in a palace to see all the rooms by virtue of a mastered architecture. A travel thru all space and time instantaneously, the magically endowed master of the first architecture would have conjured.”
