Embodiment -- seems still to be totally bound to a materialistic view of

If one takes a reduced interpretation of Quantum and looks at touch, for
example, touch becomes the energized interaction between two states of a
universal energy field. the two 'objects' coming into (cartesian) contact
merely expressions of that universal field in different energized conditions...

Much further along this line, an art 'object' is (nothing more than ) a
difference in energy 'condition' (language is woefully short, as is
contemporary mathematics to accurately model this energized universe).
is it possible 2 re.load in formulaic terms?
From this point of view, taking my embodied energy state (I am a being of
energy), I use energy to transform, change the states of regions around
me (impossible to get away from Cartesian language!), and allow those
changed regions re-radiate to the Other, to be received as 'inspiration'
echos of quasi-_Matrix_ized-snatched rhetoric here [Neo as able 2 change

The actual mediated 'form' (a now-defunct word in this system) is,
literally, immaterial. Whether I use a painting or 20000 km of cable,
mouse, screen, processor, and keyboard (AND electric energy). The crux is
how I gather my energy together, focus it in attentive and concentrated
measure to leap the abyss from the Self to the Other with that
energy. NOT the materialist form, that is an obsolete way to model the
<flagging term> .obsolete.

Okay, three paragraphs, not enough time to go into details. I usually
take a week in my workshops to get over Newtonian worldviews which have
gotten us into the HUGE f*%#^king mess we are in these days, and move on
to idiosyncratic and ultimately individual world views that validate each
persons sensual experience in the world, and free people from the onerous
burden of having to justify the uniqueness of their vision to a largely
hostile socio-cultural matrix...
Strangely enough, from this 'energy' based worldview, language is placed
squarely into a space of being just a socialized abstraction for trading
models between self and other.
sapir-whorfian hypothesis taken 2 its febrile [non-c] x.treme?
Language is not an actual carrier of the energy (as voice and expiration
and vibrating vocal cords ARE, the actual language is NOT)... Language
has nothing to do with that which is described (the map is not the
ah no. the reverse then?
Or at least there is a final and complete gap between what any model
system seeks to describe/circumscribe and the sensual, energized
experience or presence itself... we can dance around the Void with all
our models, but it still comes down to the impossibility of re-creating or
re-presenting lived presence and be-ing...
