Subject: Re: [D-G] maths.


it may not help, but thank you. i am learning and for now i read with 
great interest.

I do an anthropologist by choice and inside the conversations of power. 
The maths is very interesting to me, it creates a visual language. I can 
see the things as well as understand them as knowledge. not about rights 
and wrongs, instead growing a place to think differently, to say 
differences, to deterritorilise, to seek assemblages, machines, 
reinvent. what is subjectivity. Can language deal with that, can it do 
it without losing the masses or at least a thing to grasp

strange examples to me things i don't use come out on this list, and 
when they connect, when i can see those couplings, movements then i can 
speak it to you in another framework too.

Carnival, J'Ouvert, experience, the stuff of Walter Benjamin, the 
Caribbean, change, inside and outside together i dont yet understand how 
to bring it all into one idea. There is a lot i want to ask.

listenin now though.
