Home Becomes Indistinct When I Walk

Last post I think. This is a site for note talking rather than reading, and I have a lot of notes to take. Does not seem the place to do it.

Leave with an image not even half formed and a thought I can’t work properly into words for a title.

End at the start of it all.

Not sure if that means I will write more formaly and fully somewhere else or I just don’t need to use words in the same way.

I was trying to get a wider shot of the woods, my sight was really limited and constricted. The wood was filled with birds. Noise and movement made me less dependant on sight to see the extent of it and reach its edges.

non erit nisi in animo (Places That Exist Only In Mind)

Mirror Language

“any ymage of or figure in a mans ymagynation”

“If that her breath will mist or stain the stone (looking glass)/ Why then she lives”

Looking at Laban in terms of older philosophical theories looks straight forward in terms of a plan.

I can’t get it out of my mind to book a holiday in another subject that does not seem to be an easy fit in anything other than my mind.

Principum specula, a self help genre known as the mirror of princes.

When I look at past/ present issues in history I generally translate from my understanding of the retrospective nature of medieval historical documents. I suppose as with Laban it focuses my mind on my educational past. It seems a strech to far, so keep it at the back of my mind and throw in the wider subject as a wild card.

See what it does and if it survives still breathing at the end. Start here.

N.M. Frelick, The Mirror in Medieval and Early Modern Culture.

I think I have a new subject, (Things To Do While Waiting For A Number 27 Bus) a means of exploring it  and a two pencil solution.

Not attempting to work out but wondering if this will prove to be the methodological basis for a future return to wild men and man like apes.

Eriugena (All Things Find Their Place In Art)

Aliud est enim quod continet er aliud contintetur

What contains is contained

Corpra continentur locis suis; aliud igtur est corpus et aliud lucus

Bodies are contianed in their places, therefore place is not a body( body belongs in the category of quantity, whereas definition is that of place)

Locus omnis quia diffinitio est

Place is definition

Si enim diffinitio omnis in disciplina est et omnis disciplina in animo nexessario locus omnis, quia diffinitio est, non alibi nisi in animo ert

Definition exists in art and every art in mind

non erit nisi in animo

Place exists only in mind

This Week I will Not Be Reading

Eyjolfur Kjalar Emilsson, Plotinus On Sense Perception A Philosophical Study.

Not having much luck reading around this subject. I have a copy of a text in German I cannot read a thesis yet to be written and one on Laban that is under some form of academic embargo (not sure what that is but I suspect it means it’s about to be published).

I thought I might work forwards and backwards at the same time, start in the 20th century and the 9th century.

Patience would appear to be required here. I will have to ease myself with being nothing for the moment.
