I saw Phil Spencer fart about in the room where I ran in fear from my first pair of glasses and ripped my gum open on the corner of a desk even now as an adult my front teeth are still crooked. A continuum can imply some sort of progression, but it may be better to think of these responses as simply different, if even that.

The poets throughou Silence This is a meditation.

In some ways, looking at that old house of mine, I think I relived a kind of childhood optimism I have not experienced in almost two decades. The lonely house in the woods with the lit lamp is more than what it’s physical constituents point towards. Quotes from The Poetics of Space.

Reveries of the places of his childhood — the house he lived in.

In this charming and surprisingly readable text, the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard talks about the intersection between poetry, imagination, and buildings — and does it in such a way that makes you want to constantly scope your surroundings for hidden meaning. Bachelard was something of a polymath who began his career as a postman, taught himself physics and chemistry, and then became a philosophy professor at the Sorbonne.

All I can say as a layman, is that this book has helped me dismantle the topology of quite a few poems over the years. Phenomenology, on the other hand, appears to take a person’s response to a given situation and follow that response to all its connected manifestations.

I’ve failed to explain Bachelard to so many people by now that I should know better.

So far, the major insight seems to be that in so far as we grow up in similar environments, we will have similar internal landscapes–and thus be susceptible to similar images. Maybe they’re not mutually exclusive. To understand silence, to understand space is to understand the emergent infinite plane.

espacii Rania rated it really liked it. These initiators and signifiers are universally ordinary. Heidegger is not mentioned. It does not stand out, it is not bordered by nothingness: I highly recommend this great book.
