Re: [-empyre-] multi-perspectival / cultural hegemony of space

Christina, this is what Polyani calls tacit knowledge, which is always
gained through familiarity. The body is a supple thing. What I was
referrencing was the embedded body in its fullness, along the lines of
Merleau-Ponty for example (or Alphonso Lingis - both phenomenologists
concerned with the situated self). The same thing - taciticity - happens
even in reading a novel, when the world of the novel at first appears
unfamiliar (and if scifi, even with new language, neologisms), and then
over time and reading, becomes almost a second home.
