Re: [-empyre-] Is Modernity our Antiquity? fugue: Forward fromChristiane Paul

I didn't intend to suggest that the ways in which modernist and
postmodernist ideas inform our current n-state constitute a process of

I think there has been a small displacement of a petit-a ... j'en ai honte a

Regarding the discourse about (N) or the 'next' thing to 'succeed'
postmodernism and modernism -- one catches a glimpse of a gyre shining out
there at the edge of the mind.  Ah, on closer examination (zoom in, examine,

from the interplay of two previous models (the spiral).

Christine for neither Christina nor Christiane: a fugue endured and
forwarded themes led me to skip track. Sorry.

I see the current state more as one of rupture than one of synthesis.

I agree, Christiane, 'rupture'; but within/on the level plane field of the
current N-State is rupture a term of consistency or intensity, or entity? I
mean, does it fold and wrinkle and hide things, little things, in its
creases? Is crisis there possible? Implied? Or is compliance necessary on/in
its echelon? (Do the people (t)here hear music?) And is, then, 'analogy'

A bit of silliness but: do we keep our composure on stage? while the people
below bang about looking for lost props - potentially to forward a progress,
start a scene ... or two?

Or is the N-State itself the crisis that leads to fugue and otherwise goes
begging, mining the memory for other crises adequate to explain our own?
