Hi Stamatia and all,
I got interested in researching peaking rhythms as part of research on
carbon PPM concentrations in the atmosphere and how to visualize it.
In connection with this notion of intrinsic singularity , following
Bernard Cache, I started to wonder about
delta values, possibly a derivative but of something you cannot hold,
ever-- an object of thought not yet coordinated, not yet mapped. Or
perhaps disappearing from a coordinate map.
This led to an exciting find
which develops a peaking function from a 'point' that is either x =
infinity or is zero or both.
Has implications for measurement while itself not a function that you
can use in a direct kind of way.
Norah comments on how her project aims
"but to create a trace/traces of
choreographic principles or what we started calling a choreographic
Bill wrote an essay on this that might be of interest:
so that the trace is an aftereffect but also a predictive?
just at the point when an aftereffective trace wants to become a
predictor (like a "ideality to be actualized into a well-defined
curve' or whatever at some future date or almost-now):
at that point I wonder if we might use the Dirac Delta Derivative?
but i probably sound like I am on crack.
