The Limits of Fabrication

The Limits of Fabrication: Materials Science, Materialist Poetics (Idiom: Inventing Writing Theory) by Nathan Brown, book about materials science and Charlie Olson’s (I, Maximus of Gloucester, to You) poetry.

Form of language courted by Heidegger — over what is life and what is rock.

Reminds me of Carlos Castenada — in one of his last books, where searching for truth of image, crawls into rock as shaman logic, to unavoidably discover essence & meaning of slowing down time.

High Didg section. Being and Time as Shape.

How flatten and condense metaphors – and string through philosophy to explain voices heard as “pure thought,” that arise in ways to describe — what science does.

Olson and geodesics, flexible strength and tension in geodesics — Olson inspired chemistry guys in nanomaterials with is bleeding curiosity.

Chemical equations based on how many dimensions you’d have to trace to meet up with surface.

Chemical equations are a form of traceables, equations for nano shape of material incorporates its form.

Usually can be broken down into quadratic equations, i.e. criss crossing into foursies – etc.

Replicating in proper order what are called: nanowands. Got to love that!

Discovering the order in cell nanotechnology. Partly via Olson’s wanderings wondering about new shapes — in poetics — about form!
