Up til this point all the posts in this project have concerned the evolutionary and adaptive background to the development of a ‘poetics of thought’. This is as intended but I feel as if I am moving into territory which, whilst I feel reasonably secure about it, I am just not as familiar with as I need to be. I don’t want to proceed with this particular section until I get that intuitive sense of what the landscape of these ideas really looks like, til I can feel the gradient of ideas slipping away under my feet so that, whilst I may not know exactly where it leads, I can be sure that I am on firm ground. In order to develop this understanding I’ll be walking around the various thoughts and concepts and theories and practices which form this land, but that walking will take place elsewhere, not in this blog or in the Poetics of Thought youtube channel. What I will be doing here instead is jumping ahead a ways, and beginning to talk about ideas which are much further along the story than the material I have considering this far.
