Space-Time Webbing-Mapping

spinning world-views
creating outwardly
manifesting inward spirals

consider  a node
I call it 0
which is at the centre of a 3D matrix M
constructed from string
around five other nodes in space (fig 1.)

Fig 1.

consider it in 3D (fig 2.)
Fig 2.

if, say, the rate of absorption of the string was constant, how long would it take for the dye to travel to each node?
what if other coloured dyes were added at other nodes?
what if each node was the beginning of another node?
ad infinitum
and what if the dyes were poetry

What if... (fig 3.)

Fig 3.

We all know what comes next:
a trip to the wood yard to get the makings of a compost bin.

Balancing reflection with activity is always a political issue.

In reality...
in real-ity
It's probably unlikely that the dye would be introduced spontaneously
far more likely a co-dependent, inter-be event
there is a god
chasing one another around Indra's web
on colourful poems of earthly delight
sparking jewels in the night sky
high above the cathedral spire
the other night (Tuesday)
Tew's day
there was magic in the air
that was the stuff of space
filaments of darkness
filling the space between heaven and earth
bearing witness to father
and holy ghost
crackling laughter
in the music of the night.

Sure on this Shining Night
"Sure on this shining night
Of starmade shadows round,
Kindness must watch for me
This side the ground.
The late year lies down the north.
All is healed, all is health.
High summer holds the earth.
Hearts all whole.
Sure on this shining night I weep for wonder wand'ring far

Of shadows on the stars."*
(Rufus) James Agee (1909-1955)
