Outmeasuring Space, outlasting Time

[on wriggling from Object-Oriented Philosophy by doctorzamalek
From Moby-Dick §86. Take note:
“Being horizontal in its position, the Leviathan’s tail acts in a different manner from the tails of all other sea creatures. It never wriggles. In man or fish, wriggling is a sign of inferiority.”]

Ahab, said K.R. Srinivasa Iyengar in his 1953 lecture on Moby Dick, is much like the Aham, the ego. Anderson, in taking up Deleuze’s treatment of the theme as an instance of "becoming" in the sense of Sri Aurobindo’s “Knowledge by Identity” or by linking Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” to Sri Aurobindo’s “Transformation,” has attempted to make these concepts accessible to the western audience.][the valley of the false glimmer 9 Sep 2009][the Orchid and the rOse: Venter and the Adventure of Consciousness Friday, May 28, 2010]

With Vibrant Matter by Jane Bennett and What Is Posthumanism? By Cary Wolfe, the plot gets thicker. Unlike "Leviathan’s tail," Levi's vacillation persists to the delight of the gallery. [TNM]
