Limited View

The common dominant logic is crucially based on the presumption that a thing’s space is limited. Limits are set to its extension and propagation, namely by the existence of others.

Things abut one another, they collide, they displace one another.

That is the logic of solid bodies, of mechanics. It is the logic of delimited territories, of possessing, of conquering and defending, of fighting and making war — as well as, on the other hand, of meeting friendly and touching gently.

It is the logic of borderlines and separation. Either this or that; or nothing at all; but never both, in no case. The logic of NAND, of not-and. — Or of NOR, of not-or: we must decide, we have to take sides.
