Nobody loves the Non-Linear

Disciplinary Knowing

           What seems the
          of thought is only the
            distribution of the
            whole into causal

Emerson: commenting on the difference if not
relationship between  thinking on the one hand
(so to speak) and  its manifest expression as
linear sequence and succession one after the
other, time after time like these words on a
screen: sequential, but the thought is whole: an
all-at-once-ness parsed into beginning-middle-end,
simultaneity  translated into cause & effect, eternity
chrono logical-ized: the song over but the melody
lingering on how could it be otherwise?

Digitalized! damnit—a violence to the whole.

I am a miser: holding on to what I got: this &
that & that. No way can I let go my because &
affect, reasons-why, explanatory interpretations
& blame-ations, escape goating terms of desire
one after another in time and space.

Spirit on the one hand. reduced to letters on
the other hand: words,  sentences I can sulk
over, sanctify,quibble and  correct.

Here’s how. Here’s why. Here’s when.
Me measuring all things & no things,
so as to see & say hap happening happily
one thing  after another  reducing the whole into
causal sequence for the sake of convenience if
not always convention.
