Thoughts on temporicity

  • Each channel system represents a different register of time, and a different world
  • One must interact with each channel appropriately according to its temporicity
  • Depth is really an expression of temporicity (viz. Shaoyin vs. Jueyin)
  • All references to time in classical texts are highly symbolic
  • Flow and movement are intrinsic to temporicity (and also define "Channels")
  • Bi 痺 is thus stopped time.
  • Movement precedes and implies direction.
  • Direction precedes space.
