(chronosomatically) Contemplating the Navel
As the plane of the present rose into the portion of the body immediately above the navel, the only significant difference registered in the new cross sections was the recession of the navel itself and, therefore, the lack of a single point of concentration. Otherwise, the lower abdomen's internal composition remained consistent; the intestine continued as the sole organ and the absence of a skeleton along the abdomen's periphery continued to enable corporal expansion. The Timepiece gauge illustrates how this relatively uniform portion of the body corresponds to the time approximately between 1500 AD and 1700 AD. This reading of the gauge also indicates the continuation of assimilation and expansion as humanity's principal modus operandi for the same 200 year period, and the lack of a concentrated center during these two centuries of operational sameness coincides with the diffusion of humanity's new modus operandi beyond the Mediterranean region and its spread throughout Europe and around the world. In chronosomatic terms, it was after the concentration of both the navel and the High Renaissance that the process of extensive geographic and scientific assimilation began, and proof of this assertion comes with a threeway comparison between the time of Europe's worldwide explorations, the simultaneous rise in modern science, and the 'time' that the corporal cross section above the navel remained unchanged. By 1700 AD, European explorations had charted virtually all the Earth except for the South Pacific and the North and South Poles, and Issac Newton had already discovered the basic laws of physics, and, overall, the operations of expansion and assimilation were at the core of practically every commercial and intellectual activity of the West during the 16th and 17th centuries. The operational consistency and singularity of this 200 year period ends, however, when the plane of the present begins encountering an organ additional to the intestines, the dual kidneys.
