Re: Critical Theory Clinically Dead?
According to the theory of chronosomatics (an idea/theory of mine), the modus operandi of humanity today comprises the end stages of massive assimilation (absorption of data), the beginning stages of metabolism (the dualistic creation/destruction of data), and the embryonic development of a forthcoming birth (i.e., about five months into pregnancy).
[Imagine the male/female human body upstanding with outstretched arms as the continuum of time, and the present as a plane slowly rising up through the body. To read the present (or any moment in human history) is to read the cross (transverse) section of the body that the plane of the present cuts through. 2003 corresponds with the corporal cross-section where the lowest tips of the rib-cage appear.]
Essentially, the era of unrestricted expansion, corresponding to the hiatus of peripheral skeleton between the hip bones and the rib-cage is now ending, and a new web-like structure is beginning.
For the most part, about 1/2 inch of corporal cross-section equals 100 years. Ever notice that (on average) the crest of the hip bones lies on the same plane as the center of the navel? That's when/where the heliocentric theory of Copernicus was published.
While Barney was investigating the cremaster and its implications, I was investigating all of the male/female body.
Re: Critical Theory Clinically Dead?
Chronosomatics (theory of time/body) is a biometric (life/measure) model that applies to the entire male/female body form. Fetal development (embryonic development) enters chrono-somatically when the plane of the present begins to cut through the womb within the female body, and fetal development ends within chronosomatics when the plane of the present reaches the apex of the diaphragm (c. 3090 AD).
The female body is, of course, a key element of chronosomatics in that a second life develops within it. Note the similarity between how Eliade describes the role of the sacred and the profane in it's bringing forth a second birth, and the role of our corporal diaphragm, which has three physiological functions, aiding respiration /sacred, defecation/profane, and parturition/birth.
Chronosomatics applies to the totality of human experience, i.e., the entire range of time that the human body indeed exists. Chronosomatics began when the human body began to exist, and chronosomatics will end when the human body ceases to exist.
