Chapter two is complete! This thing kept growing on me somewhat outward and frequently inward. The sequence here concludes the chapter. It's a journey with a few references to the Odyssey (from cyclops, to Ithaka, and more), a lot of triangles and tetrahedrons, and a weaving together of a number of diverse philosophical perspectives (as is the entire chapter) from pragmatism to fractals to parallax. Furthermore, it reflects on and draws on earlier elements of the rest of the chapter and the interlude (see for example Rhizomes and Flatland and the previously discussed Joyce/faucet page here.) I'm planning to post the entire chapter in order plus the title page at the end of the week ... so stay tuned! thanks - Nick
