I thought abou the
argument of scientists
about the "red shift"

for evidence. Also,
evidence by observation

means of experimentation

I tried to chartacterize
tha past and the
future as words
that represent
my own experience.
The prevailing scientific
view of personality
also determines the
verifiability of the
assertion. I thought of
the "dense probability"
as an alternative
view of the past,
allowing for its
current presence in
my experience but
also determining that
my conception of it
might also alter
its impact. *How
does this effect out
view of a past
identity and a
present identity?*
If the past is
highly condensed
probability represented
by mass, what is
the present and what
is the future?

Possibly by relating
the intervallic
ratio of graphemic
forms in poetry,
one might determine
the actual velocity
of the current temporal
expansion f rom
dense probability
to condensed probability
(the weight of

perceptual data.
Condensed probability
is elicited through
direct sense-perceptual experience

confirms the connection
of the two events.
However, once it
is no longer possible
to connect the two
events by direct
observation, the
past (dense
probability) becomes
less densely probable
and either resumes
its place in the
present (the

The present has
been constantly
expanding since the
beginning of time
itself. Like space,
time is not linear
*only*, it isalso
gradually shifting-
future and past gradually
are encompassed
completely by the
present. Itis
difficult to
predict when
this will take place
(complete condensation
of probable density
into condensed
probabilitiy)- except
that it is observable
through the expansion
of scale in
modern art,
comparable to the
decorative scale
of Egyptian art

5/24/84 (Shape of Time)

Mass exists such that
it comes from the "past"
but also exists in the
present. Any object
therefore is a wave
form of its oscillation
between the past and
the present. What we
call thepresent is
a compound of the
past, the present and
the future. Freud's
hesitation about
synthesis (Freud-
Lou Salome letters)
is ample reminder
that science bid
us to be wary of
sweeping generalizations.
Heisenberg also
reminds us about
tha partial
applicability of
concepts. Both
theoriticians also
however are fully
aware that any
discovery in science
myust be
conditional in its
impact by the
humanand artistic
termis in which it
is stated. Thus
it is also important
to investigate the
physical nature
of language in
both its graphic and
oral forms in order
to understand fully
its relationship to
temporal experience and
its symbolic manifestations.
