Or the schema grows large and diffuse. It has become large enough for me to walk through nonchalantly barely keeping it in mind. To the general of its airy surround, I cart the particulars. the schema house, hotel room, if need be, represents a lot of work on my part. It is almost as much a construction as the original. and perhaps, sometimes,a good deal more than that. All i can say is that is coheres to its own coherency without wires although it is as contiguous in and of itself as any wire or wiring--and full well as good a conductor. A group of something has agreed to be the house. The organic, as usual, will lend a hand to--I should say that it underwrites--the organic. It is said that the vocabulary of schematic constellations in my condition is about as extensive as extensive as is most people's vocabulary of words.
