paused within a moment’s
transfixing, transficting* gaze
i am wordless, caught
by a pure concept
its crystalline, momentary
that leave no trace
trans formed** to fiction
indeed [how odd you call them facts!]
*transfiction; the transformation of reality into its representation, which is then taken as real (as in reality; it is of course real because it serves a function, is used and thus must obviously exist; questioning the amount of connection between a representation and the ‘real’ is quite a different matter–see Law and Justice).
** Not a typo, thankee kindly. And ‘thankee’ predates the Oxford Dictionary. I daresay out of usage. It was used after the establishment of The Dictionary, mind you, as well.
This might also be taken to be an attempt at definition of an active process in human society. Then again, it might not.
Final note, this isn’t McLuhan’s ‘factoids’ construction, which is media-wise the same principle in basis.
