The book isn’t meant to have a center. The book is not meant to be read in order.

A book is made up of different dates and different speeds.

The chapters of the book delve nonlinearly into a range of philosophic, scientific, and political subjects connected by threads of ideas that go off in different directions at different speeds and different intensities.

Accompanying my research, memories, and project documentation, I record personal anecdotes that reflect my passion and my obsessions, as well as lay the foundation for the included work.

The book is a map book, a roots book, an octopus tentacles book.
