This paper should function, formally speaking, as an analog to the approach I take in producing art, which is to say that something that might resemble a thesis or ideological proposition is not explicitly stated, but must be extrapolated from fragments layered upon each other within arbitrary limits. This approach allows the ideas put forth to be imbued with the anxieties, doubts and contradictions that characterize unedited thought. A sense of time and inexhaustibility of content is to be conveyed through an accumulative and meandering process, hence the lack of a real beginning or end.
