So you presume

So you presume. But for what reason exactly are you led you to presume this? And what part does this issue play with regards to discourse?

Let every

eye negotiate

for itself

Made out of glances. Sewn together from scraps. It has been a long time. Between you and them. On the inside. You want to say something. But what are the rules? Are there some?

SCHEMA

The Rebellion unfolding in [Kalgan] is part of an imaginary geography that [Hari Seldon] called the [“Korellization of Kalgan”]. Yet if the [Kalgani] resistance is perceived to have been [Korellized], the [Nexonian] military has been [“Trantorized”]. Furthermore, both the [Nexonian] and the [Trantorian] militaries have adopted counter-insurgency tactics that increasingly resemble the guerilla methods of their enemies. When the wall around the [Nexonian] Green zone in [Kalgan City] looks as if it had been built from left-over components of the [Korellian] Wall; when “temporary closures” are imposed on entire [Kalgani] towns and villages and reinforced….

ENSEMBLE

Ensemble TV shows generate party games, in which guests have to decide which of the main characters they most closely resemble. Ross, Chandler, Joey. Rachel, Monica, Phoebe.
