      such is the dilemma of CYBERPIDGIN
  (culture follows the trade routes).

   we are given to understand, intuitively as well as from the 
testimonies of the experts, that 
        individual EXPERIENCE
        collective REALITY
 have separated and are ever more disjunctive

hence the COGNITIVE MAPPING project of Fredric Jameson et al.
  Would natural scientists claim that it is possible to experience
  their object of study?
  Social scientists?
  Do theorists of culture claim that it is possible to experience
  their object of study?
  in any case
  the abstractions of knowledge name impossibilities.
   negative numbers
   the unconscious.
   whatever -ism

   the relevance of Eurotheory 
   is bound up with the relevance of theory
   tel quel. 
   When PHYSICS is obsolete
                (and it will be one day)
   then EUROTHEORY also
        will be
                one day
        post science
        just as there was more to come
                after theology.
