bodily self-transformation / anchoring the self to matter
Fossilisation replaces tissues with minerals. The wood is replaced by agate.
Fall of Rome recorded in trees
I salute you from the Petrified Forest of human culture
Where nothing is left standing
But where roam great swirling lights
Which call for the deliverance of foliage and bird.
From your fingers flows the sap of trees in flower.
Andre Breton / Ode to Charles Fourier
