- notes summer 1969/ 1 year of thought----                                                                 witty " MAKE THE PATTERNS
- in general, it occurs to me that                                                                                        MEMORABLE ON    
whereas in the mandalic works i was                                                                              PURPOSE BY
saying (diagram), i am now                                                                                      CORRELATING THEM"
simply trying to get rid of the
equivalence relation sign so that
(diagram) + we have an
isotropic (simultaneous) relation, equal                                                                      (Diagrams)
(--->=<---) at any point (diagram)

- This must be an outgrowth of
my sculpture ("currents under
tension") of summer 1968.
Rate-curve-slope-velocity changes
are also alternatives to algebraic
balance of "parts" (steve Reich,
m. snow) + so is homogeneity
(pollock, early Warhol, landow, l.m. young)         

*(side note) one must:
deal with the facts to generate a non-fact, because , if one multiplies fictions (negatives), one ends up with a not very interesting fact.
