1 The Archaeology of Perception. Chapter 1. Novel Statements. I wouldn t say that it is an entirely accurate statement.

Or maybe, if I were going to be entirely honest I wouldn t say it was a statement at all.

At least not in the way Foucault spoke about statements and their simultaneous self-conscious acknowledgement of existing only in this one moment as well as almost quantumly being constituted in many pasts and many futures that mere mortals can only access at the particular moment of their expression by through the winding discursive structures that forms points on a multiplicity of geometrical planes in very particular ways, times and very particular statements.

No. I am not self-aware in the least, I have no idea where I am in regards to the structures of knowledge that supposedly surround me, connecting and disconnecting us all through language, gesture, and other forms of perception.

Nor do I know what time I would like to live in, do live in or am blissfully unaware of not living in. Yes this is all very complicated, mostly because anything translated from French into English sounds complicated, but really it is the only language that seems to be able to capture the silent and non-existent power structures that enforce the dominance of the English looking and speaking races and histories that project certain forces and ways of interpreting the world into the future, from right here our past.

Chapter 2. Before You Can Know.

I suppose before I make any type of statement, and before you can know any type of thing we must start with the little bits of landscape and that begin to accumulate on our planes of existence. By this I do not mean a purely geographical plane of existence because most of the time, at least I know for

2 myself, I am not implying I have come to know anything about you, other than what you will come to embrace about me, but that we live in mostly in our thoughts, actions and deeds how we come to chronologically shape these

events in series are dependant mostly on the various mental structures that are built into our bodies from the outside. Thus what we come to accumulate as the knowledge of self and knowledge of other, right and wrong, good or bad is purely invocation and extrapolation. (Amongst many other and similar events) Bare with me, the end of this chapter will find you most pleased as it is there we will begin to deal with the land marks that will seem more recognizable to your own worldly orientation, and as uneasy as you are reading this, I am far more writing it knowing that I lost you before I was even able to get to my non-existent point.
