Masked Men Invaded Alderwood Mall Last Night

Posted by on Tue, Jun 19, 2012 at 3:21 PM

To prepare for a lecture on evolution dreams and archetypal psychology, Christopher Frizzelle and I listened to the preview of Can’s The Lost Tapes, then we put on luchador masks and walked through Alderwood Mall. The subconscious, from this perspective, is informed by multiple psychophysiological sources. Africanist Leo Frobenius (1873-1938) dealt with cultural morphology that defined culture areas - cultures owning analogous traits that have been spread by diffusion or invasion. With his term paideuma, Frobenius talked about a gestalt, a manner of making meaning due to certain economic constructs. The walk through the mall had nothing to do with that. Frizzelle needed an external hard drive.

The mall waters remind us of Immanuel Kants discussion of space from his Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysic, where he asks, How is it that in this space, here, we can make judgements that we know with apodictic certainty will be valid in that space, there?

Kants reply to the question was that the laws of space are known to the mind because they are of the mind. They are of a knowledge that is within us from birth, a knowledge a priori, which is only brought to recollection by apparently external circumstance.

How is the date on that jewelry display picture tomorrow's date? Did you put on wrestling masks, go to the mall, and travel in time?

@1, that seems to be exactly what they have done.

Actually, Alderwood Mall funcions in its own time zone, a day ahead.

So you guys are The White Mudede? Kant replaces Marx? And how sad that it takes two white dudes to equal one Mudede q.v. overarching socio-political-psychobabble.

No, it's two white buys surrounded by stuffed bears-babble.

Could you guys fix your image embeds on Android? Every time I look at a post with images in it, the images load fine and then when the entire page is loaded, they get replaced with a little "loading" spinny graphic. Which is kind of backwards. And annoying.

Cute photoshoot depicting how architecture-space informs cultural gestalt. A large, open, colorful, atrium-like space tailored for consumerism should numb and placate. But even luchadors need a new iPhone case from time to time.
