Hinge Trio

8 x 10.5 inches

88 pages



Hinge Theory is not a philosophy; it is a guideline to enable entrance to the Hinge Universe which is a continuing construct of perpetually interconnecting, profusely propagating, contagiously enlivening multi-universes of multi-complementary extensions. We have identified language as alive, generative, reproductive. We replace the lexiconically static with the Impregnative-Fertile . . . Hinge is paradoxically about creation and discovery. I say paradoxically because we view creation/exploration/discovery as all coterminous. We are not claiming to present any thing that doesn’t already exist, but rather to deliver what Does Indeed Exist. To reveal what has been dormant, undisclosed because, like rocketry which enabled the human race to get a handle on outer space, we now have an approach that can lead us to uncharted territory, to miraculous material. One can see/experience how a lingual universe is being created, step by step, cautiously, reverently, circumspectly, gaining & gaining, galaxies being created. The only apt comparison would be to our universe which has already been created and is still undergoing creation, evolvement . . . we can talk about it, but the universe is still the universe, existing independent of exegisis and scientific analysis . . . creation continues unabated, independent of discussion and analysis . . . The horse is domesticated, but not the zebra. The zebra avoids domesticity by being a zebra and not a horse. You can’t tame the untamable.
