Transcendence is often the act of liberating a thing from corporeal / material confines into another state or degree of abstraction. What’s the opposite of transcendence? I wonder how the impetus to melt all that is solid into abstracted air is counteracted with the desire to anchor a system of operation into the stuffs of our reality. I wonder if this type of anchoring is really what’s freeing.
