neostalgic for: diaspora, neighbors-to-be, new ways of being, emergent delight, finding each other.
i love homegrown, grassroots wisdom (i learn best from intimate conversations, personal blogs, and the occasional twitter thread)
(my are.na is so cluttered - many things on twitter i want to have better bookmarks for q.q)

"The poet is a scientist and the scientist is a poet who meet again when they each cultivate an observation of the world where the measured pattern of things and their mystery, the answer and the question dance together without either one dominating the other. Perhaps this is something that all our scientists and poets need – to freely cultivate a childlike and wonderstruck vision of our worlds without dissociating mind and body. I see poettechnics as a seed of new cultures where science and poetry are seen in another way." -- https://flordeamaneceres.wordpress.com/2021/02/10/que-son-las-poetecnicas-poetechnics/
Brückner uses four catergories for evaluating and describing personal time feeling:
1. The tempo of the time in relation to past time experiences. Does it feel slow or fast?
2. The quality of beeing in a time. Is it pleasant or unpleasant? Filled or empty? Full of chances or threatening?
3. The conciousness in a time. Is the passing of the time noticed?
4. The relation between the personal time and "worldtime".
Am I "behind" worldtime or faster than "worldtime"? "Worldtime" being the tempo of my sociaty.
The times are urgent; let us slow down. Slowing down is losing our way—not a human capacity or human capability. It is the invitations that are now in the world-at-large, inviting us to listen deeply, to be keen, to be fresh, to be quick with our heels, to follow the sights and sounds and smells of the world.
We're dealing with something that is, in my calculations, fundamentally incalculable. It is unframeable. It is something that calls for a shapeshift, not for a resolution or solutions, or technological or techno-bureaucratic deletions, or funding… It is an invitation to stop in our tracks and feel—like failure is the gift that we are looking for right now.
Slowing down is not a function of privilege. It's a function of intimacy with a world that is agentially alive; it's crossroads dynamic.
