Cabot-Koppers Superfund site is an allegory of Expression. By analogy with the invention of literate metaphysics I read any movement in the scene as an intimation of Being. Motion showed Aristotle where to look: movement in space (kinesis) or in time (entelechy). Different modes of change (of location or of state). My passage goes by way of contamination (as in a dream, the whole scene renders the feeling).



The trial/experience of being affected includes the construction of an emblem, to cover or head the attractor at work in this felt. An abstracting from the documents of a design or pattern, that in the first instance intensifies the encounter as a measure of recognition. Making as auto-affection (as experience). My fold unfolding is in the manner of pollution: domains, semantic fields merged reluctantly, as a taint or stain, contracting ruination, wasting, spoilage. Nonetheless, it is the manner, the style of motion that shows the way. Then there is the conductive payoff, the proof of the epreuve: Percolation.

“Percolation is a physical process that describes for a system, a transition from one state to another. In most cases, percolation is assimilated with the apparition of an infinite size cluster, corresponding to significant changes in the physical properties of the system. In physics, chemistry and materials science, percolation concerns also the movement and filtering of fluids through porous materials.”

What does the scene say? It is one example of a kind of motion: Percolation theory is the study of the connectivity of networks. What is the manner of Internet e-motion? Percolation.
