...IS A PARASITE?

SYN (along with, at the same time | from Greek SYN, with | ~SYNTHETIC) + SITE (N: point of event, occupied space, internet address; V: to place in position | from Latin SITUS, location, idleness, forgetfulness | ~WEBSITE ¬cite ¬sight), cf. SITE/NON-SITE (from Robert Smithson, A PROVISIONAL THEORY OF NONSITES, 1968)

the semiconductor-grade silicon crystal industry has much in common with the healing crystal industry (which has been experiencing a period of increased popularity thanks in part to the rise of networked digital platforms). By mapping the resonances between these two seemingly opposed crystal economies through archival and field research into both, this talk re-grounds the increasingly everyday experience of using networked technologies in geologic, environmental, and metaphysical dimensions.

This connection is a transclusion that is the same content in two places. It is not a link. It is not represented by link structures. It is differently found. [...]

We see as we step through the connections on this page that the other documents swarf into position — it's swoop plus morph — and the connections become exactly readable. So one connection at a time we can follow what the connections actually mean, even though we are in a huge conglomerate of many different connections. [...]

This same structure can be used to represent any mix of audio, video, and text so that you can use this type of link — or flink as we call it, floating link — for in and out points on audio and video. You can edit in-place and create arbitrarily rich, transclusive structures [...] See, this to me is a real representation in depth of literature as it should always have been and anything less is a compromise with tradition and shallowness.
