Feeling is the agent which reduces the universe to its perspective for fact.

Alfred North Whitehead

 

Let us use the words psychic overtones, suffusion, or fringe, to designate the influence of a faint brain-process upon our thought, as it makes it aware of relations and objects but dimly perceived.

William James

[like Gould’s chair]

 

Feeling in thinking in meaning…

Feeling in believing in thinking…

Believing in moving in any direction

Feeling moving in every direction

Believing in being one moving in a direction

[the above lines extracted from the following, my emphasis in bold below:]

Believing in moving in any direction

Feeling in thinking in meaning being existing

Feeling in believing in thinking being existing

Feeling moving in every direction

Believing in being one thinking

Believing in being one moving in a direction

Feeling in being any one

 

Gertrude Stein, from Orta: One Dancing, her portrait of Isadore Duncan whom she saw perform in paris. though i don’t think they ever met.
