Ep. 7: The Sound of the Body (Essay Excerpt)

Listen to this episode on Spotify here, or Apple Podcasts here.

This episode is a recording of one section of an essay I originally wrote for subscribers. Read the full essay here.

The key points in this "speaking":

  • The world arrives as one: body and soul together, one uncaused arising.

  • "Foods prepared with presence can open the pores towards particular worlds."

  • "The human is a virtual animal, an ideological construct that derives its meaning from material exclusion."

  • "The Yukaghirs say that before children learn to speak, the body is open: “raw meat.” Language is learned and the flesh bends into itself, circling small worlds of human-centric meanings."

  • "Foregoing language re-attunes the flesh to the fluid, sensual conversation outside of fixed human meanings."

  • "I would also like to be less dependent on this technology we call speech. Can I learn the subtle speakings of wilder things?"
