fork

To begin with what happens when saying fork in English, when a native speaker, to limit1 1to be dealt more fully later although fullness and limit may seem opposed unless

contemplating a situation, such as existence, that is full of limits, which perhaps would be a waste of an opportunity to be full; an existence full of limits just outright seems incapable of exploiting fullness, well, fully. Of late, limit has taken on a link (difficult to limit or prevent associations when information is electrically imprinted in a neural network, the apparently simultaneous deployment of soft anchors to multiple neural information hubs, attaching another facet to each info group (soft because of their plasticity, ability to be reworked, to bend, to expand). More research is needed here, more experimentation which certain funding sources would want to limit to non- human subjects, fearing monsters before the trials conclude with, ideally, near-perfect methods and interventions that control how information is processed in the brain, maybe even a junk section that the limited thinker could empty through a programmable sequence of blinks and grunts. It would be great to see something emptying from the brain’s disposal portal, to see a stream of junk info flowing out of a head into a sewer (the electrical discharge associated with emptying the junk bin perhaps could be amplified with some small —I’m thinking nano—device implanted somewhere in the nervous system, allowing the discharge to be simulated visually and/or sonically—maybe technology developed from the work that has resulted in the vOIce project Seeing with Sound in which the totally blind can see: http://  www.seeingwithsound.com/).

this beginning further, speaks fork,2 the upper central incisor teeth almost bite the f of the word into the lower lip, and air is forced through the opening.

2fork: a language system that references multiple simultaneous operations; for instance: to think one way and behave in a different manner, to take a position inconsistent with established cues, clues, promises, trends, expectation; to deliberately establish cues, clues promises, trends so as fork away from them; the love of deception; to stick that which is expecting something based on established cues with a fork; a pursuit- evading maneuver; to go one way then fork often abruptly in an unanticipated direction, foiling the pursuit; to be able to split, to be inhabited by forking personalities, each one of them capable of speaking fork.

As for native speaker—some clarification is needed here too, I suppose, for those of us (I mean me and others) with a sensitivity to the use of native:3

5that is: what these terms also look like in a mirror, specifically: gravitational mirroring,6

6subjected to an intensity such that there is displacement; the reflection as visual echo, reverberations of the deflecting encounter, a repositioning relocating the mirage, the dictionary and the anti-dictionary7

7As on an episode of Columbo, his hair as black as deep space gravity can look, the black of gravity’s effect in and near a black hole also a mirror; the episode in which a genius club member murders a rival genius by dictionary with the help of an umbrella and Tchaikovsky’s overture to Romeo and Juliet.

the mirage and its double, the meanings and the other meanings; the deviation that opens something, a little split so that meanings can be biopsied to determine what else, what they really contain

a term which isn’t exactly double-edged, as native3 has more than two edges, so is crystalline in structure, each edge further edged as magnification, beyond this text focus, can reveal; but I do mean specifically two edges, and the doubling of edge-intensity, so sharper effects17 are achieved— even though positioning on the edge might be problematic, the apparently increased opportunity to fall off that edge, even if edge is a nod to the progressive—and such a fall is particularly problematic since no drop-off range has been indicated, so it would be a fall off the edge into nothing, and this is not the place, no matter how intense—or edged—the interest becomes to fall into a discussion of the physics and philosophical implications of a fall into something defined as nothing, nothing indicating some form of negative space even though landing in negative space is exactly where the use of native also arrives, negative as in derogatory, negative as in less than zero, outside of the range of what can be detected by the unassisted senses (including assistance with anti-discrimination legislation).8

8consider the less-than-zero position in society of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man

who says in the prologue:

I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me…That invisibility to which I refer occurs because of a peculiar disposition of the eyes of those with whom I come in contact. A matter of the construction of their inner eyes, those eyes with which they look through their physical eyes upon reality.

Those sensitive (I mean me and others) might perceive (the perception encasing what is perceived in a reality, perception treating the object of perception as fact in the manner of its actual [in the fact of the manner of its] imprinting into neural networks where imprint sorting along a reality gradient does not occur) misuse in the usage being risked here;

a native speaker then, someone speaking a language as a first language of that speaker in a location where that language is commonly spoken, the language of the country of the person’s birth, even if the language of this country is not the native language of that country, meaning not the first or original language of that country, but an imported language, as in a non-indigenous species that thrives (possibly via chokehold) in new surroundings whose threats successful against other species, perhaps other native species, are no threats to the transplant, so to speak English in North America is not to speak the language native to North America. The native languages, to use another out-of- fashion, out-of-taste, pretty much out-of-any-redeeming-value value of native, not even a redeeming mirage; the native languages of North America would be the languages of the native populations or savages, the uncivilized, designations easier to make if the tongue is forked, split,9 able to speak from both sides of the mouth simultaneously,

9the forked or split tongue suggests the possibility of torture technique to carry out the splitting, the work of single or double-edged splitters, such as the magic used to split Anderson’s Little Mermaid’s fish tail, reverberations and echoes of the split experienced each time she walks, splitting again the consequences of her decision into knives and forks, utensils that are means to access something, their purpose being to assist with access, as in extending access to higher social classes through use of the right fork with each course of the meal.

to state and contradict simultaneously, to juxtapose, to increase the likelihood of consistent indication of the presence of alternative, to more authentically represent the existence of multiplicity of meaning, to simulate justice through pointing to more than one way, to be pro-choice of expression, to be indecisive, unable or unwilling to commit to a single path, to extend the tongue’s pickup ability through adding functionality similar to chopsticks, the forked tongue is also

able to wrap its two serpent-prongs or tines around a single chopstick or similar stem so as to form a mouth-borne caduceus, a figure associated with healing; a forked tongue may also become a plaited tongue, a fashion statement in word and appearance.

To fork is to have more than one way to go, to split, to increase options, each one of which may be referred to as a prong or tine. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to create a system of bifurcations, possibly to choose a particular avenue of tine for some period of time. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to access something and make what is accessed useable by decreasing distance from what is accessed and the user of the fork. To fork is to lift. To fork is to dig into and possibly separate or filter with the branches or prongs. There is definitely the likelihood of loss, through the branches or prongs, of some portion of what is being accessed, what is being forked up. To fork is to support with the fork. To fork is to be at the location or to the location where something splits into more parts. To split is to divide into more parts; the earthquake forks the house, the bridge, the road. The coroner forks the cadaver in an autopsy. The broken bone is a forked bone. A yodel is a forking note. A tree is a bifurcating system of branches. A root system is a bifurcating system of branches. The bifurcated mandrake. A bifurcating system is a forking system. Each evolutionary branch and sub-branch is an evolutionary fork or sub-fork. What a fork manages to lift is a forkful even if the fork is not at maximum lift capacity. The arm and hand system is a forking system. The digits or fingers of the hand are bifurcations or tines, usually articulated tines; a bird’s foot, the articulated robotic hand of The Terminator;10 the articulated robotic claw in those grab-a-toy mechanical gyp-boxes such as was in the lobby of my local Chi-chi’s before closure and is still in the lobby of my local branch (fork) of the Quality 16 cinema chain (forked system) where Limited Fork Poetics11 was born. Tyne12 Daly is       being inducted right now into a branch of the fork hall of fame. The twin (or two-pronged) towers

of the World Trade Center system had a system of exterior forks as part of the structural and aesthetic integrity of the WTC.13

10 A film in three, to date, parts or tines (forks) featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger in a branch (or fork) of his career as the title character, from a fork of future that is also a fork of past, who attempts create an alternative tine of future by using a present moment (the now in which the movie takes place) as a bifurcation point

12Tyne Daly played “Mary Beth Lacey,” a detective on the television crime drama “Cagney and Lacey”; her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is marked by five bifurcation points (locations to which forking has arrived and/or locations from which forking can proceed). Tyne is the name of a river system in England. A tributary or branch of a river may be considered a tine of the river; such a river is forked. A fork in a road is a bifurcation point, a location where a road or segment of a road splits into at least one additional segment. Tyne is considered a variation, or branch, of Tine which is considered a branch or bifurcation of Martina and Tina.

Tine is the name of a Norwegian dairy producer also Norway’s biggest food company (at the time of this writing), a name that resonates (a bifurcating gesture or movement; the rippling water forks; branches of a forking system need not be straight and need not remain straight if they are or become straight for some length of time) in Norway as reference to a bentwood box used in the 17th century and later for carrying and storing food, primarily butter and cheese.14, 15

The eating utensil fork can be unforgiving, can bully the

steak, the chicken, the prime rib; the eating utensil fork can hold the meat in place, prevent it from sliding on the smooth surface of a plate so that big meat can be cut done to pieces of a size easy to handle and swallow; the larger incarnation is a carving fork that holds in place bigger meat that will be cut, dissected into individual servings; scissors17 are on an evolutionary branch of the fork family.

This consideration of fork has been forking in order to consider fork; this commentary has forked as literary device; when not a verb, when not involved in activity (see flux), when a noun, a fork is commonly a device or tool. The tines of a fork system need not be in direct

contact with the handle or concept but can be; the branches of the fork may be linked to it remotely or through metaphor. There is no maximum number of tines that a fork may have. A fork may have both direct and indirect tines attached to it. Tines need not be linear. Each tine may support multiple bifurcation points. A maze or labyrinth is a forking system. The space between tines may be wide or narrow. Whether wide or narrow, the fork may lose something or some part of something to the spaces between. When the space between tines is sufficiently small, it may not be possible to perceive the presence of any space between the tines without the aid of instruments calibrated to measure on the scale of gap. When the space between tines is imperceptible on a scale of human aided or unaided perception, the fork may be considered as and may function practically as a shovel. A shovel plays less a role in flux than does fork. A snow shovel is usually a device to lift snow. A snow fork is a device or instrument that measures properties of snow.18A snow fork could also be a fork made of snow or a fork in which some of the tines are snow-covered for some period of time.

18 See a snow fork here: Toikka oy

and read about how the snow fork functions.19 19 Footnotes are tines and sub-tines

Many dead-ends are also tines.

A conjoined twin is a forked twin.

HD DVD’s and Blu-Ray discs are tines, one of which may remain open and likely to produce more tines, one of which may become a dead end.

A circular closed tine may also be hoop, ring, loop, feedback loop; a system of at least two closed tine loops can also be used to indicate infinity or the bones of a bow tie. Apple Computer’s address: One Infinite Loop is a fork of grab, the tines so close together they seem one, a fist, a forkful that is a handful, a hand closed around what a fork has grasped and not letting go; a palm reader reads forks, a palm reader navigates forks, a palm tree is a binary fork system, as are most trees: bifurcating roots20 and bifurcating branches,21 the apple, fig, coconut; fruit as bulbous tines, grapes as bulbous tines in clusters, wine as bulbous tines liquefied; the nervous system is a forking system as is My Galactic Octopus,22 as is the nervous system of an octopus, as is an octopus.

21 A ventilation system forks.

limited

…for it is known that there are boundaries whether or not the exact nature of a boundary is known at any given moment or can be known at some specified moment; indeed, the abilit y t o s pe c if y a mome nt demonstrates a means of isolating a moment, of focusing on a moment, to discard what is not part of a specified moment, to exclude that which is not part of the moment being considered, to be able to exert parameters of confinement, to filter, to distill, to deal with specified parts, to develop and apply rules of focus, rules of concentration, parameters of inclusion, to be unable to exceed something, to be at capacity, not possible to go further, the inadequacy of knowledge, just short of cure, finite cap to any number of infinities within the borders, the point beyond which there is nothing, the privilege of being on the other side of nothing, exclusive, only for those with certain specifications, qualifica tions, restricted, location of power, wealth, pulls out all the stops, makes few stops along the trip, the laws that limit, that curb power, owners of a company legally responsible for no more than the capital invested, cannot be exceeded, the pinnacle, the best, for once and for all, the best film (etc.) to remain the best each year until a new film stretches the limit, raises the bar, otherwise, Shakespeare wins Nobel prize for literature year after year after year, the line between possible and i m p o s s i b l e , p e r m i s s i b l e a n d prohibited, a limit can be in flux, new data can push, revise, reassign limits, the limit of one circumstance is not necessarily the limit of any other circumstance, a limit may be shared, may be disputed, a speed limit can be

exceeded, often with consequences, to exceed the limit of the speed of light is to have to rethink ideas that have exceeded the appropriate limits or brakes easily placed on ideas, becoming fundamental concepts instead, the foundation of other truths of existence, to be limited: to be without much talent or promise, consigned to be pretty much the way it is now, in need of air, water, nutrients, limited to need something outside of self.

mezzy

first off: variation of mezze: a Mediterranean appetizer because there is always hunger,

some of which is for the mezzy of existence, for essence, for the exceeding of apparent limits, for a way to stretch, for exquisite, for elegant, for any purpose, the spiritual mezzy, the mezzy art as a means of elevation, the physical mezzy, visible architecture, structures, houses of mezzy evidence, a restaurant in Oakland, the mezze of poetry: the endless feast for the insatiable appetite for meaning, luminous resonance, toward zenith, little bits of tasty treats to please the palate, syllables, stanzas, the delight of poam, planned or impromptu, get some mezzy here: The Mezzy Factor, here: The Mezzy           Factor continues, and here: The Inevitable Mezzy of Poetry; the mezzy of ability to locate and taste the delicious, to have no significant limit to how much mezzy can be tolerated, to feast today, to feast now and be full, extended, ascending, zenith-bound only to have the sun set, to experience digestion, the extraction of nutrients, shrinkage of the consumed, the bounded, the limited via consumption mezzy, to have room for more mezzy, to make room for more mezzy, to need to consume more, to be unable to exhaust the mezzy supply, to be limited to seeking, desiring mezzy, popular mezze dishes include: babaghanoush, tabbouleh, rocket salad (salatat jarjir), kibbeh, shanklish, sausages that are treasure chests opened with bites, mezzy menus that are on tables of content, search results such as the menu of mezzy results when Tokyo Butter opens, the Song there, the mezzy that sings, Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonders, Everything that Rises, Andrew Zimmern’s bizarre foods, the taste of everything, when mezzy morsels rot, when mezzy morsels decompose, the result is more mezzy, maggot pilgrims come to mezzy the mezzy, it cannot get putrid enough to completely wreck the mezzy, oh instead it can putridly enhance, there is the mezzy of putrefaction, the toxic is an edible idea, the mezzy of idea, taste of whole Google earth, whole shebang food, what is possible to be forked, a mezzy is a forkful, the engine, the power of the universe, the fuel and the fuel burner is a mezzy cooker, whatever exists is a         mezzy cook, to catch snowflakes on the tongue, to run through hordes of fireflies and locusts with the mouth open is to be mezzy ready, mezzy receptive, and a little bit of a beautiful fool.

scale

It’s about time to fork this into perspectives, about time to weigh and determine what’s present, what’s active according to perspectives accessible without devices and with devices designed to extend (within the limits of their making) what the senses can access, it’s time to scale this, remove those lime deposits, the tartar on teeth, the tiles on butterflies, moths, fish, preparing them for something else, to be of more use on a human, a specific cultural perspective, let’s supply context, a way to order, a musical sequence, order of magnitude, duration, to interpret, a way to check the reasonableness, a table of feasibility, the various tracts and tracks of time, relativity of perspective, dry skin, a basic feather, to scale: to remove scales, to cross scale quickly, to move by powers of ten, to use metaphor as a tool to cross scale, seeking symmetry, seeking archetypal patterns on multiple scales, the repetition of form in the universe, the redundancy of basic forms with which to build endless variety, distribution, graphs, maps, diagrams, the Mandelbrot set, scale models, in proportion, chains, justice, measure, relative size, enlarge, shrink, fractals, the repetition of propagation, scale, rate of change, saturation, the temperature scale, increments of measure, processing units, local events on a local scale, magnification reveals scale toward the smaller, toward the larger, telescope, microscope, tele-scale, micro-scale, impact, determination of significance, insignificance and the relative meaning, impact of these determinations on various and across scales, a tool for setting balance, tone, scale factor for the expansion of the universe, for the collapse, dimensions, the boundaries of accountability, obesity monitor, a scale factor multiplies, the perception of wow intensified, multiplied as Grant Williams as The Incredible Shrinking Man shrank away, dissipated, the rate: scale of his dissipation correlated to the rate: scale of expansion of his awareness of the scale of this, his place value, the scale of placement of exponents, superscripts, approximations, greater than, less than enclosures, how something is seen, how something can be seen, alternative representation of the same, of similar information, packaging, integrity manager, what is being considered, what is available, scale of the undertaking, of the menu, ratio, Fujita scale of tornadic activity, Beaufort scale of wind activity (includes reference to horse heads which scale for me a silhouette that embraces fiddles, and the related, on that scale, treble clef of seahorse), the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity, to be scales, to be evaluated, rated, assigned a relative position, family of man (includes these forks: women, children, ~97% of chimpanzee DNA).

simultaneity

Stop right here

Simultaneity should not be last

If simultaneity exists, it is not last

So while a linear scale managed progress through the layout of these definitions, in truth, fork, flux, limited, mezzy, scale, simultaneity existed concurrently

on different scales, at different rates of changes, different levels of perceptibility, different and multiple locations; all have been present in some form(s) in some location(s).

The pattern of distribution of these elements is not necessarily linear, but any flux portion forked for examination may be perceived or momentarily limited to parameters of investigation in which a linear assessment makes sense and on the scale of circumstances being considered, linear behavior manifests, holds true for calculations and observations while at the same time, in a larger consideration, on a different scale, assessments may need adjusting, for what works, what makes sense, what has truth and mezzy on a particular scale may fail, that failure offering a mezzy of failure, as scale shifts, what makes sense shifts, what has truth shifts, mezzy shifts; the mezzy constant is the existence of, the persistence of a form of mezzy.

Is it that the forms of what exists on each scale on which something exists are necessarily changing? No.

Just watching it can change its behavior.

It probably has behavior without being watched.

But one possibility of simultaneity is that of consensus, that of conspiring to maintain the simultaneous existence itself; the collective exertion of belief in the shared existence projects that existence, that limit of what is; the mezzy of collaboration, for everything existing to manifest some element, some evidence (presently detectable by others or not, whose development of tools to detect presences is usually constrained by the ways in which those developers have been shaped by perceiving to seek [perceptible] evidence) of presence on some scale for some period of time, measured according to some perspective, on some scale so that there is no universal time for the simultaneous manifestation of presence.

Simultaneity then suggests occurrence during a shared unit of time, the length or duration, the experience of the shared unit differing according to the perspective of the constituents sharing the unit of time; it isn’t even the same time on earth, separation of hours, of degree, scale of light, darkness; for some hours (relative to a computation of hour in this solar system on this planet) of a day (relative to a computation of day in this solar system on this planet in this galaxy in this universe) it isn’t even the same day on earth, all inhabitants of earth do not use the same calendar; from each scale, from each perspective, there is a different implication of simultaneity.

I do like the starburst model of simultaneous acceleration of the known universe, the universe in which there is some trusted evidence of occupancy, other universes, which may exist simultaneously, at this moment (scale of time) existing speculatively, existing in hopes, wishes, imagination so is real there, in the realm of limits of mind, existing if not

exactly parallel, then with the external mostly-three-dimensional (it seems) universe; I do like the shape of that more- or-less uniform expansion, the idea of growth in all directions, with little detectable discrimination, as eager a move toward heavens as toward hells; I do like the distribution of growth occurring as air imparts growth to a balloon, and while there may not be precisely equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, if the balloon model of universe is accurate; while there may not be equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, I envision a mezzy of curved, of eccentric fork tines; I envision a luminous chrysanthemum of petals and flowers extending in arcs and curves, bends, luminous warps and displacements, forever fading, forever fizzling, dropping seeds,     manufacturing more cool, way cool universes, antiverses.

fork

To begin with what happens when saying fork in English, when a native speaker, to limit1 1to be dealt more fully later although fullness and limit may seem opposed unless

contemplating a situation, such as existence, that is full of limits, which perhaps would be a waste of an opportunity to be full; an existence full of limits just outright seems incapable of exploiting fullness, well, fully. Of late, limit has taken on a link (difficult to limit or prevent associations when information is electrically imprinted in a neural network, the apparently simultaneous deployment of soft anchors to multiple neural information hubs, attaching another facet to each info group (soft because of their plasticity, ability to be reworked, to bend, to expand). More research is needed here, more experimentation which certain funding sources would want to limit to non- human subjects, fearing monsters before the trials conclude with, ideally, near-perfect methods and interventions that control how information is processed in the brain, maybe even a junk section that the limited thinker could empty through a programmable sequence of blinks and grunts. It would be great to see something emptying from the brain’s disposal portal, to see a stream of junk info flowing out of a head into a sewer (the electrical discharge associated with emptying the junk bin perhaps could be amplified with some small —I’m thinking nano—device implanted somewhere in the nervous system, allowing the discharge to be simulated visually and/or sonically—maybe technology developed from the work that has resulted in the vOIce project Seeing with Sound in which the totally blind can see: http://  www.seeingwithsound.com/).

a term which isn’t exactly double-edged, as native3 has more than two edges, so is crystalline in structure, each edge further edged as magnification, beyond this text focus, can reveal; but I do mean specifically two edges, and the doubling of edge-intensity, so sharper effects17 are achieved— even though positioning on the edge might be problematic, the apparently increased opportunity to fall off that edge, even if edge is a nod to the progressive—and such a fall is particularly problematic since no drop-off range has been indicated, so it would be a fall off the edge into nothing, and this is not the place, no matter how intense—or edged—the interest becomes to fall into a discussion of the physics and philosophical implications of a fall into something defined as nothing, nothing indicating some form of negative space even though landing in negative space is exactly where the use of native also arrives, negative as in derogatory, negative as in less than zero, outside of the range of what can be detected by the unassisted senses (including assistance with anti-discrimination legislation).8

8consider the less-than-zero position in society of Ralph Ellison’s Invisible Man

who says in the prologue:

I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me…That invisibility to which I refer occurs because of a peculiar disposition of the eyes of those with whom I come in contact. A matter of the construction of their inner eyes, those eyes with which they look through their physical eyes upon reality.

Those sensitive (I mean me and others) might perceive (the perception encasing what is perceived in a reality, perception treating the object of perception as fact in the manner of its actual [in the fact of the manner of its] imprinting into neural networks where imprint sorting along a reality gradient does not occur) misuse in the usage being risked here;

a native speaker then, someone speaking a language as a first language of that speaker in a location where that language is commonly spoken, the language of the country of the person’s birth, even if the language of this country is not the native language of that country, meaning not the first or original language of that country, but an imported language, as in a non-indigenous species that thrives (possibly via chokehold) in new surroundings whose threats successful against other species, perhaps other native species, are no threats to the transplant, so to speak English in North America is not to speak the language native to North America. The native languages, to use another out-of- fashion, out-of-taste, pretty much out-of-any-redeeming-value value of native, not even a redeeming mirage; the native languages of North America would be the languages of the native populations or savages, the uncivilized, designations easier to make if the tongue is forked, split,9 able to speak from both sides of the mouth simultaneously,

9the forked or split tongue suggests the possibility of torture technique to carry out the splitting, the work of single or double-edged splitters, such as the magic used to split Anderson’s Little Mermaid’s fish tail, reverberations and echoes of the split experienced each time she walks, splitting again the consequences of her decision into knives and forks, utensils that are means to access something, their purpose being to assist with access, as in extending access to higher social classes through use of the right fork with each course of the meal.

to state and contradict simultaneously, to juxtapose, to increase the likelihood of consistent indication of the presence of alternative, to more authentically represent the existence of multiplicity of meaning, to simulate justice through pointing to more than one way, to be pro-choice of expression, to be indecisive, unable or unwilling to commit to a single path, to extend the tongue’s pickup ability through adding functionality similar to chopsticks, the forked tongue is also

able to wrap its two serpent-prongs or tines around a single chopstick or similar stem so as to form a mouth-borne caduceus, a figure associated with healing; a forked tongue may also become a plaited tongue, a fashion statement in word and appearance.

To fork is to have more than one way to go, to split, to increase options, each one of which may be referred to as a prong or tine. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to create a system of bifurcations, possibly to choose a particular avenue of tine for some period of time. To fork is to use a fork, possibly to access something and make what is accessed useable by decreasing distance from what is accessed and the user of the fork. To fork is to lift. To fork is to dig into and possibly separate or filter with the branches or prongs. There is definitely the likelihood of loss, through the branches or prongs, of some portion of what is being accessed, what is being forked up. To fork is to support with the fork. To fork is to be at the location or to the location where something splits into more parts. To split is to divide into more parts; the earthquake forks the house, the bridge, the road. The coroner forks the cadaver in an autopsy. The broken bone is a forked bone. A yodel is a forking note. A tree is a bifurcating system of branches. A root system is a bifurcating system of branches. The bifurcated mandrake. A bifurcating system is a forking system. Each evolutionary branch and sub-branch is an evolutionary fork or sub-fork. What a fork manages to lift is a forkful even if the fork is not at maximum lift capacity. The arm and hand system is a forking system. The digits or fingers of the hand are bifurcations or tines, usually articulated tines; a bird’s foot, the articulated robotic hand of The Terminator;10 the articulated robotic claw in those grab-a-toy mechanical gyp-boxes such as was in the lobby of my local Chi-chi’s before closure and is still in the lobby of my local branch (fork) of the Quality 16 cinema chain (forked system) where Limited Fork Poetics11 was born. Tyne12 Daly is       being inducted right now into a branch of the fork hall of fame. The twin (or two-pronged) towers

of the World Trade Center system had a system of exterior forks as part of the structural and aesthetic integrity of the WTC.13

10 A film in three, to date, parts or tines (forks) featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger in a branch (or fork) of his career as the title character, from a fork of future that is also a fork of past, who attempts create an alternative tine of future by using a present moment (the now in which the movie takes place) as a bifurcation point

12Tyne Daly played “Mary Beth Lacey,” a detective on the television crime drama “Cagney and Lacey”; her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame is marked by five bifurcation points (locations to which forking has arrived and/or locations from which forking can proceed). Tyne is the name of a river system in England. A tributary or branch of a river may be considered a tine of the river; such a river is forked. A fork in a road is a bifurcation point, a location where a road or segment of a road splits into at least one additional segment. Tyne is considered a variation, or branch, of Tine which is considered a branch or bifurcation of Martina and Tina.

Tine is the name of a Norwegian dairy producer also Norway’s biggest food company (at the time of this writing), a name that resonates (a bifurcating gesture or movement; the rippling water forks; branches of a forking system need not be straight and need not remain straight if they are or become straight for some length of time) in Norway as reference to a bentwood box used in the 17th century and later for carrying and storing food, primarily butter and cheese.14, 15

The eating utensil fork can be unforgiving, can bully the

steak, the chicken, the prime rib; the eating utensil fork can hold the meat in place, prevent it from sliding on the smooth surface of a plate so that big meat can be cut done to pieces of a size easy to handle and swallow; the larger incarnation is a carving fork that holds in place bigger meat that will be cut, dissected into individual servings; scissors17 are on an evolutionary branch of the fork family.

This consideration of fork has been forking in order to consider fork; this commentary has forked as literary device; when not a verb, when not involved in activity (see flux), when a noun, a fork is commonly a device or tool. The tines of a fork system need not be in direct

contact with the handle or concept but can be; the branches of the fork may be linked to it remotely or through metaphor. There is no maximum number of tines that a fork may have. A fork may have both direct and indirect tines attached to it. Tines need not be linear. Each tine may support multiple bifurcation points. A maze or labyrinth is a forking system. The space between tines may be wide or narrow. Whether wide or narrow, the fork may lose something or some part of something to the spaces between. When the space between tines is sufficiently small, it may not be possible to perceive the presence of any space between the tines without the aid of instruments calibrated to measure on the scale of gap. When the space between tines is imperceptible on a scale of human aided or unaided perception, the fork may be considered as and may function practically as a shovel. A shovel plays less a role in flux than does fork. A snow shovel is usually a device to lift snow. A snow fork is a device or instrument that measures properties of snow.18A snow fork could also be a fork made of snow or a fork in which some of the tines are snow-covered for some period of time.

18 See a snow fork here: Toikka oy

and read about how the snow fork functions.19 19 Footnotes are tines and sub-tines

Many dead-ends are also tines.

A conjoined twin is a forked twin.

HD DVD’s and Blu-Ray discs are tines, one of which may remain open and likely to produce more tines, one of which may become a dead end.

A circular closed tine may also be hoop, ring, loop, feedback loop; a system of at least two closed tine loops can also be used to indicate infinity or the bones of a bow tie. Apple Computer’s address: One Infinite Loop is a fork of grab, the tines so close together they seem one, a fist, a forkful that is a handful, a hand closed around what a fork has grasped and not letting go; a palm reader reads forks, a palm reader navigates forks, a palm tree is a binary fork system, as are most trees: bifurcating roots20 and bifurcating branches,21 the apple, fig, coconut; fruit as bulbous tines, grapes as bulbous tines in clusters, wine as bulbous tines liquefied; the nervous system is a forking system as is My Galactic Octopus,22 as is the nervous system of an octopus, as is an octopus.

20 A sewer system forks.

21 A ventilation system forks.

22 My Galactic Octopus was a selection in the 2007 Venturous Vanguard Film Festival and may be watched now on the forkergirl channel:

flux

Sounds like the material itself, the word for the substance that is flux, a noun, an object whose shape is not nearly as defined as the word, the fluidity of the nature of flux, the elasticity of flux, the plasticity, the looseness, the space between the components of flux, the shape of generality, at the very least an advanced form of flax, an easily accomplished mutation, shape-shifting root of shape-shifting, and how lucky that this turn at this bifurcation point or fork is a turn toward an enabler of mutation, the constant state of flux or activity; the motion that so far, the universe seems to be riding, shockwaves forking out in every direction noting the centerlessness of flux, reverberations of the big bang or of whatever the event was that got things moving, movement that has not ceased, an overriding shimmy, the collective aggregated wobble-states, not inertia, the band Newton Flux, the establishment of cycles, the sense of travel, intrinsic wanderlust, have existence: will travel, will move; glow and luminosity as movement, the speed of light, time, chaos theory, vibration, strings, sound, flux sounds like an energy drink, the energy, stamina to keep up, keep moving, how dynamic existence is, tireless, barhopping, name of a nightclub, name of a computer program, of the language to make the program do something, a flux of cards indicates a player adept in bluffing, a name of a placebo, a synonym for synthesis, brand name for the latest fake fat, a transit system: we are in flux, the transitions, the transitory stations in the movement arcs revealed when an action is revealed in slow motion; the transitions, the transitory movement revealed when inaction is revealed speeded up; flux a time-lapse system that moves mountains, the shape of the universe, in flux: cyclic, a periodic bit of flux moving in the substance flux is a comet, name of a future system of space travel, of the vehicle that travels deep space, another name for dark matter, to be in transition, the name for transitory existence, the breakdown of radioactive elements, where one is and remains while advancing by halves in Zeno’s Paradox, free-formed and reforming place, continuous change, the body is in flux, the economy is in flux, gas prices are in flux, political climates are on flux, the global climate is in flux, the rain forest is in flux, national boundaries are in flux, Palestine is in flux, Israel is in flux, morals are in flux, test scores are in flux, technology is in flux, flux is in flux, a physiological flowing as in diarrhea, as in dysentery, as in the bursting of the dot com bubble (as if a fork had been stuck in it), the tumbling as in a clothes dryer: the clothes tumble in flux, the pattern of movement of debris in a vortex, the organized bait ball of a flux of sardines, the total electric or magnetic field passing through a surface, the flux mixed with a substance to lower its melting point, to melt: to go to flux, a flux of snowmen in the January thaw, a sad flux of Arctic and Antarctic ice, glacial flux, the process by which an event occurs, polite reference to promiscuity, some flux is also agitation, to be unable to rest, to stop, to cease to exist altogether; in flux, unable to get out of flux to be nothing, to not change form, to not decompose, to not aggregate, to not clump (the curdling of the universe into clusters and clumps of stars, star systems), to not smear, to do and be nothing, denial of an ending, grand procrastination, flux-tamer: a girdle, a shaper that forces a limit on midriff and abdominal bulge, brassiere, skin that changes shape as you do, the means through which that which is without intrinsic motion moves, what is in or on the car, in or on the earth, in or on the galaxy, in or on the universe, to stand still and move through time, the flux paradox: to move and go nowhere, synonym for the popping of static, for particle acceleration, swarm, dance: involuntary and voluntary forms, jitterbug, jittery bugs, pulses, moving from one to another, partnerships, relationships, ins and outs, pollination, propagation, a propulsion system, Æon Flux (2005, film, moving picture): Æon Flux is the assassin that has been assigned by the underground rebels to change the course of Mankind, forever.

limited

…for it is known that there are boundaries whether or not the exact nature of a boundary is known at any given moment or can be known at some specified moment; indeed, the abilit y t o s pe c if y a mome nt demonstrates a means of isolating a moment, of focusing on a moment, to discard what is not part of a specified moment, to exclude that which is not part of the moment being considered, to be able to exert parameters of confinement, to filter, to distill, to deal with specified parts, to develop and apply rules of focus, rules of concentration, parameters of inclusion, to be unable to exceed something, to be at capacity, not possible to go further, the inadequacy of knowledge, just short of cure, finite cap to any number of infinities within the borders, the point beyond which there is nothing, the privilege of being on the other side of nothing, exclusive, only for those with certain specifications, qualifica tions, restricted, location of power, wealth, pulls out all the stops, makes few stops along the trip, the laws that limit, that curb power, owners of a company legally responsible for no more than the capital invested, cannot be exceeded, the pinnacle, the best, for once and for all, the best film (etc.) to remain the best each year until a new film stretches the limit, raises the bar, otherwise, Shakespeare wins Nobel prize for literature year after year after year, the line between possible and i m p o s s i b l e , p e r m i s s i b l e a n d prohibited, a limit can be in flux, new data can push, revise, reassign limits, the limit of one circumstance is not necessarily the limit of any other circumstance, a limit may be shared, may be disputed, a speed limit can be

exceeded, often with consequences, to exceed the limit of the speed of light is to have to rethink ideas that have exceeded the appropriate limits or brakes easily placed on ideas, becoming fundamental concepts instead, the foundation of other truths of existence, to be limited: to be without much talent or promise, consigned to be pretty much the way it is now, in need of air, water, nutrients, limited to need something outside of self.

mezzy

first off: variation of mezze: a Mediterranean appetizer because there is always hunger,

some of which is for the mezzy of existence, for essence, for the exceeding of apparent limits, for a way to stretch, for exquisite, for elegant, for any purpose, the spiritual mezzy, the mezzy art as a means of elevation, the physical mezzy, visible architecture, structures, houses of mezzy evidence, a restaurant in Oakland, the mezze of poetry: the endless feast for the insatiable appetite for meaning, luminous resonance, toward zenith, little bits of tasty treats to please the palate, syllables, stanzas, the delight of poam, planned or impromptu, get some mezzy here: The Mezzy Factor, here: The Mezzy           Factor continues, and here: The Inevitable Mezzy of Poetry; the mezzy of ability to locate and taste the delicious, to have no significant limit to how much mezzy can be tolerated, to feast today, to feast now and be full, extended, ascending, zenith-bound only to have the sun set, to experience digestion, the extraction of nutrients, shrinkage of the consumed, the bounded, the limited via consumption mezzy, to have room for more mezzy, to make room for more mezzy, to need to consume more, to be unable to exhaust the mezzy supply, to be limited to seeking, desiring mezzy, popular mezze dishes include: babaghanoush, tabbouleh, rocket salad (salatat jarjir), kibbeh, shanklish, sausages that are treasure chests opened with bites, mezzy menus that are on tables of content, search results such as the menu of mezzy results when Tokyo Butter opens, the Song there, the mezzy that sings, Mr. Wilson’s Cabinet of Wonders, Everything that Rises, Andrew Zimmern’s bizarre foods, the taste of everything, when mezzy morsels rot, when mezzy morsels decompose, the result is more mezzy, maggot pilgrims come to mezzy the mezzy, it cannot get putrid enough to completely wreck the mezzy, oh instead it can putridly enhance, there is the mezzy of putrefaction, the toxic is an edible idea, the mezzy of idea, taste of whole Google earth, whole shebang food, what is possible to be forked, a mezzy is a forkful, the engine, the power of the universe, the fuel and the fuel burner is a mezzy cooker, whatever exists is a         mezzy cook, to catch snowflakes on the tongue, to run through hordes of fireflies and locusts with the mouth open is to be mezzy ready, mezzy receptive, and a little bit of a beautiful fool.

scale

It’s about time to fork this into perspectives, about time to weigh and determine what’s present, what’s active according to perspectives accessible without devices and with devices designed to extend (within the limits of their making) what the senses can access, it’s time to scale this, remove those lime deposits, the tartar on teeth, the tiles on butterflies, moths, fish, preparing them for something else, to be of more use on a human, a specific cultural perspective, let’s supply context, a way to order, a musical sequence, order of magnitude, duration, to interpret, a way to check the reasonableness, a table of feasibility, the various tracts and tracks of time, relativity of perspective, dry skin, a basic feather, to scale: to remove scales, to cross scale quickly, to move by powers of ten, to use metaphor as a tool to cross scale, seeking symmetry, seeking archetypal patterns on multiple scales, the repetition of form in the universe, the redundancy of basic forms with which to build endless variety, distribution, graphs, maps, diagrams, the Mandelbrot set, scale models, in proportion, chains, justice, measure, relative size, enlarge, shrink, fractals, the repetition of propagation, scale, rate of change, saturation, the temperature scale, increments of measure, processing units, local events on a local scale, magnification reveals scale toward the smaller, toward the larger, telescope, microscope, tele-scale, micro-scale, impact, determination of significance, insignificance and the relative meaning, impact of these determinations on various and across scales, a tool for setting balance, tone, scale factor for the expansion of the universe, for the collapse, dimensions, the boundaries of accountability, obesity monitor, a scale factor multiplies, the perception of wow intensified, multiplied as Grant Williams as The Incredible Shrinking Man shrank away, dissipated, the rate: scale of his dissipation correlated to the rate: scale of expansion of his awareness of the scale of this, his place value, the scale of placement of exponents, superscripts, approximations, greater than, less than enclosures, how something is seen, how something can be seen, alternative representation of the same, of similar information, packaging, integrity manager, what is being considered, what is available, scale of the undertaking, of the menu, ratio, Fujita scale of tornadic activity, Beaufort scale of wind activity (includes reference to horse heads which scale for me a silhouette that embraces fiddles, and the related, on that scale, treble clef of seahorse), the Saffir-Simpson scale of hurricane intensity, to be scales, to be evaluated, rated, assigned a relative position, family of man (includes these forks: women, children, ~97% of chimpanzee DNA).

simultaneity

Stop right here

Simultaneity should not be last

If simultaneity exists, it is not last

So while a linear scale managed progress through the layout of these definitions, in truth, fork, flux, limited, mezzy, scale, simultaneity existed concurrently

on different scales, at different rates of changes, different levels of perceptibility, different and multiple locations; all have been present in some form(s) in some location(s).

The pattern of distribution of these elements is not necessarily linear, but any flux portion forked for examination may be perceived or momentarily limited to parameters of investigation in which a linear assessment makes sense and on the scale of circumstances being considered, linear behavior manifests, holds true for calculations and observations while at the same time, in a larger consideration, on a different scale, assessments may need adjusting, for what works, what makes sense, what has truth and mezzy on a particular scale may fail, that failure offering a mezzy of failure, as scale shifts, what makes sense shifts, what has truth shifts, mezzy shifts; the mezzy constant is the existence of, the persistence of a form of mezzy.

Is it that the forms of what exists on each scale on which something exists are necessarily changing? No.

Just watching it can change its behavior.

It probably has behavior without being watched.

But one possibility of simultaneity is that of consensus, that of conspiring to maintain the simultaneous existence itself; the collective exertion of belief in the shared existence projects that existence, that limit of what is; the mezzy of collaboration, for everything existing to manifest some element, some evidence (presently detectable by others or not, whose development of tools to detect presences is usually constrained by the ways in which those developers have been shaped by perceiving to seek [perceptible] evidence) of presence on some scale for some period of time, measured according to some perspective, on some scale so that there is no universal time for the simultaneous manifestation of presence.

Simultaneity then suggests occurrence during a shared unit of time, the length or duration, the experience of the shared unit differing according to the perspective of the constituents sharing the unit of time; it isn’t even the same time on earth, separation of hours, of degree, scale of light, darkness; for some hours (relative to a computation of hour in this solar system on this planet) of a day (relative to a computation of day in this solar system on this planet in this galaxy in this universe) it isn’t even the same day on earth, all inhabitants of earth do not use the same calendar; from each scale, from each perspective, there is a different implication of simultaneity.

I do like the starburst model of simultaneous acceleration of the known universe, the universe in which there is some trusted evidence of occupancy, other universes, which may exist simultaneously, at this moment (scale of time) existing speculatively, existing in hopes, wishes, imagination so is real there, in the realm of limits of mind, existing if not

exactly parallel, then with the external mostly-three-dimensional (it seems) universe; I do like the shape of that more- or-less uniform expansion, the idea of growth in all directions, with little detectable discrimination, as eager a move toward heavens as toward hells; I do like the distribution of growth occurring as air imparts growth to a balloon, and while there may not be precisely equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, if the balloon model of universe is accurate; while there may not be equitable distribution of debris if and when the balloon bursts, I envision a mezzy of curved, of eccentric fork tines; I envision a luminous chrysanthemum of petals and flowers extending in arcs and curves, bends, luminous warps and displacements, forever fading, forever fizzling, dropping seeds,     manufacturing more cool, way cool universes, antiverses.One Word book
