Because milk is nothing more… than perfectly digested blood.”
                                                                                     Hieronymus Mercurialis


Identity
I ask questions about identity because I see the danger of it blurring in my surrounding reality, as a result of “memory decay.”
Body
The body is a physical, psychic, and mental reality, processing past experiences throughout its actions. Its activity in space includes elements of a signal – sign – message and also auto-expression.
