Statement of Bias

I take a position that is defined as only partly Western, only partly founded in Western assumptions; this position is superstitious: that is, it stands apart or after and bears witness from a distance. My particular superstition, or place to stand, is the ideal of an alphabet that is at once more primitive than, and yet postmodern to, the perfected Greek/Latin alphabet on which our civilization if founded. From the perspective of this alphabet, the primitive Hebrew alphabet, or what we can call the alephtav, there is no distinction between fiction and science. Holding in suspense the possibility of any fixed truth or determinate meaning gives, I suggest, a more powerful and appropriate method or perspective from which to view most of what happens to people and in culture through the modern media, especially the modern medium of the World Wide Web.
