“Animals are divided into: (a) those that belong to the emperor; (b) embalmed ones; (c) those that are trained; (d) suckling pigs; (e) mermaids; (f) fabulous ones; (g) stray dogs; (h) included in the present classification; (i) those that tremble as if they were mad; (j) innumerable ones; (k) those drawn with a very fine camel’s-hair brush; (l) etcetera; (m) those that have just broken the flower vase; (n) those that at a distance resemble flies.” The Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge, Jorge Luis Borges
_Capitals of Europe are in point of splendour after which begins the agony | here its splendour has the freshness of dawn.
Scenic development that establishes a set of control exercises over inanimate matter, intercepting them, normalizing their space, imposing an organization by manipulation and violence along a flow of coercion by the flesh.
