Hello again *, This is all good stuff; and I can clearly see you mapping the terrain you are seeking to highlight. Yes - to the periphery, the boundary, the edge of things. That, perhaps - in one sense, at least - is where one is likely to stumble upon a concentration of 'noise'. Fuzzy thoughts are needed; a certain blurring of the vision; squinting of the eye; some method by which elements of classical logic can be used to illuminate quantum logic, if you will. I'm minded here of Borges - for his admix of supposed truth with supposed fiction, his disrespect for categories and categorical thinking. He, for me, was the first effective poststructuralist. From his node flows, say, Derrida, Lyotard, Foucault. And yes, postmodernism is flagged here. But instead of flocking to that, I say flock to Borges. Best wishes, *
