Look through the limited fork as through an adjustable, adaptable, flexible lens. There are obvious blindspots: 

the tines themselves and/or spaces between tines.


This is useful.

This is a reminder that information, perception, 

tools used to understand and discover 

are not yet infallible, 

are not yet capable of capturing everything 

or the entirety of anything

only versions, possibilities

that may be true, restricted truths

in the contexts of the encounters, 

observations, participations and exchanges.

Even the truth of error,

the existence, possibility,

and the ability to use

error, deception

as foundations for realities,

sometimes starling beautiful

realities, fragile realities

threatened by powerful frames

of other realities'

Shifting (any part of) 

the limited fork lens system 

exposes, creates, activates 

other configurations


(just as plausible

just as incomplete).

This adjustable, adaptable, flexible 

lens system 

also emphasizes

the temporary nature, 

and possible beautiful nature,

possible ugly nature 

of things, 

for the flexibility, adaptability, 

and adjustability 

is kaleidoscopic, 

and what is forked 


kaleidoscopic extensions

Think (just for now) of a framing system 

as outlines of petals of a rose (system).


Rose refers to structures that are arrangements 

and configurations of a set of petals, 

a group of frames; 

a frame that frames a group of frames.  

Each petal is a framing system. 

The frames in the group need not be identical. 

An arriving insect enters a frame of petal, 

alters a frameof petal, extends a frame of petal, 

may interact with multiple frames. 

This rose multiverse 

(each petal a universe, connected yet different) 

can fold compactly, universes in nutshells, 

in a single atom so to speak, 

a rosebush 

as a frame of rose multiverses, 

a rose garden as a frame of rosebush multiverses 

and realities.  

And the rosebush system can unfold, 

can blossom, revealing 

more realities inside realities inside realitites.





Start with something you think you know.

What would/could happen if you frame what think you know differently? 

 packaged it differently

or even tried
not to frame it at all?



(on some scale
in some location
for some duration of time)

What is the nature 

of the framing 

system (in use in 

a certain context?  

In another)?

What are the properties

of the framing system?

—How do you know this?

Which framing systems of knowing are you using?

How consistent?

How variable?

is the framing system?

What is the source 

of the framing system? 

Why do you use it? Did you search for 

and choose it?  

What are boundaries

 of the frame?  

Is the frame universal?

What is the range of effectiveness of the framing system?

Is the frame visible?

Under which circumstances?

When is the frame not visible?

How important is visibility/invisibility of the frame?

Does it shape 

what occurs within it?

What shapes it?

What are limits 

of what the frame 

can be made to do, can be made to become?

Is the frame part of what is framed 

all the time? 

any time?

On what scale(s)?

In which location(s)? 

when the frame is activated?  

How does 

the frame frame?

How many ways 

can you find 

to frame what you experience?

How  is frame validity determined?

Is it possible to have framelessness?  

How to accomplish framelessness?  

How are you defining framelessness?  

Is that definition 

also a frame?

What are purposes of the/a frame?

How many kinds 

of framing systems 

do you use? 

Are you part of?  

How many can you shuffle?  

What does it mean to shuffle frames?  to juggle frames? to break frames? reassemble frames recycle frames?

When what is framed is magnified, 

what happens 

to the frame?

When what is framed shrinks, 

what happens

 to the frame?

What is the frame's role in magnification or shrinkage or apparent unchanging status of what is framed?

Is the frame  controlling? controlled?

What happens/

can happen 

when frames 


And when a frame is framed?

How are frames 


How durable 

are types

of frames?

Are some framing systems aesthetically appealing?

Is an aesthetically appealing (a type of framing system, by the way) framing system,
a better framing system?
