Still more interbeing

 Also since I mentioned the phrase "becoming animal" from Faber, as well as the term interbeing, also recall this thread on that topic. A brief quote:

"This is a book about becoming a two-legged animal, entirely a part of the animate world whose life swells within and unfolds all around us.  It seeks a new way of speaking, one that enacts our interbeing with the earth rather than blinding us to it.  A language that stirs a new humility in relation to other earthborn beings, whether spiders or obsidian outcrops or spruce limbs bend low by the clumped snow.  A style of speech that opens our senses to the sensuous in all its multiform strangeness."
Continued from the last 2 posts, also recall this thread which never took off on Mickey's article regarding cosmological postmodernism, using Whitehead, Deleuze, Derrida and Keller. Of note here is this quote:

"The rhizome is a system that 'connects any point with any other points....A rhizome has no beginning or end; it is always in the middle, between things, interbeing, intermezzo....the concept of the rhizome implies that roots and rhizomes are intimately intertwined....what seem to be mutually exclusive opposites for arborescent thinking seem mutually implicative for rhizomatic thinking'" (36).
