Working hypotheses inherent in the proposal of geometric/fractal writing

Dachs, Ramon

1. Inductive hypothesis:

All possible texts are generated from a limited range of elementary cognitive structures and their combinations, configurations all capable of being represented geometrically (and fractally) and of being formulated algebraically; involving a human mind that can be assimilated to an abstract space in which any intellectual (metalinguistic) process can be analysed topologically.

2. Deductive hypothesis:

Any "geometric writing" is one of the possible realisations of a specific geometric/fractal syntactic configuration of signifiers (A) linked with a specific semantic/topological assortment of signifieds (B). And the resulting "fractal writing" is the sum of the possible realisations of AB.
