Universal Tissue

I’ve played around with the terms text and context in other posts. Context means woven together, and text means woven.

Weavers’ shop talk (Arquette, 1974), as it were.

I learned today that the word tissue is related to text too. We often talk about the fabric of society, its many textures; but, what about the texture of the universe? What about universal tissue?



Literally, texts “woven together,” interlaced, intertwined, as it were. Another metaphor, culture. Both rounded up to the nearest thousand in the social fabric of meaning, the ethno-looms of sense making.
