multispan logic



faced with two apparently incompatible conceptions of the city, i oscillate between the two attitudes. sometimes i embrace both simultaneously. that's a trick i learned from science fiction, incidentally: "multispan logic," as it was called in zenger's famous novel the mind plateau. it took his hero twenty years of ascetic study in the cloisters of the brothers of aldebaran to master the trick. i've accomplished it in twenty years of reading nova and deep space and solar quarterly. yes: multispan logic. yes. the art of embracing contradictory theses.
