                                                                                 Systema Ptolemaicum  1991

Systema Ptolemaicum


In walking through the temple, quiet and alone, reflecting on the succession of thoughts that you would like to retain; they will associate with the structure of the walls you are moving along. In this way it is possible to bring together a great number of ideas that seem disparate and can nevertheless become traces of this cartography that you are producing.               


Systema Ptolemaicum 2

“En marchant dans le temple, tranquille et seul, refléchissant au déroulement des     pensées que tu aimerais conserver:  elles associeront à la structure des murs que tu es en train de longer. Il est ainsi possible de rassembler un grand nombre d’idées qui semblent disparates et qui peuvent néamoins devenir traces de cette cartographie que tu réalises.”

The Almagest



“I know that I am mortal and the creature of a day; but when I search out the massed wheeling circles of the stars, my feet no longer touch the earth, but, as if in the presence of Zeus himself, I take my fill of ambrosia, the food of the gods.”



The Almagest 2 “Je sais que je suis mortel, la créature d’un jour; mais quand je pars à la recherche de rouages constitués par la multitude d’étoiles, mes pieds ne touchent plus terre, et comme si j’étais en presence de Zeus lui-même, je m’emplie d’ambroisie, la nourriture des dieux.”
