The progression of things challenges broadly conceived notions of history, and it's requisite conceptions of progress, growth and transcendence through myth building, as a linear phenomenon.

By presenting a performative model of these circular constants, my aim is to posit an alternative to history as linear progression, with it's necessary critical ocularcentrism, linguistic hegemony, and linear narrative tendencies.
Absent this neatly organized progression of time and history, what other kinds of narratives are available to us? Where does the pre-ordained logic of our linguistic system reach its limit in terms of the kind of narrative it is capable of telling, narratives which may rise and fall within an entirely 'other' realm?
