These are the axes:

1

Bodies are inherently valid

2

Remember death 

3

Be ugly

4

Know beauty

5

It is complicated

6

Empathy

7

Choice

8

Reconstruct, reify

9

Respect, negotiate

These are true:

1

the thing is the thing 
this is the thing
this is also the thing
the thing exists inside my head and inside your head and on the page and the thing is the key and also the thing
a thing is a hole in a thing it is not

2

beauty is so rare a thing, Pound sang
so few drink at my fountain

3

is fixity the thing
is consistency the thing
is there a difference between sincerity and authenticity
are those things marked by fixity and consistency

4

change is the thing

5

this exists inside this frame but it also exists inside this other frame

6

the dragon is the frame and the gaze is the frame and control is the frame

7

this is the intention and this is the reception and this is the important part even when this is not the important part

8

this is the transubstantiation this is the transmutation this is the transition this is the trans
this is not the cis
