AN EXPERIMENT IN READING WITH TEMPORAL DIFFERENCES

Approach the books that are available to you at the moment. Spend a moment familiarizing yourself with them, leafing through them or simply being with them.

Read a bit of text to the space and the beings that share it with you. The text can be one that is known or important to you from before, or something you’ve only just encountered.

Listen to the other texts that might be read.

Then, pick one of them and head out into the surroundings. Find an entity or presence, whose temporality is clearly distinct from yours, either due to its short lifespan or its extremely long duration.

Read the text to the entity and see how the temporal disjunction/difference affects your relation to the text.
