Index of Figures
1. A fractal image is generated by
feeding back the results of an equation into the equation millions of times. (52)
2. A possible genealogy of
co-munication through gifts, language and exchange.
3. Gifts taking the place of gifts in
the definition. (65)
4. 'Is' substitutes for acts of substitution
in the sentence. (68)
5. Masculation: forming the boy's
6. Visualizing Vigotsky's experiment.
7. Also Visualizing Vigotsky's
8. Schematized images of the stages of concept formation.
9. More schematized images of the
stages of concept formation. (90)
10. Taking-over and giving-way at
different scales. (102)
11. Things related to words, words
related to each other. (116)
12. Similar relations of things to words
in the langue, traditional wives and children to husbands and property
to property owners. (118)
13. Participation. (140)
14. Substituting the acts of
substitution inserts a meta moment into the sentence. As the single substitute
for acts of substitution, 'is' becomes very general.
15. Exchange over-takes giftgiving and barter.
16. Gifts flow upwards. (193)
17. Value is given to exchange; gift value becomes invisible.
18. The relationship between products and money and things of a kind and a
word are self-similar at widely different scales.
19. The owner of the money is a human 'one'to whom property is related
as 'many.' Money, the value sample, can be an item of property.
20. Money is the value concept sample, owners are samples for the complex
of property. Money as sample is in the same relation to products as owners
are to property. (213)
21. Money-laborer-owner allows her son-product to be 'named' by phallic
money and gives 'him' away. Buyer gives up phallic money value-sample
and remains 'lacking' but unharmed, with a use-value.
22. Gender roles and the definition coincide, creating self similar images
at the levels of form and content. (233)
23. The reciprocal action of
masculation and the definition spawns social self-similarities.
24. Pointing iconically repeats the
concept process and projects it on the world. (265)
25. God points at Adam, Adam points back.
26. "That is a peach." (268)
27. Competition among the members of the category of index 1's.
28. The Nazi salute is a clear example
of one-many phallic arms. (272)
29. The many point at the one pointer, repeating the concept pattern in
the group dynamic. (273)
30. The repeatability inside the present word is an icon of the
repeatability outside the present word. Language works because we consider
different instances of the same word as a single 'thing.'
31. Counting on our fingers, we point out each finger in turn as the sample 'one.'
32. The gun is a mechanism constructed out of phallically invested indexes
of different sizes. (290)
33. The arrow is an over-taking 'one' pointing at a sample, one out of
the many (E pluribus unum). This indication is not of some product to
exchange but of a living being to kill. (291)
34. Money is the general equivalent.
35. Democracy is embedded in a context made up of other extrinsications of
the concept. (304)
36. Re-presentative government. (305)
37. More replications of
re-present-ation. The many give value to the
substitute gifts as the electorate gives value to
the elected representatives. (306)
38. Social self-similarities (309)
39. God, Christ and the Word. (380)
40. The concept formation process, Old and New Testament.
41. The mystic rose.(420)
42. What the World Wants. (421)
