THE PRACTICE OF OBSERVING PERMITS ASSEMBLAGE BETWEEN STUFF FROM A PARTICULAR POINT OF VIEW.
RELATIONS ARE DRAWN TO EMPHASIZE CERTAIN CHARACTERISTICS OF THE PLACE FROM WHICH THE OBSERVATION IS CONDUCTED.
ALONG A SYMMETRICAL AXIS A NOTION OF THE DISTANT BEING OBSERVED (perceptual constrains) REDEFINES A NOTION OF THE NEAR
WITHIN SUCH SYSTEM CALCULATIONS CAN BE OPERATED TO REASSOCIATE ALL THE ASSEMBLED STUFF WITHIN A GRID.
THINGS GET FLATTENED JUST LIKE ON A PICTURE BECAUSE OF THE FOCAL POINT



! Even if straight lines don't seem to exist in the immediate environment as we make experience of...

Light rays get deviated by gravitation for instance as they traverse local atmospheric conditions anyway - atmospheric refraction (cant trust anything)

A STRAIGHT LINE IS THE SHORTEST WAY BETWEEN TWO THINGS WHEN WE IDENTIFY A RELATION
sun + (human in StoneHenge) <=> stars + (lens in observatory) <=> server + (client in Network).
Relation means they can exchange information.



Light is information carrier because it transfers a property by a form of energy
warmth from the sun to the plants on the Earth (very hot to ok hot, loss of warmth through distance/time delay)
data from server to client (some packets may get lost through distance/time delay which we work on making insignificant so the relation remains strong)
