I see material as a transit space where the causal mind can enter, land on, grasp, and pass through just like ink moving through Xuan paper. It's the transparent space, like the membrane, where every living cell or entity can act and accelerate, die, and regenerate.

" We live in a world populated by structures – a complex mixture of geological, biological,social, and linguistic constructions that are nothing but accumulations of materials shaped and hardened by history. Immersed as we are in this mixture, we cannot help but interact in a variety of ways with the other historical constructions that surround us,and in these interactions, we generate novel combinations, some of which possess emergent properties. In turn, these synergistic combinations, whether of human origin or not, become the raw material for further mixtures. This is how the population of structures inhabiting our planet has acquired its rich variety, as the entry of novel materials into the mix triggers wild proliferation's of new forms. "
