Love 11.3

All we have said is rather esoteric. I declare it to be accurate: and to the best of our knowledge, a novel thesis that has yet to be articulated precisely in this way. Yet we have drawn upon, yes of course ironically, Gnosticism, the French line of the primordial and savage, the emergence of the imperium revised within the construction of the new household of the Age of Enlightenment.

But, as a single example (there are many), we may take the idea of the work wife, of the workplace affair. An empirical example of the 21st century human being’s nostalgia for this corecursive flow upon which it is caught, near as it is, to the final demise of the entire coinductive type, of the entire empire/external/body-imperium/internal/body type, that (still we are ironic) end of the universe, before it heads right back to embed itself again in a Roman origin and begin again. People have affairs in the modern workplace, and I venture every one of them takes a Roman form, one of Empire, in contrast to the Enlightnment form of Love and Romance. Yet there is Romance in the Roman/workplace form and Romanicus in the form of the Enlightnement/atomic domestic imperium.
