On Lupine Vision

What is the character of Lupine vision?

First, it is defined by curiosity. This curiosity is not intrinsic to the Lupine inner-eye, but to all external things. That is, the curio of all things evokes the actio of Lupine sight. The curio, though diffuse, exists in degrees and derives its intensity from what we call form.

Second, it is defined by fear. Embedded within the inner-eye is a sense of primal terror, that is, terror that it cannot be left unto itself. It is therefore driven to move outside itself as sight, uniting itself to external forms according to the drag of the curio.

Third, it is ordered as a circuit. The Lupine inner-eye desires to ever be outside itself. Form beckons to the Lupine inner-eye through the call of the curio. Lupine sight therefore goes out in order to unite itself to a particular form, returning into itself in order to care for the form.

Fourth, it is ordered according to dyadic symmetry. From the innermost part of the inner-eye, Lupine sight goes out as an ephemeral tone that repeats itself in two soundings: one which is a uniform whirr that oscillates between the audible and nearly inaudible, and the other that cries out as a piercing crack. This latter sounding is that which arouses the attention of whatever form has been laid hold of.
