A mighty oak, its branches lopped all round, [Aeneas] plants on a mound, and arrays in the gleaming arms stripped from Mezentius the chief, a trophy to you, great Lord of War. Unnatural pryings into the unthinkable. Let us make a first foray into those strange appearances. We do not, therefore, encounter place as disembodied subjects, occupying an incidental relation to our surroundings. Here, in this human world, certain things that are valued and hold meaning stand before other things in an interchangeable relationship.
We see less, but this seeing-less does not mean we are obscured by what is missing. Neither of these approaches—the realist or the constructivist—is com- plete in itself.
Habits in place, too, can nullify or illuminate our experience of time. In a word, the places in which we live, live in us. The emphasis on genesis here is vital.
