A mental construct is parallel to a construction found in physical space.
The architectonic, the urban, what we determine to be the natural, or the geologic.
Matter in space accumulates into form through attraction and gravity as thoughts are merged through associations.
Images, places and things coalesce into a whole, comprised of fragments, like bits of sedimentary information, compressing and transforming until falling unto rest.
