Hinge Theory

Hinge is, by its intrinsic vita, a form of language architecture exploding with immense poetic power and subtlety in revealing the interconnectedness of ideas, realizations and creative unfoldings. It is a dawn breaking forth with an uncountable multiplicity of rays, combustible, energizing, precipitous, and fertile. One takes a stallion ride on the language with Hinge, rather than herding words like cattle into a barn. Persons, minds, bodies, spirits, and souls inhabit language, and are cohabited by language. Hinge describes a meme as more than idea: it is a living Word riding on the journey of the genes, mutating them and guiding them toward their ultimate incarnate destiny. Hinge is a meme with the capacity to operate in an unlimited number of directions simultaneously. Language is known by circularity and fertility; it does not proceed out of the mouth of the Creator to return void. It flows out, back, and creates, in small circles, in concentric circles, in overlappings, eddies and tides. Hinge takes what has been viewed as a two dimensional sea, and expands its reality to four dimensions, including Time.
