Humans live in a space, namely our space of humanity. Nobody can survive without being refreshed there, without nourishing themselves there, breathing there. Not only physically!
Human space is beyond the space of the geometrician. It is not abstract and empty but concretely filled with human possibilities and human dynamics. Nevertheless modern geometry can help to give us an image of it. The concept of ‘curvature’ is here particularly relevant.
We know that the Euclidian geometry has a curvature of zero. Parallels will never meet. From a point taken out of a straight line you can draw one parallel and only one.
The `curvature' of modern space, is obviously 'positive'. The parallels always meet. From a point taken out of the immanence no prospect is possible which does not converge finally towards the immanence. A world sums up in immanent enclosure. And this total sum is always larger than…
Another human space, so to speak more on the side of Lobatchev’s geometry, will interest us more particularly. There, the parallels, far from meeting, rather tend to open. From a point taken out of the immanence, another line, of many same vectors, can run ad infinitum. The sum of the total is never as large, often smaller, than Totality.
Human space has an ‘outside’ and an ‘inside’, qualitatively different. Inside the dynamics of thought and action tend to converge in a kind of field of gravitation. Outside these same dynamics diverge in an infinite opening. But the outside does not invite to residence. It calls for adventure!
The human space exists each time as a unique specific space of the human reality as made up in such an area of the world and at such a time of history. A space of the culture made up with its specificities and its originality. A space of the reason made up with its epistemological and pragmatic possibilities and impossibilities. A space of the word made up through philosophies and the letters. A space of the knowledge made up through sciences and the myths. A space of the sensitivity made up through arts, modes, seductions… A space of constructions. A space of innovations. A space of emergences. A space of declines. A space of techniques. A space of networks and communications. A space of confrontations. A space of Eros. A space for beliefs. A space for dreams. A space for projects. A space of values. A space for Utopias…
Each human space - be it personal, social or cultural - integrates and excludes. It integrates what is compatible with its preconditions. It excludes what refuses this integration. Between this integration and this exclusion it plays its originality. Tell me what you include and what you exclude and I will tell you who you are.
