Manifesto

1) all theory is transient & after the fact of writing
2) writing never eliminates the need for action but action can sometimes eliminate the need for writing
3) where action eliminates the need for writing research can function to discover new uses for potentially outdated forms & techniques
4) where writing & action are necessary research can function to find new ways to unify them
5) all manifestos are simply statements of progressive awareness
6) all research is symbiotic & cannot exist separate from writing
7) no form or technique exists separate from what is said
