Rear: a burgeoning energy that is held in shape in the material world as a rise, or the intersection of rearing energy and persistence in time. A mountain rears up on the horizon, a horse rears up on a parade ground, and Christ reared up in history (and on his cross, which is the embodiment of immanent energy at the point at which it reveals the earth to energy too.) The common usage of the term ‘rear’, a description of the back part of a body or an object, is a secondary observation about how objects that are followed tend to rear up on the horizon, and objects that follow tend to act suddenly (or rear), as one doesn’t have eyes in the back of one’s head to see just what they’re up to back there.
