About: a zone of energy that surrounds all things and relativizes them to its own spirit. This energy diminishes with distance until it can no longer capture objects, yet it can old many objects at the same time, each with its own about relationship to the core object and sharing a joint one at the same time. About zones are one of the primary foundations of meaning, held still in the conception that books, for instance, are “about” something. The latinization of about fields into the more observational around fields have been effective at culturally separating meaning from objects and transferring it to observers instead. Both approaches remain useful.
