Dwelling

"'To dwell' as a transitive verb--as in the notion of 'in dwelt spaces'; herewith an indication of the frenetic topicality concealed in habitual behavior. It has to do with fashioning a shell for ourselves" [I4, 5] (AP 221)

Dwelling vs Prosthesis
(Heidegger vs. McLuhan--computer displays being projected into dwellings, increasing in size so as to be dwelled in instead of prosthetized.)

Dwelling vs. Benjamin's "Aura" -- the concept of context (con text --> juxtaposition)--see Structure

Connecting with vagrancy, moving, standing still. See Henry Miller Chapter.
