GSAPP F'05. PARALLEL + UNEQUAL URBAN OPERATIONS

Despite well-intentioned rhetoric, we are not all created equal. We lead parallel lives—which collide, entangle, unravel, and occasionally impede and reconfigure each other’s desires. We process multiple paths of information, simultaneously and from discrete perspectives. We operate in diverse theaters of existence, and collate actions and information on compound, polyscalar fronts. “Equal” implies identical in dimension, quantity, quality, value or standard; it means having the same privileges, rights, status and opportunity as others. Add the prefix “un-“, and we anticipate the reverse—not the same, not evenly matched, variable in quality and character— attributes reflective of the inherent imbalance of circumstance and irregular individual maneuvers of domestic behavior.
