Crossing the street: "Linking acts and footsteps, opening meanings and directions, these words operate in the name of an emptying-out and wearing-away of their primary role. They become liberated spaces that can be occupied. A rich indetermination gives them, by means of a semantic rarefaction, the function of articulating a second, poetic geography on top of the geography of the literal, forbidden or permitted meaning. They insinuate other routes into the functionalist and historical order of movement." M. de Certeau, "Walking in the City." In, The Practice of Everyday Life. Berkeley, CA., 1984. p.105.

his feet: "The fundamental interpretation of these footprint characteristics is fairly straightforward. The well-marked ridge between the toes and the rest of the foot is a sure indication that the Sasquatch's toes (if this is indeed a real footprint and not a fake) are much longer, more ape-like, than in man. J. Napier, Bigfoot: The Teti and Sasquatch in Myth and Reality. New York, 1973. p.114.

Protuberances: D. Lewis-Williams, The Mind and the Cave. London, 2002. p.37. "However, what mattered was to represent on the wall the beginnings of creation: the initial seed (the point) appears under the effect of the first vibration (the axis), followed by a second (the arms), giving the four cardinal directions, that is the scene of the Universe; a third furnishes the lower limbs of terrestrial beings, and shows their sex. For a short moment these figures maintain this incomplete appearance which is quite forgotten when the edifice is completed; the sketches have become human beings." M. Griauie, "The Meaning of Negro-African Portraiture." In, R-J Moulin, Editor, Prehistoric Painting. New York,1965.

his guns: "The gun is our mediator with the world and therefore our saviour. The tidings of the gun: such-and-such is outside, have no fear. The gun saves us from the fear that all life is within us. It does so by laying at our feet all the evidence we need of a dying and therefore a living world." J.M. Coetzee, "The Narrative of  Jacobus Coetzee." In, Dusklands. New York 1974.
