Yeon is a broad avenue with commercial
traffic barreling both ways. Its feeder streets are crosscut with
railway spurs that disappear into the semi-darkness
of cavernous warehouses, joining the slow-turning
of exhaust fans to the thick odor of grease.
in the yards outside,
mountains of wooden pallets
sharpen their splinters.
At a pace that contrasts with
double-trailer trucks bouncing tons of steel over "crazed
pavement," I guide my bicycle along sidewalks bordered with
weeds, purposefully losing direction, then it was thought that
the transfer of all nervous impulses occurs across the gaps, called
'synapses,' between adjacent nerve cells. But this mechanism turns
out to be of limited importance, being used mainly for muscle contraction.
Most of the signals that come from the brain are transmitted via
peptides emitted by nerve cells sighting a familiar building, instead of tacking that way,
I explore fissured plots further.
