Surviving Self: The Other American Experiment

We consolidate the 30 modules of the Cogniventive root Self-Discovery Matrix into 27 by combining 2. Causes and 3. Endings into a single movement that we will call 2. The Momentum of Choice. By then bookending the corresponding 3 x 9 Power-Knowledge-Identity Table with transitional 9-module sequences of Be(com)ing, we create a 45 block “Periodic Table of the Self” that will then frame a layered and sequenced narrative for a 5 volume series covering the Story of Addiction in America between 1935 and 2185, moving seamlessly from Uncommon History, through Current Events, and into Speculative Fiction. Expected completion date is 2025.
