The world comes alive as a collection of singularities. Enchantment includes, then, a condition of exhilaration or acute sensory activity. To be simultaneously transfixed in wonder and transported by sense, to be both caught up and carried away.
We live in a physical world whose properties we have come to know well through long familiarity.
The ordinary is a circuit thats always tuned in to some little something somewhere. A mode of attending to the possible and the threatening, it assesses the resonance of things.
Enchantment as a state of openness to the disturbing-captivating elements in everyday experience. Enchantment as a window onto the virtual secreted within the actual. Enchantment, in the model I am defending, as operative in a world without telos.
