BODY DOUBLE BODY DOUBLED BODY DOUBLE BODY DOUBLED

Fitting for a heterotopia’s head of state, Ghost Island’s king has two bodies. This is the start of my exploration of the phenomenological condition of the king.

DOUBLED BODY DOUBLE BODY DOUBLED BODY DOUBLE BODY… (mobius strip title)

The king has two bodies. For real though. He has one mind and two bodies. They are not the same body. There is no metaphor. The king has two literal physical separate bodies that are his.

The king does not have one main body and then a supplementary secondary body. He has two individual and co-equal bodies that are both his like my body is mine or like your body is probably yours. They are two distinct bodies that he inhabits and is fully.

One might be tempted to make a kind of tripartite schematic in which the mind or soul is the center term and that in some way controls the two bodies. This is not a correct or proper representation. The king cannot separate body and subject or body and self. Like us, his self and body are the co-productive of each other- intermixed and inseparable.

    Our king is also a world-champion in doubles tennis and can often be found in his study playing pong or streetfighter and then high-fiving himself when he wins.

    Also, his high-fives shatter spacetime.
