If/when an apple is abstracted to a number – say 1 – then it can be argued that the 1 reflects upon the apple, yes?
However, does it also spectacularise the apple, or the 1 (ie the act of abstraction) or both, or something else, or something else as well – or the spectacle question is irrelevant here – or..?
Is it that spectacle requires meaning provision? I give/create/attach/invest/link/curate/inject meaning – hence by the very fact that we have X meaning X (or Y), then X is a spectacle..? (either of X or Y, or both?)
I think this has something to do with my reflection on ubuweb web of ubu..
