Hi. How are you Today?  I don't know you Mike, or Anyone who is reached
by our Posts on this Server,
may have some form of information on this:

Felix Guattari in Chaosmosis praises subjectivity, and has a say that the
concept may extend to an entire city.

-> The subjectivity of Paris, for example.

I am wondering now about the kind of thought - process which led Guattari
posit 'subjectivity' so far in the realm of 'haecceities' : is it something
traces thereof could be found in earlier works, as ATP?
can we have an Archaelogical Documentation, a History of the Concept of

 City-Subjectivity     ??

In any case, what (concepts')components' exchanges would enjoy :

--(city) 'subjectivity' --

when we shuffle around

--- (city) 'aura' ---  (Benjamin),

 which has mystical oriented connotations,

and/or        with

 --- (city) 'entity' (Lovecraft) --- ,

 which partakes to a visionary littrature , and remains often a source of
 for the likes of graphic inventions in 3d we call such, 'concept art'.
