How may perhaps the standard experience of the culinary be multiplied right into a philosophy of 'culinary materialism' in which synthesis, experimentation, and operations of combining and mixing take priority over research, subtraction and axiomatisation?

Drawing on assets starting from anthropology to chemistry, from airtight alchemy to modern arithmetic, 'Collapse VII: Culinary Materialism' undertakes a trans-modal test in culinary pondering. quite a lot of individuals together with philosophers, cooks, artists, historians,and synaesthetes research the cultural, commercial, physiological, alchemical or even cosmic dimensions of cookery, and suggest new versions of culinary inspiration for the longer term.

Consider the 'cosmic cooking processes' that gen­ erate the universe as differentiated, before there is 'chemistry proper') : If gravitation precedes heat and elements (the general requirements of material chem­ istry and cooking processes) , then it deepens the chemical horizon, from that of processes and matter to that of the continuum itself: Gravitation creates a new form of modality in the universe, outside the qualita­ tively homogeneous continuum. Whereas we usually associate physics with the qualitative homogeneity of spacetime, we should note that gravity serves as the universal thermodynamic motor of complexification, and synthesises the 'ingredients' that generate regional contraction or intensification and thus local syntheses.

DAN MELIAMPHY AND NANDITA BISWAS MEllAMPHY develop such a post-geophilosophy, rethinking plan­ etary 'ecology' as an 'ec[h]ology' wherein the thinker is 'translated back into nature' as its echo, and where the planet 'feasts upon itself' . Connecting the ourobouric or ovoid figure of this autophagy to the Nietzschean will-to-power, this ec[h]ology escries the al-chem, the black earth, as a stomachos or 'pit of blackness' - what Guha describes as the 'self-churning' continuum. It is also a vermicular thinking: as the worm translates all things back into black earth (see Darwin's recipe, 31 COLLAPSE VII in the Appendix) , Nietzsche suggests that to be true to the earth is to be retranslated and to retranslate back into the 'terrible ground-text of homo natura' - a 'hideous gnosis' that, once again, involves the poisonous contemplation of one's incorporation into/as anony­ mous process.
