Drama. Poetry. African American Studies. "Will Alexander's poetic universe could be a 1 + 1000 surface ('folded-in expanse') imbedded in a 1 + 1000 + X dimensional Historical Space-Time (the 'transverse'), with Ancient-Future Language particles and ?elds trapped on the folded-in expanse while Non-Institutional Unrepressed Images (NIUI's) are free to access the transverse. At least one of Alexander's extra spatial dimensions could be very large (cosmic proportional) relative to the Standard Global Media Scale of Capitalist Misapprehension of 'personhood,' which lowers the Fundamental Human Individual's Volitional Scale, possibly even down to Trans-Sub-Cultural Electroweak Level. This revolutionary picture arises in the framework of recent developments in Über-Performativity in Contemporary Poetics ® as regards Spontaneous Mass Bubble Nucleation of Language as possible New Life Form Generation (NLFG's). Generalized Over-Accumulated-Wealth SuckBot Aesthetics cannot describe Present Ever-Dying Noxious Cultures at high enough energies and so must be replaced by an Alexanderized PolyPerson Theory of Drama, picking up significant corrections as the Fundamental Ideological Corpus Energy Scale is approached. Thus, at high energies Infra-Continental Cultural Relevance 'leaks' into the transverse, behaving in a truly higher-dimensional way"—Rodrigo Toscano.
