Worldline Zero

A single strike can alter the course of history.


A curve in space-time joining the positions of a particle throughout its existence


  • The world line of an object is the path of that object in 4-dimensional spacetime, tracing the history of its location in space at each instant in time
  • The unique path that an object has as it travels through both space and time, usually called spacetime

In special relativity

  • The faster an object goes, the more time slows down for that object and the slower object has a quicker passage of time than the very fast object, the one which time passes much more slowly for
  • As an object reaches the speed of light, it will be zero on the t axis, this means it will have made no progress in the time direction. So the world lines that show when the speed of light is reached, time stops for the observer

Expanded info:

  • World lines are used in theoretical physics and special relativity, as well as general relativity the time dilation equation presented by Albert Einstein is algebraically undefined when an object’s velocity is at the speed of light, but using world lines one can find that when the speed is the speed of light, time will stop


Worldline Ideasthesia: means ‘sensing concepts’ or ‘sensing ideas’

  • A phenomenon in which activations of concepts evoke perception-like experiences
  • Comes from research in “synesthesia” means “union of senses”, and is a branch developed to differentiate Ideas from the Senses.
  • The empirical evidence indicated this was an incorrect explanation of a set of phenomena traditionally covered by Syn-aesthesis or “co-perceiving”, it implied the association of two sensory elements with little connection to the cognitive level
  • So while synesthesia presumes that both the trigger and the resulting experience are combined and are of sensory nature, ideasthesia presumes that only the resulting experience is of sensory nature while the trigger is semantic


  • Power authority
  • Anarchy: The state of a society being without authorities or an authoritative governing body

Black Square

  • Means stop
  • *Black Square is an iconic painting by Russian avant-garde Kazimir Malevich. The first version was done in 1915. Malevich made four variants of which the last is thought to have been painted during the late 1920s or early 1930s. It was first shown in The Last Futurist Exhibition 0.10 in 1915. The work is frequently invoked by critics, historians, curators, and artists as the “zero point of painting”, referring to the painting’s historical significance and paraphrasing Malevich


  • The term ”cavalry”: a person or persons who serve the role of last-minute savior or back-up


  • Concept associated with Russian Constructivism
  • The period after the Russian Revolution, where a new definition of art had to be found, such as the definition of art objects as “laboratory experiments”
  • “Fakture” was the single most important quality of these art objects, according to the critic Victor Shklovsky, referring to the material aspect of the surface. The surface of the object had to demonstrate how it had been made, exhibiting its own distinct property


  • The action of twisting or the state of being twisted, especially of one end of an object relative to the other
  • When a curve departs from a plane
