From Plastic Tub

Incident pop. 1. Something contingent on or related to something else. 2. An occurrence or event that interrupts normal procedure or precipitates a crisis. 3. Falling upon or striking a surface.


"The Incident differs from other material phenomena only through an involvement with perception and in this light can be studied under the mantle of etiology; the eye plays the part of an infecting agent of Mind, infusing the whole with meaning. The Incident is defined by it's relation to a viewer, who acts both as intrepreter and associational instigator. As further explanation, we may relax into the vernacular: if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is there to witness it, did it fall? The question moves from pure materialism to one of teleological concern, arguably the territory of cognition. Further, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody sees it, does it matter? Theorists of the Incident suggest not; natural activity occuring outside perception is of little, if any, concern."
