We go back to the figure of Eros the Demiurge (announced above in Hollowed Out). A revivified public space depends on revitalizing the gods who preside over them Pallas Athene, for example, associated with the democratic agora of ancient Athens has to be mobilized, given back her power to move. As mistress of the lance, she is the weaver of all the curvilinear paths that form the patterns of sociability. Again, following ‘Thirdings’, non-western examples of spear mastery are described, as these underline the point that the management of movement is essentially historical and political.
