The principles of similitude, repetition, and identity established in Foucault's account within Renaissance modes of knowledge and structures of authority destined formations of difference to be represented, both at the pyx in 1611 and parliament in 1604, over a threshold of visibility: a "dark" asymmetrical depth to be probed by a look of inexorable desire.
After independence, it remained sunk in both the "middle ages' and the "dark ages' (they're all the same to Leiken), a "heart of darkness,' a "darkened sea' that "flowed in obscurity'--until "the Nicaraguan revolution disclosed unsuspected and deep turbulence.' In this lumpen chiaroscuro, the Guatemalan revolution and its fate recede below the threshold of visibility: no turbulence could be suspected there.
That's important, because as more of your field of vision is occupied by a deep-sky target, the likelier it is you're going to detect it--especially if it's on the threshold of visibility. But at the very low magnifications found in standard binoculars, extra power plays an even more important role.
While the transferred illustrations often hover near the threshold of visibility amid the washes and furious pencil hatchings that blanket the surface,(24) her paraphrases display a telegraph-like concision and bite.
M74 provides yet another lesson in the importance of magnification when it comes to objects at the threshold of visibility. Using my 15x45 image-stabilized binoculars, I can hold the galaxy in view continuously and even begin to appreciate its ghostly dimensions.
