Ultimately, Clarice opens the reader up to a void that entices yet terrifies. She paints a picture provoking a feeling for Charles Sanders Peirce’s three categories of feeling, action and thought, of what is possibly available to consciousness, in the process of entering consciousness and conscious sensing and experience. Her writing profoundly embodies the inevitable struggle to comprehend process, the becoming appearance of what is, and the impossibility of expressing that becoming. It effectively reveals the nature of Peirce’s three categories of thought, the world, mind’s process, and signs. It creates an intangible awareness of our co-participation with ourselves, with others, and with the physical world- it suggests the interdependent, interrelating complementarity of our becoming.
