*metamorphosis (a mode of existence first detected in psychogenesis?) what we encounter whenever we address the manner in which existents are transformed or transform in order to subsist (zist زیست)
-defined by a certain kind of continuity and obtained by a certain type of discontinuity
-‘metamorphosis’ is about crisis, possession, alienation,
-‘metamorphosis’ sharply contrasts *cure* (~= ritual)
-allowing for installing unconscious (states,) crush, posses, bewitch, kill,
-beings with specific properties that are invisible, changeable, powerful, favorable, unfavorable
-exploration of transformations
-cosmological especialities
-seniority and extension of metamorphosical beings (of elaborations carried out by all groups in ‘metamorphosis)

that which addresses the “me”, the “ego” =/=? that which allows one to resist the forces of metamorphosis

we are seeking to redefine the paths of beings that are unique to 'ajayeb without giving them substance and without jumping immediately into transcendence. (using Latour words) [transcendence IS NEVER gradual, in the places i come from, it is always a shock, happening, a truth-event]
-each word (God, angel, jinn, fog, etc.) brought into its own network,
-what are contrasts and of category mistakes particular to each
-and their crossings——and what is the vocabulary specific to each crossing

'ajayeb, angel, being, category, crossing, God, jinn, Latour, shock, transcendence, truth,

explanatory rage (tavahoshe roshangari توحش روشنگری) —✕—> networks necessary for religious meaning

the network of associations necessary for the exercise of religion without bracketing off its ontological requirements.

نسبت دادن attribution =/= explanation (behavior assigned to its cause) =/= inference (quality/attribute assigned to the agent’s observed behavior)
-can we do without *explanatory style*? (a person’s causal dimensions of stability and globality) ——> past dealing (optimism, pessimism, etc.)
-can we do without *locus of control*? (a person’s locus conceptualized as internal) ——> future dealing (fate, hope, etc.)

'ajayeb is a ‘network’ more than anything else, in it “God” has no special privilege, is not located in addition to or beyond other beings

Mullah Sadra (ملاصدرا) revolutionized the metaphysics of being, in reversing the order of priority of essence (mahiat ماهیت). he gives priority to existence (vojud وجود): that means, it is the act and mode of existing that determine the nature of essence. the act of existing is in effect capable of multitude of degrees of intensification or of degradation.
