The natives who inhabit these shifting lands dont know how to use their sensory apparatus in order to find pathways in this strangely familiar, yet different place. The meter does not exist, nor the kilo, nor does any clock to turn time into seconds. They cant tell the parts from the whole. As they venture into the ambivalent Current Situation and deal with what is at hand, they slowly create their own vernacular: they discover new forms, develop coping strategies and invent ways to (re-)evaluate and compare the stuff they harvest.
