Key words: alphabet, bodies, capture, corporeal, diagrams, digital, electronic, gesture, ghost effects, the I, medium, the monobeing, prosody, parallel/serial, performance, Platonism, semiotic, subjectivity, technological, virtual, voice, writing.

Principal thesis: All inscription systems affect – inflect, re-create, engender – the subjectivities, modes of thought, and metaphysics of their users. The focus here is  alphabetic  writing as distinct from the symbolic/diagrammatic systems of mathematics.
