The original handwritten text for the Parking Non-Stop piece "Zero In Grimaldi's Playing" as written in Prenzlauerberg, East Berlin on the 17th of August 2000 by the Earl and Duke of Leitmaritz whilst drinking Vermouth with members of Parking Non-Stop at the Koffeehaus Sowohlalsauch on Kollwitzstrasse


'Space' is created out of the vast intricacies, the incredible complexities, of the interlocking and the non-interlocking, and the networks of relations at every scale from local to global. What makes a particular view of these social relations specifically spatial is their simultaneity. It is a simultaneity, also, which has extension and configuration. But simultaneity is absolutely not stasis. Seeing space as a moment in the intersection of configured social relations (rather than as an absolute dimension) means that it cannot be seen as static. There is no choice between flow (time) and a flat surface of instantaneous relations (space). Space is not a 'flat' surface in that sense because the social relations which create it are themselves dynamic by their very nature. It is a question of a manner of thinking.
