The assumptions of a microbial ecosystem define what it means to be person, so that a person is an ecological community. How ought we to think of personal identity when we consider the role of built spaces and dynamic interactions in shaping our microbial signatures?

2020年7月，據點成員駱敏聰從黎肖嫻的手裏取來《三毛流浪記》全集的第七集，寫個自由發揮的「閱讀報告」。三毛的遭遇，在三個「問三毛」的「隨機訪談」中漠然化開了，難成合體的論述；讀故事的人卻在前台亮點。這是個有關當下香港人的非典型讀漫畫的案例。FP member Kel Lok took #7 of the story of Three Hair’s wandering to attempt a book review, which turns out to be an ensemble of personae reading the copy on a poor kid’s encounters in the war-torn years of 1930s-1940s through the lens of a contemporary person. The sensationalist… The skeptic… The indifferent one… The one making detours…

Germ socialism implies we are all bound together. It rests on “the utilization of the power of all for the good of all,” which results in hygiene, i.e. the science of the prevention of diseases.

There is a close relation between the dominant diseases of a given period and the character and style of that period. … 「病因學」的源頭和因果機制設定意味著傳染病發生事我們同一條傳，必須親和協作，而「衛生」的實踐，就是截斷因果鏈，防止病菌病毒的蔓延。
