Reflections on travel as a form of philosophical enquiry.


The first Article explores the philosophical notion of travel from a historical perspective of the grand tour fused with cultural anthropology of the early 19th century. 
So if the historical perspective places emphasis on the kind of person who exists then the  Article exploring personal identity argues for travel as a form of life. The following sketch depicts a form of inter-species communication that relies on travel in the form of observing the operations of thought pertaining to action. A sense of being at a boundary is when at junction points, such as being on the beach, and observing a small boat about to embark on journey.
Though a journey can take on a sacred or profane tone. A sense of being on pilgrimage entails some form of belief that has an implicit element of unbelief embedded in the code of the act. However there is a sense of being a primitive modern as travel takes turns to inhabit spaces that mirror pre-modernity.
Although the 'new physics' implies that travel is movement along the boundary of a space-time, and so implying that an observer supervenes on the boundary as a fluctuation. The notion of possible worlds is based on a kind of travel that takes the quantum world seriously, and so travel can account for the contingent nature of an actual event, that could have been otherwise. The paradox of travel is related to notions of hyper connected fields.
