One more thought about the CODEX

One other thought I had. I was facinated and entertained with Gomez-Pena’s collapsing of the binary that constructs global social space between first and third worlds. Remapping global social space into the “conceptual archipelago” of the first world, the “geo-political Limbo” of the second world, the “ex-underdeveloped” third world, the conceptual meeting place of indigenous and deterritorialized peoples in the fourth world, the virtual, institutional, capitalist, corporate, and political space of the fifth world is a trickster move that is effective for deconstructing our colonizing mindset. I am intrigued by the landscape of the fourth world and wonder if recovering “fourth world rhetorics” has potential for cross-cultural rhetorical studies.
