What Parmigianino and the flaming iron seem to suggest is a denial of "equivalence" as a principle of signification, or, the impossibility to 'name' a 'thing.' To suggest that two things cannot be likened is to change the basis of consciousness towards a non-viability of the human condition. When someone declares themself a Neoist, this means a positive refusal of the polarity between "same" and "different"; anything is anything.
The cosmology of Neoism is based on the house of nine squares. Kafka said, " Anything you can learn, you can learn without ever going outside, without ever leaving your room." This is early Neoist thinking. The Neoist is the eternal traveller in the house of nine squares, a house which can never be left since it has no doors and seems to reflect itself internally. When two or more Neoists meet, their mobile psychical homes form " Akademgorod", the promised land of Neoism.
