Proposition (Escher Theorem)
Given a topological space X, a sequence of gesture skeleta
1 , 2, ...n
and a permutation of 1, 2,... n.

Memory and Rhetorical Trope inSchoenberg‘s String Trio(J. Amer. Musicol. Soc. 1998, vol. 51, no. 3)
Schoenberg explained the many juxtapositions of unlike material within the Trio as reflections of the delirium which the composer suffered during parts of his illness. Thus, the seemingly fragmentary nature of the Trio‘s material represents the experience of time and events as perceived from a semiconscious or highly sedated state. These unusal juxtapositions also represent ... the alternate phases of „pain and suffering“ and „peace and repose“ that Schoenberg experienced.
(Schoenberg shared his illness experience with friends and students.)
