From Blinding to Solenoid: Brain Maps, Visions, and Dreams in Mircea Cărtărescu’s Fiction

In Mircea Cărtărescu’s latest colossal novels (the Blinding trilogy and the solitary Solenoid), the novelistic conception is associated with a special theoretical platform predicated on terms such as gnostic, fractile, holarchical, asymptotical, spiralled, or termitelike
– assumed, at a conceptual level, in a postmodernist or even post-postmodernist sense. The present study examines the validity of these concepts, which render Cărtărescu’s recent prose as a partial container of the exact sciences (like mathematics or
physics), evincing a comprehensive philosophical conception according to which the novel, as genre, can represent a third or even a fourth dimension in the cultural, human, cosmic space. This is the author’s ambitious project, which the present research aims
to deconstruct, with a view to highlighting the possible mutations the novel undergoes as a genre under Cărtărescu’s penmanship.

Keywords: gnosticism, fractals, holarchy, Mircea Cărtarescu, brain, map, vision, dream.
