Imagine the moment of maximum height—and maximum flight—in a single leap. ‘Catching some air’ is one idiom to express this instant in time: a moment of physical suspension interrupting gravitational force. Expressions of this instant can be found in the so-called extreme sports. Moreover, this moment can be measured in the concept of ‘hang-time’ in basketball. For instance, a long hang-time (the period of flight during a ‘layup’) reveals mastery of the skill and a seemingly superhuman control over body and nature. Furthermore, catching some air is not a satisfying action when executed only once—extreme sports are evidence of this. On the contrary, it is a repetitive action, in which the agent strives for ever greater superhuman power; thus the extent of power is endlessly increasing. This also implies that the power is unattainable—’catching the superman’ is unattainable. The superman is metaphorically represented by the chord, or chordal sections, suggesting: closure, termination, the last act, the climax, the earth. The vehicle for air, on the other hand, is the resulting resonance from any chord, suggesting: sustain, pause, breathe, recurrence, eternity. Herein, one may perceive a dialectic in the relationship between the chord (the superman) and its resonance and repetition (air, eternal recurrence).
