Dendochronology as a technique carries the story of how modern techno-sciences in one way or another gaslight the borderline between existence and representation. In other words: the horizontal strata of tree rings present a specific worlding, while the disciplinary study of it over-impose a view of what ought to be, an average behavior, and also a distance of that specimen from an ideal representation of its species.
