Time is rapture. Anything that happens in Time, falls out of Time. Literally. Being is Time. Anything that is, falls out of Being, and is. Quite literally. In time, everything comes to be. What is the rupture that causes the rupture? Love. The “struggle between human being and apparatuses” (FLUSSER 2000: 75) is the struggle…

The truth is that which happens. Everything that happens happens. But about something which has already happened, one can always say that that which happened to happen, then, happened to happen, then, only in the mind. But who is to say that that was not the way in which that which happened to happen, then,…

You are most welcome

Reality is perfection. Nothing outdoes reality, warts and all. Ironically, the most perfect painting happens to be a photograph. Paintings are merely the result of (the intentional or unintentional) poor use of Photoshop (coupled with the use of an expensive and very good 3D printer). Photographs are very cheap illustrations, especially the digital kind; underlying…

That happens to be the case with everything… d’oh…  ‘Totality and Infinity’ is not a book… about alterity or the Alter or the alterity of the Alter. If one capably destroyed the Alter and with it all alterity, the subject of ‘Totality…

Hearing is vision, othered. At some point in history, increasing image resolution started to only have an effect on film, leaving negligible obvious impact on photography. That is tantamount to saying that with the tremendous increase in image resolution evinced in the last decade or so, perceived motion happened to have been affected more drastically…
