Between the lines and the sheets 

My Being is for Time to affect itself. I can pretend it is the same for the Other. One way of describing the manner through which Time affects itself would be something like: “This took x minutes to complete.” One would have very well said the same thing had one stated: “Once upon a time…”…

Promise

Text is the linear continuity of Time.  Image is the linear circularity of Time.  (Time puts things in order.) Needless to say, one necessarily sees past reality.  In the beginning there might have been the Word; in the end there is only an image. Reality is a linguistic contrivance. One retains (takes) an ‘impression’ of…

Archytas

A bottle is not a bench. Happiness is not sadness. A bottle cannot be extracted out of the viscera of a bench. Happiness, though, is teased out of sadness itself. All this goes to show that there is a distinction between being and cognition. But is there? Being and cognition are both modes of Time.…

À Dieu, Dasein

Who are you? Marco. What are you? I am…  Having to state its case, Dasein would not make recourse to being, or assume being, to explain its being… Who/what are you? (simply) Dasein. Dasein is simultaneously identity and substance. Dasein’s concern with its being is concern about that seemingly non-deferrable concern about seemingly needing to…

Thrownness, thrown

As corroborated by the Book of Genesis, the notion of poverty came to be the day Dasein felt the need to manifest its realness to itself, that is to say that poverty defined itself as such on the very day Dasein appeared to itself as Dasein. First problem experienced: If Man exists, it’s his problem.…

An Aside

Man does not possess language. Man possesses the language of language… which is language. Since the language of language is the language of language, the language of language is least like language. Language is infinitely vaster than its language happens to be. Language and its language are an expression, a manifestation, of Dasein. Dasein is…

Swan’s Way

Being venturing forth unto the Nothing is nothinged. The force that nothings Being as it ventures forth unto the Nothing is nihilation. The Nothing that Being ventures forth towards is not the Nothing. The Nothing is a chimera, one produced by a Subject as it subjectivises. Being, being is, (being-is staring, out), cannot be nothinged.…

If

“Dasein is ontically distinctive in that it is ontological” (HEIDEGGER, 1962:32). The ontico-ontological dimension of Dasein refutes ontology. Being cannot be ontological. The being of beings, Being(,) in itself(,) catches sight of everything outside itself. Dasein realizes that everything about itself is contained within itself – DNA. It is then a willful decision of Dasein…

*bheue-

Imagine yourself standing in a room full of diverse objects. You begin to levitate to just a few centimeters above the floor, enough for your toes not to be able to touch the floor anymore. All of a sudden, all your muscles stiffen, and you cannot move at all. Only your eyeballs are now able…

Everything is in itself

The Other irks perception; perception cannot withstand otherness. The Other is a thorn in the side of perception. The world is first seen. The perturbation, the anomaly, is an Other mindlessly perceived, the Other impinging upon perception. The world is first seen. Everything approaches Dasein from a future; all beings hold a futurity in perception.…
