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…”…

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…

The Dream of Eve

The brain is a model. A visual percept is an internal representation of an external phenomenon. There is no such thing as an internal percept of an internal phenomenon. An internal percept is inside; it being inside, it is inside. An internal representation of an internal phenomenon is an internal representation. That internal representation is…

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…

Dasein is simultaneously identity and substance. Dasein’s concern with its being is concern about that seemingly non-deferrable concern about seemingly needing to…

Without separation, no contact. Separation is the necessary precursor to contact. It is irrelevant whether a painted thing is a being or a non-being. Painting confirms the painted thing as being as such. The lemon is the lemon. There is nothing outside the lemon which is the lemon. Obviously lemons can cease to exist. In…

Axel’s Island

A memory is no different from a representation. A memory can be indistinguishable from an artefact – a thing done with craft. When the fool looks at the pointing finger, when, that is, we question the very act of remembering, the punctum – the alterity – of the memory strikes. The pointing finger, remembering, points…

The White Rabbit (Part 3 of 3)

Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee. The Holy Bible: Genesis. 3:16 Why is this world the only possibility for alterity? In the light of the day,…

We take a photograph. Or maybe we are still deciding on whether we ought to take the photograph. The subject or event we are in want of photographing, we photograph, or ideate about whether to photograph, because the subject or event we are in want of photographing impinges upon consciousness (sometimes without us paying much…
