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…

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…”…

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…

The Elegy of the Exilee

‘Totality and Infinity’ is a book. Destroy the book and it persists nonetheless. 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…

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…

Start drawing the scene appearing outside the open window that is facing you. Set yourself an infinite amount of time to complete…

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…

Punish me with kisses

You find yourself sitting at your dining table; on the table, various pieces of cutlery. You listlessly push each piece of cutlery over the edge of the dining table and dully watch each piece come crashing to the floor. Now you happen to be in a library. You randomly pick a book; it happens to…

Speciously Valid

Science defines a photograph. All science does is define a photograph.  To dissect, to analyse, to investigate, to examine, to inspect, to study… actions all done in order to check whether reality is real, whether reality persists. What then, we should ask, is the difference between these actions and the act of remembering? Is there…

Let us concern ourselves with being. If we follow the route set by academicians to easily explain Heidegger to students, Being experiencing anxiety, which it has beforehand occluded, or, which it has been enabled beforehand to occlude, the source of, finds itself annoyed experiencing its experiences as nothing. Anxiety, which Being has made itself blinded…
