And then infinity

The desire of Alterity is nothing other than the desire of another Being, which is nothing other than the desire of Alterity itself. The desire of Being is nothing other than the desire of Alterity which is nothing other than the desire of another Being which is nothing other than the desire of Alterity itself.…

The human eye does not always see in the same way that the photography apparatus sees (here by the term photography apparatus we mean its common iterations, such as film cameras, medium format cameras, DSLR cameras, mirrorless cameras, bridge cameras, compact digital cameras, smartphone cameras, action cameras, etc.). I can be shown an image of…

The Sleeplessness of Insanity Produces Time

Photographic realism does not capture all nouns. Not all nouns are nouns. The object, that is the something that is thrown in front of one, is the noun proper. When language fails, the Subject is subjected to, thrown under, a Subject, which is subjected to, thrown under, the Subject – which is subjected; thrown under.…

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…

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.…
