quoth the madman


"Because we think without origin, and without destination, difference becomes the highest thought, but we cannot think it between two things, between a point of departure and a point of arrival, not even between Being [I’etre] and being [I’e’tant]. Difference cannot be affirmed as such without devouring the two terms that cease to contain it, though it does not itself cease from passing through assignable terms. Difference is the true logos, but logos is the errancy that does away with fixed points; indifference is its pathos. Difference emerges from and re-enters a fissure that swallows up all things and beings."
