слишком рано

- У вашего "Мыслителя" вид человека, который, начав мыслить, недоволен тем, что видит вокруг себя.- сказал Буше. 
- Вы правы,- согласился Огюст.- Видимо, я сказал больше чем хотел. Я все больше убеждаюсь что человек начал мыслить слишком рано, еще не будучи к этому подготовленным.

Schopenhauer’s nihil negativum

“Haino’s performance is an example of the radically unhuman aspect of Cosmic Pessimism, the impersonal affect of dread described by Kierkegaard as “antipathic sympathy and sympathetic antipathy.” So, Black is Myself also manages to be mystical at the same time that the individual performer is dissolved into a meshwork of tones – voice, space, and instrument variously existing in consonance and dissonance with each other. So, Black is Myself is a reminder of the metaphysical negation that is also at the core of black metal, as if Schopenhauer’s nihil negativum were rendered as musical form, ultimately negating even itself in a kind of musical antiform.” 
~Eugene Thacker. “In the Dust of This Planet.”

Hyperobjects simply enable us to see what is generally the case:
(1) Protagoras notwithstanding, objects are not made-to-measure for humans.
(2) Objects do not occur “in” time and space, but rather emit spacetime.
(3) Causality does not churn underneath objects like a machine in the basement, but rather  oats in front of them.
(4) The causal dimension, in which things like explosions are taken to happen, is also the aesthetic dimension, in which things like Nude Descending a Staircase are taken to happen.

rocks rock

it's like we have there different versions of ourselves competing to be us

ah Claude, t'es merveilleux

“Le but de ce livre [Mythologiques 1 : Le cru et le cuit] est de montrer comment des catégories empiriques, telles que celles de cru et de cuit, de frais et de pourri, de mouillé et de brûlé, etc., définissables avec précision par la seule observation ethnographique et chaque fois en se plaçant au point de vue d'une culture particulière, peuvent néanmoins servir d'outils conceptuels pour dégager des notions abstraites et les enchaîner en propositions.”
~ Claude Levi-Strauss

si-au fost zile cand te-am inteles
si-au fost zile cand te-am simtit
si-au fost zile cand ai lipsit

ele toate pot fi adunate
si scazute
si impartite

pot
dar nu sunt
ele s-au multiplicat

si cand ascult Yamunā Tīra Vihāri
e mereu un fel de mai mult ca perfect
a fost o zi in care nu ai fost

in ziua aia nu eram nici eu.
zilele vin si pleaca
doar pietrele vorbesc
