Nul si découvert

Entre les couleurs et les visibles prétendus, on retrouverait le tissu qui les double, les soutient, les nourrit, et qui, lui, n’est pas chose, mais possibilité, latence et chair des choses. 
~ Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Le Visible et l’invisible (1964)

[l']esthétique [est] le système des formes a priori déterminant ce qui se donne à ressentir. C’est un découpage des temps et des espaces, du visible et de l’invisible, de la parole et du bruit qui définit à la fois le lieu et l’enjeu de la politique comme forme d’expérience. ±Rancière, Le Partage du sensible, p. 13-14

chicken, egg, and ambient

Instead of asking which came first, the chicken or the egg, it suddenly seemed that a chicken was an egg’s idea for getting more eggs. ± McLuhan, Medium is the Message (1964), p. 4 To prevent undue wreckage in society, the artist tends now to move from the ivory tower to the control tower of society. ± p. 13

the refusal as gift

The outline of these “contributions” toward the preparation of the
transition is taken from the still-unmastered ground-plan of the historicality of the transition itself:
the resonating
the interplay
the leap
the grounding
the future ones
the last god
This outline is not a series of various considerations on sundry objects; nor is it a step-by-step ascent from the low to the high. It is a
preliminary sketch of the temporal-spatial playing field which the
history of the transition first creates as its own realm in order to decide, according to its own law, about the futureless ones, i.e., those who are always only “eternal,” and about the future ones, i.e., those who occur only once.

± Martin Heidegger, Contributions to Philosophy (Of the Event), p. 7-8

The resonating of beyng in its refusal.
The interplay of the questioning of beyng. The interplay commences with the first beginning playing over to the other beginning,
in order to bring the latter into play such that out of this mutual
interplay, the preparation for the leap develops.
The leap into beyng. The leap leaps into the abyss of the fissure and
so for the first time attains the necessity of grounding Da-sein, which
is assigned out of beyng.
The grounding of truth as truth of beyng: (Da-sein).

± Martin Heidegger, Contributions to Philosophy (Of the Event), p. 10

Yet beyng is not something “earlier”—existing in itself, for itself. Instead, the event is the temporal-spatial simultaneity for beyng and beings.

± Martin Heidegger, Contributions to Philosophy (Of the Event), p. 13

Sérotonine de Houellebecq et le manque l'oxygène de Blake

La nicotine est une drogue parfaite, une drogue simple et dure, qui n’apporte aucune joie, qui se définit entièrement par le manque, et par la cessation du manque.

In 1956 Elvis Presley got a polio vaccination on national TV. That one event was partly responsible for raising immunization levels in the United States from 0.6% to 80% in just 6 months.
