Example text

There. There where “it’” never becomes “I,” since the I would represent an advanced and high level formation for it to take, there where the I sinks into the it. What can I say of a place that withdraws from view, always and already, structurally, in principle, in principio? How am I to fathom a bottomless depth? What am I to make of that (ça), of it? In principio erat id. In principio, erat. That is not blasphemy, but a certain humble, minimalist phenomenology, with a heavy borrowing from Genesis I:1.

16 I have for a very long time been haunted by the idea that what is there (il y a) is a vast starlit night of endless skies, a dark expanse of stars flickering in a void. I am kept awake at night by the thought of a sprawl of endless space and time, punctuated here and there by celestial fires of astronomical proportions, massive spheres of flaming gases, burning furiously. Fires burning from time immemorial, from long before my time. They burn and burn. They burn because they burn, in a stretch of endless space.

Which one? Does anything live on those stars? Are there stars out beyond those stars, without beginning or end? Are the stars filled with gods who hold them mightily in their hand and steer their course and who look down on us mortals, keeping a watchful eye? Or do the stars simply wend their way through a void and then burn out, all the while utterly unmindful of us and of our cares? Are we alone, with no one watching, utterly unseen, unheeded by anyone, he asked himself? Who or what calls Abraham?
