How so very odd the suspension of temporality that alterity provides. Friday I was convinced of my destination; a time replete with fanciful writing and scholarship. Thinking of someone else, of who it is that causes the step back from the tradition, from my tradition of ipseity, I am in this moment depleted, empty of myself and at the same I have the feeling of supreme fullness. Without speaking in terms of ‘absolute,’ ‘really,’ or ‘strictly,’ I must simply say that the surprise is a wondrous gift indeed.

The Plane of Immanence

The Plane of Immanence

This blog is more or less an aesthetic expression of metaphysics, of the way art resounds in concepts and in thinking our way through them. "The plane of immanence is not a concept that is or can be thought but rather the image of thought, the image thought gives itself of what it means to think, to make use of thought, to find one's bearings in thought."-Deleuze
