TEAR of NOTHING


SpaceTime Coordinates:

"Aleph" (ME2020)

 diffracted through 

Nothingness + FormForce (2019/20) 

 

EACH TEAR IS A SPACETIME, A PERFORMANCE, A VESSEL, AN URN, AN ORNA, A STAGE. HERE TRANSFORMATIONS HAPPEN IN CONTINUUM. MIXING. FLEETING. FLOATING. DISSOLVING INTO AN OTHER. BURSTING. OVERSPILLING. WEAVING INTO THE OTHER. NEVER LEAVING THE OTHER SEPARATE BUT ALWAYS CUTTING TOGETHER-APART. DIFFRACTING THROUGH THE OTHER THAT IS ALWAYS THE SAME IN A FLASH. RIPENING HAPPENS WHEN SPACTIMES COINCIDE. UN/KNOWINGLY. THROUGH "THE COMMUNITY OF THOSE WHO HAS NOTHING IN COMMON" (Lingis 1994)

"And Zacchaeus, having written the alphabet in Hebrew, says to Him: Alpha. And the child says: Alpha. And again the teacher: Alpha; and the child likewise. Then again the teacher says the Alpha for the third time. Then Jesus, looking in the master's face, says: How canst thou, not knowing the Alpha, teach another the Beta? And the child, beginning from the Alpha, said by Himself the twenty-two letters. Then
also He says again: Hear, O teacher, the order of the first letter, and know how many entrances and lines it has, and strokes common, crossing and coming together. And when Zacchaeus heard such an account of the one letter, he was so struck with astonishment, that he could
make no answer. And he turned and said to Joseph: This child assuredly, brother, does not belong to the earth. Take him, then, away from me." (Gospel of Tomas)

Their lives followed the rail. A closet kept all their belongings. Nomads? Maybe not... They just moved. They couldn't do anything else. They moved as a unite. A community. Inseparable. Connected in a way that could not be explained. Only they themselves knew how strong the strings that strung them together. They loved. They loved. The moved. They...

Who are you?

What are you?

Unknown

and at the same time the only Known

When dealing with you, 

What is the answer?

 "Salt arises from the purest sources, the sun and the sea" (Pythagoras)

"S I N C E   P A R A C E L S U S  (1493-1541), salt has played a role in alchemy as the physical “body” which remains after combustion, the corporeal substance that survives death to reinaugurate new life. It was both ‘corruption and preservation against corruption’ (Dorn); both the ‘last agent of corruption’ and the ‘first agent in generation’ (Steeb). [2] As such, the alchemical salt functions as the fulcrum of death and revivification. The idea that the agent, instrument and patient of the alchemical process are not separate entities but aspects of one reality prefigures the significance accorded in this study to ‘the Hermetic problem of salt’. Just as in chemistry a salt may be defined as the product of an acid and a base, alchemically, salt is the integral resolution to the primordial polarities embodied in the mineral symbolique of cinnabar (HgS), the salt of sulphur and mercury. In the alchemy of René Adolphe Schwaller de Lubicz (1887-1961), salt forms the equilibrium between an active function (sulphur, divinity, peras) and its passive resistance (mercurial substance, prima materia, the apeiron), aspects which are latently present in the primordial (pre-polarised) unity, but crystallised into physical existence as “salt”. With Schwaller’s concept, one is dealing with a juncture of the metaphysical and proto-physical. As will be seen, however, this also inheres in the body as a fulcrum point of death and palingenesis
