"And us? We keep arriving. Not a Mann, not a Gombrowicz amongst us. We keep surfing with Hegel or Heidegger; cleverer than our own work. Cleverer than our writing certainly. Doomed to this joyous oscillation. Doomed to this safe carnival like useful sex."

"Discourse is not life: its time is not your time; in it, you will not be reconciled to death; you may have killed God beneath the weight of all you have said; but don't imagine that, with all that you are saying, you will make a man that will live longer than he."
- Michel Foucault

Even the habitués of the cthonic forces of terror will not learn one-tenth of what nature promises its less idly curious but more sober children, who possess in technology not a fetish of doom but a key to happiness. -Walter Benjamin
