A kind of a "dangerous supplement", marked, scarred on a body, post-orgasmically, always, already in anticipation of (a) crisis OR for a desert avec 'agape'. Mindb(l)ogg(l)ing Noise. "Avalanche, would you share my last pursuit?" (Baudelaire)

In other words, praxis

Fragments towards an anonymously dedicated anorthography

"Άπειρες εκτάσεις κόσμων σε κάθε σταλαγματιά ζωής του κόσμου που ζούμε.
Έτσι σχηματίστηκε ο Γαλαξίας από τις σταλαγματιές το γάλα που χύθηκε όταν η μάνα αποποιήθηκε να γαλουχήσει το βρέφος.
Η άρνηση εκτελέσεως μιας φυσικής λειτουργίας, δημιουργεί τους άλλους κόσμους."
Ν. Γ. Πεντζίκης, Σημειώσεις Εκατών Ημερών, σελ. 44

"Just so stylled with the nattes are their flowerheads now an each of all has a lovestalk onto herself and the tot of all the tits of their understamens is as open as he can posably she and is tournesoled straightcut or sidewaist, accourdant to the coursets of things feminite, towooerds him in heliolatry, so they may catchcup in their calyzettes, alls they go troping, those parryshoots from his muscalone pistil, for he can eyespy through them, to thei selfcolours, nevertheleast their tissue peepers, (meaning Mullabury mesh, the time of appling flowers, a guarded figure of speech, a variety of perfume, a bridawl, seamist inso one) as leichty as see saw (O my goodmiss! O my greatmess! O my priselestly preshoes!) while, dewyfully as dimb dumbelles, all alisten to his elixir. Lovelyt!"
James Joyce, Finnegans Wake, 236.33 - 237.09

"The ideal form is still a contingent norm, but one whose contingency has been rendered necessary, a form of reification with stark consequences for gendered life. Those who disagree with me tend to claim, with some exasperation, 'But it is the law!' But what is the status of such an utterance? "It is the law!" becomes the utterance that performatively attributes the very force t the law that the law itself is said to exercise. "It is the law" is thus a sign of allegiance to the law, a sign of desire for the law to be the indisputable law (...) The law beyond laws will finally put an end to the anxiety produced by a critical relation to final authority that clearly does not know when to stop: a limit to the social, the subversive, the possibility of agency and change, a limit that we cling to, symptomatically,a s the final defeat of our own power. Its defenders claim that to be without such a law is pure voluntarism or radical anarchy! Or is it? And to accept such a law as a final arbiter of kinship life? Is that not to resolve by theological means the concrete dilemmas of human sexual arrangements that have no ultimate normative form?"
Judith Butler, Antigone's Claim, p. 21
