I understand. That’s the trouble. I understand. I’ll understand all the time. All day and all night. Especially all night. I’ll understand. You don’t have to worry about that.

#008 - On The Category of Presence and Nihilism

***

The category of presence is empty, because nihilism is unpresent. 

When it’s unpresent - it remains hidden. 

This doesn’t change the ontology, though - the fact of existence, ex-istence, going through the reality. 

Other way: when you aren’t present, even if you want to become, you can’t do it. There’s no possibility, there is only impossibility that generates nihilism

***

Now, empty your mind, throw out all your emotions - leave only what is known as patientia and caritas or agape. Leave only compassion. 

***

Nihilism is mostly the desire, as well as the nihilist. The desire without the end, everlasting and unable to extinguish. Forever processual, eternally becoming. 

#007 - On Nihilism

***

The emptiness, the void - it’s always produced by some kind of impossibility. Impossibility of finding the way of understanding - what happened or how to interpret it. 

***

As people, we have the power of giving the meaning to what we see and into what we want to believe in.

***

When the possibility of “framing” the well-known world disappears, in some way we loose the possibility of interpretation and participation. These two are forever bound. 

***

The game is being played == when everybody accept the rules of the game.

***

Without knowing the rules of other’s game, even the most qualified user of the language dwells in the darkness. Then, there’s no world - there’s only nihilism. It’s just a matter of negation. And the negation always means “being unpresent”.
