DIS-tinction


The spirit is the one which carries the 'no' in the middle of the natural '
yes'. The spirit distinguishes. It distends natural compactness. It deconstructs solid structures. It opens a void to make occur through this distance a new text, a new world.

Thought is primarily a
critical act. It starts by distinguishing, i.e. by refusing the limits and the enclosures. “All was mixed up, said Anaxagoras, then came the understanding which separated everything to put it in order.” In the Book of Genesis, there is the Spirit which planes over the hurly-burly… To distinguish. To separate. To create. Creation begins with separation. Construction begins with deconstruction.

Whereas the animal always
composes with nature man disposes of it.

The man has nature by a control which implies a catch of
distance compared to it. Thus, a different dynamics makes irruption in nature, is different from it, to take it again, out of it, above it, in the other. This dynamics is the thought.

Difference... We would never speak if we were
full. We would not speak if we were only what we are. The animal is too full with animality and itself to be able to speak. The indifference does not speak. The word starts with the distance and the difference. The spirit is difference. He deciphers other world half symbolic system. The spirit relativizes
. It returns to the absolute what belongs to the absolute.



The sudden appearance of 'no' within the unconditional 'yes' of nature represents a crack which goes widening in a gigantic fault. The distance grows hollow between. Between immediate and differed, between present and spent, present and future, the desire and its execution, the same one and the other, appearing it and the being, the presence and the absence, between what is and what must be… And in this distance opens a new space and is established the possibility of a new world. That of the culture. With the possibility of this not is given, new nature, the possibility of the man not initially like substantive but like active verb. Hominiser. To humanize. To open with the other and the étreindre. To die in this pressure to emerge new. And to even buckle itself not on this new. But still to open. To still face the other. And the other of the other. Infinitely.

Thought is primarily a
critical act. It starts by distinguishing, i.e. by décompacter the massive solidity of the world, i.e. by shouting “not” with indistinct confusion.



Why, whereas the bodies are multiple and varied, whereas the experiments are indefinitely varied through space and time, whereas the tastes and the desires take thousand turnings, yes, why the `spirits', all the spirits, are in so great communion, even behind superficial dissensions, with a constituent essence? From where can its extraordinary possibilities come to our spirit? From where come to it the fundamental dissatisfaction in front of what is not eternal and infinite? From where come to it its fundamental need to always seek in front of itself? From where do its surges of generosity come to him?

The materialist monism, logically, can only refuse any suitable 'reality' to the spirit. When there is only left one order of reality, namely the material order, which place could remain for the spirit which is in radical contradiction with this kind of monism? You cannot come close to the reality of the spirit except in a different radical 'other' order.
