Demiurge of the significances

See the prehistoric hunter making up his arc. He starts by cutting, that means by dismantling a structure, here the given structure of a tree, to get the needed materials. He chooses between woods, branches, lianas, etc., selecting them according to their elasticity, their flexibility and their resistance. And still to peel, to cleave, to cut, to knot, to tighten... giving little by little another form to these materials. Dismantling a structure to make up an other new structure. With the finished arc appears something entirely new within nature. An original creation of man and only of man. No other animal is able to have at its disposal the natural structures in such a creative way. The arc calls for the arrow. One creation calls for another one on the infinite way of improvements and innovations.

Man will go very far. He will learn how to dismantle more radically the structures of nature to be able to restructure an increasingly complex world starting from increasingly simple structural elements. The whole of scientific and technical progress is thus conditioned by this double dialectically reciprocal movement of
analysis and synthesis, as well theoretical and practical, in the indissociable unit of 'homo faber' and 'homo sapiens'. A double set of tools, at the same time a technological one and semantic one, which makes that the tool is never without being language also and that the language is never without being tool also.

Man is not the absolute creator of the significances. He cannot become absolutely their 'master and owner'. Beyond meanings in its control there are meanings which transcend him. The specific human possibility, the speech, far from being locked up in schizoid enclosure, is fertile only thanks to the breath which comes to him from elsewhere. Man is the demiurge of the significances. From the world such as it is given by nature, man has the possibility ad infinitum to recreate the new world of culture. This re-creation is achieved through a re-organization, through a re-structuring of structures given by nature. All that nature gives, indeed, from the simplest to the most complex, is always, already, constructed. Man however has this extraordinary capacity to become master of the structures of nature and specially of its structural ratios.

Man, demiurge of the significances, takes the nature out of its indifference. Before this exodus, nature is properly unimportant. It tends towards sense zero. The true sense is son of difference. And the initiator of difference is man.
