I got the spark (bzim) for this little article when I read a Edgar Wind quote, which offered images (among others) like :
- a dolphin with an anchor
- a turtle with a sail
- a blindfolded bobcat
I found this in a Didi-Huberman small article, playing with dances of two concepts – which I like above all or almost.
Therefore I write all this to try to catch a blurry idea in my web, searching with words…
There’s a relation between “not knowing” and “knowing” : what is it made of, how does it move? Is there a frontier here? How does it move? If I increase my knowledge, do I lose something else?
Appearance/Disapperance as a dance, or a will – maybe like the fireflies, the lightning bugs in the night : they flickeremit signals.
To slow down to think about all things. To be fast to catch an event in flight.
festina lente : hâte-toi lentement : make haste slowly
DIALECTICAL Images : “involving the interaction of opposites”
A dolphin needs an anchor to experiment something. Like try to play badminton with your other hand (with a partner who does the same). It slows you. It triggers other things.
A turtle with a sail. Is she a dreamer? Does it give a 1% more power, sufficient to trigger a big something? What is a placebo? Can you be your own placebo? Meta?
A blindfolded lynx. He has to increase his other senses?
Bothness… Or a will to decrease something to win something else… It’s a way to find a way out, to open an oblique door…
