i'm within the interval; it's safe responding within this
echo-box, in other words you only hear what appears at -37 db
because of the depths of solitude, critically important to
thought and thinking, almost untoward in the aegis of the
pressure of the real - this is why you remain here - are you
with your companion, you are not alone, only here in the sense
of inner speech, for example you may imagine a better world, and
then what? your desires create turmoil, never secret, always in
the form of a carapace or cicatrix, this is reasonable clarity
you believe.[---------------] [---------------] = "i can face
myself in the interval," the consequence of this elaborate
framework, what will become, you assume, a broken structure at
any moment. [----------] where am i now? within the interval,
always within the interval, Zeno notwithstanding; how could it
be otherwise, given what we understand, now, about the
phenomenology and mathematics of limits? ----------->] = "where
was i then" - no way otherwise to answer this query? to tell
everything - what does "to tell" mean in this circumstance? to
speak everything? to designate? to acknowledge the impossibility
of designation? you write here in a coffeeshop, is that
satisfactory? does that cover all the bases? biases? what is a
covering in this situation? i am in the midst of this text: to
the "addenda: where are you" - what one assumes is a query
calling forth one or another covering; through the covering, the
interval is sutured, confined, as if it were possible to
transform an open set into a closed, without the circumlocution
of a path of circumambulation.
