Example text

We have effaced the signs of belonging (to a superior realm), and we have disconnected the way things were ordered (the spheres of the worlds, the cycles of time, wisdoms). We have become entirely beings who speak: our word goes nowhere except its own elsewhere. Our destiny is henceforth played out there. Nothing, nobody replies to our word any longer. It is possible that mankind has always known this and always more or less skirted around any admission of it—this skirting around being the figuration of the gods—but that now mankind has come to the point of declaring that nothing and nobody is responding, and yet that everything and everyone resonates with this address that we are.

If there were a memory or a document, then we could no longer speak of the “inaccessible,” but neither could there any longer be address, no longer could there be this type of approach, of proximity to or even intimacy with the inaccessible. We can even say: there could be no more access to the inaccessible. Our forgetting therefore keeps intact what nonetheless we know that we touch, that we can touch, or that we sometimes happen to touch—or rather, what touches us, without us truly knowing it, although we are not unaware of it either.

But in itself it is nothing, nothing but a gap, an opening. The infinitesimal reality (res, nothing [rien]) of opening. And therefore also of relationship, transport, transformation, or exchange, of the fortunate or unfortunate encounter. The opening is as risky, as adventurous as it is fortuitous, as dangerous as it is precious. Adoration is addressed to this opening. Adoration consists in holding onto the nothing—without reason or origin—of the opening. It is the very fact of this holding on.
