the abolition of everything

09May07

“What I find truly fantastic is that when you call something ‘invisible’, you are naming something, which means that you are almost giving a representation of the invisible. In other words, when you say ‘invisible’, you are pointing to the boundary between the visible and the invisible; there are words for that. But when you can’t say the word, you are standing before nothing. And for me this is even more powerful because, finally, there is a visible in the invisible, just as there is an invisible in the visible. And this, this abolishes everything.”
– Edmond Jabès
