Temporary but Unrepentant Umbilical to Furthur Thought-Insanity, Part XV

Carlos-O(1): “We both offer an idea of something to overcome or revolt against.”

Orla-O(1): “Yes, in your case it is totalization, and in mine, a king who is a master of dualisms.”

Carlos-O(1): “ We both also offer a picture of what happens, the overcoming or revolt, as never ending…It goes on and on.”

Orla-O(1): “ Quite right. You say the task of critique is infinite, incompleteable, and without end. After pointing out Plato has never been more relevant than today, I say his relevance is as something to revolt against. Revolt against Plato goes on and on, interminably. It is taken up again and again in our history. It must be taken up again by us, today.”

Carlos-O(1): “The feature of incompleteness is something both of us affirm.”

Orla-O(1): “ As long as incompleteness is not conceived as failure or negation.”
