Example text

In the impossibility, in the unsupportability of the absence of world, quite close to the un-world [immonde], I found the world as irreducible locality, and as locality itself constituted, in all circumstances, but invisibly, just as water is absent to a fish, by default, by the default, and even as default, for example, that default of pronunciation which we hear in a foreign accent. I posed the default as that which every locality expresses, in its guise and according to its place: as originary default of origin, inasmuch as a locality is always artifactually and prosthetically constituted-and, in my situation then and there, reconstituted by and in that which remained of a "milieu" despite everything, granting me in the end a place still, an ensemble ofremains that I wanted to save and that I therefore reconstituted hypomnesically, fighting against the finitude of my memory, against that which I later called, with Derrida, commenting on Husserl, my retentionalfin i- 24 How I Became a Philosopher tude.

If it is a television broadcast (rather than a cassette in your VCR), the World Cup, for example, then hundreds of millions of people watch it at the same moment as you, and you synchronize yourself with those consciousnesser-you are in the same time-consciousness.

When I say that the necessity of milieu-that I have to invent it and that I experiment by default with it-cannot be found except by myself I say the same thing as when I speak ofsignificance and insignificance, which is my pure responsibility.
