When can we talk about a “house” or a “mansion” or a “shed”? The same can be said about verbs, in all the languages in the world: when should we stop saying “walk” and start saying “run”? The same happens, of course, with adjectives:

when must we stop saying “yellow” and start saying “orange”,

or stop defining as “black” and start saying “white”, or “rich” and “poor”, “entrepreneur” and “worker”, “civilized” and “primitive”, “man” and “animal”, “beast” and “sovereign”, “christian” and “pagan”, or “beautiful” and start saying “ugly”, or “bad” and start saying “good”, or “truth” and start saying “false”, “determined” and “free”? Or “in” and “out”, “here” and “there”, “now” and “then”, “past” and “present” and “future” and “eternal”?

Thus, complete meaning is always “differential” and postponed in language; there is never a moment when meaning is complete and total.

What this suggests to Stiegler is that grammatology—a logic of the grammè—must be supplemented with a history of grammatisation, a history of all the forms and techniques of inscription, from genetics to technics, each stage of which will be found to possess its own logic. Only in this way can différance be thought as the differing and deferral of life (life as the emergence of a difference from non-life, specifically as the deferral of entropy), and as the difference from physis through which the human must inevitably be defined (the human as the inauguration of another memory, neither the memory of genetics nor that of the individual, but rather a memory consisting in “inscription in the nonliving,” that is, technical memory).

makes me think of how much time we spend.. using words.. ie:

Instagram’s Privacy Policy: Rewritten, So Kids Can Understand It

and how bad that is for us ie: too much ness

entropy ness –

4 min – it’s like the universe has a witness protection program for its energy and we call that entropy…

thinking ps in the open ness.. no need for all the words.. policies.. because we’d be swimming in idiosyncratic jargon ness of approaching the limit of zero/infinity in meaning ness

so we spend our time listening deeper.. to what’s right now/here.. than explaining some universal defn of ie: a word/policy/whatever

maybe life could be less about meaning.. and more about living


no words


differentiation ness
