“is there a possibility of identity outside being a being of language? desire itself is working within language and we gain enjoyment from language, from how the other identifies with codes and symbolic identifications. blanchot studies silence. silence is there where we keep on taking part in life with its enjoyments, but we no longer need to produce meaning or find meaning in it. almost like walking through a desert where the silent desert itself speaks, where the nothing is already saying enough to keep us going. but i am not idealizing the loneliness of walkng in a desert. it is for me a loneliness that prepares us to socialize. if the loneliness only is fetishized, if silence is fetishized, if the nothing is fetishized or elevated, then i am doubtful of such melancholic elevation.” – http://ift.tt/1ZsVg3E
