Nothing you read gets you any closer
to what you want to think about in
terms of content. You read in order to
provoke in yourself a kind of momentum
towards obtaining thought in a certain
key or intensity. In a reverse algebra,
the intensity then corresponds to the
range of repressed priorities that are otherwise
hidden so they may grow undisturbed by
the swirl of surrounding external impingements. That

nonetheless only serves to bring home
the fact that what attunes us is
equal in importance to what we are
led to by means of an intensified awareness.
