Poeticity, in other words, makes the object something other than itself even as it stands right in front of you; even the word becomes something different from representation or expression, obtaining a kind of independent force. Herein lies the vibe, where the structure of experience gives rise to more intimate experience, and where the structuralist paradigm encounters its own mysticism.

Chests, especially small caskets, over which we have more complete mastery, are objects that may be opened. When a casket is closed, it is returned to the general community of objects, it takes its place in exterior space. But i opens! For this reason, a philosopher mathematician would say that it is the first differential of discovery. The outside is effaced with one stroke, an atmosphere of novelty and surprise reigns. The outside has no more meaning. And quite paradoxically, even cubic dimensions have no more meaning, for the reason that a new dimension- the dimension of intimacy- has just opened up.

chapter sixty, cinoc 1

In ten years he gathered more than eight thousand of them, which contain, obscurely, the trace of a story it has now become almost impossible to hand on.
