Becoming is always of a different order than filiation. It concerns alliance. If evolution includes any veritable becomings, it is in the domain of symbioses that bring into play beings of totally different scales and kingdoms, with no possible filiation. There is a block of becoming that snaps up the wasp and the orchid, but from which no wasp-orchid could ever descend.

there are those moments when you are not there, when there is nothing at all to lift you, to elevate you, move you, and you turn, inward; sour or outward, grasping and fumbling, perhaps it is better to wallow for a moment in the soft misery, biding your time patiently, in wait of the next chord, the next light, the next sublime human interaction, which will sweep you into it with all of its force. Just wait. And remember.

outside there are lights moving, and bodies moving, but my own body is still a formless craving, gasping at the beauty of those fluctuation, enabling others

where you going to get that fire?

and I ask them to sit some, my eye gasp, body heavy, body; mind sharp.

“darling, we are going to have to break some shit, to give each other what we want….. I only hope that you are up for it. “

we need to change this, reinvigorate, re-impassion, our relation to each other, and to how we consume, interact, live, really integrally question, what we are doing, in every relational aspect of our being.

problem is, the trapping are many, capitalism destroying the strings of intesnsities, and of reinvention, which are necessary for a human to be a healthy developing organism, who is not hooked up on heart medicine, white sugar, twelve hour work days, television, etc.

The theater, which is in no thing, but makes use of everything — gestures, sounds, words, screams, light, darkness — rediscovers itself at precisely the point where the mind requires a language to express its manifestations. To break through language in order to touch life is to create or recreate the theatre.
