Time passes. A lot of time passes. I’m waiting for it to stop, for it to gather itself into an image, of myself, of my life, of the world. I’m waiting for the movement to stop and reflect itself back to itself – reflection is the condition of action, isn’t it?

The accident is their negative observation that the event does not immediately provide more grist for their alimentary operations: more substance for their established forms of content. They are precisely what make the event an expression of potential.
7 The current of postmodernism following from Baudrillard was perhaps given its most surrealist-absurd formulation in the work of Arthur and Marilouise Kroker. Seriously absurd currents pivot on the later work of François Lyotard on Kant. The sublime is absurd by Kantian definition. As a ‘concept without an intuition’ to ground it, it carries an empty excess of signification (like Lévi-Strauss’s mana, the sublime object of anthropology). For an alternative to the postmodern sublime centring instead on the analytic of the beautiful, see Melissa McMahon, Steven Shaviro, and Stephen Zagala in this volume.
