Replying to LO31097 --

   but which ideas? we began with fear, hunger, sex drive. words
   came from noises which meant danger, lust, something not genteel,
   something not sophisticated. i believe in the power of words, but
   not words like 'monadicty' or any of its cousings. why do we not
   speak plainly to each other, particularly here, where language is
   our only means of understanding each other. i do not see you,
   Andrew, a thing very different than saying 'i see you' to one of
   my friends. this academic need of western man to find new words,
   to find more complexity in places where there is none makes me
   fear for knowledge, for intellectuality. can you read Baudelaire
   and understand all of the innuendo? can you read Goethe and
   understand all of the history with which he surrounded his words?
   can you understand the poetry of Garcia-Lorca without understding
   his choice of mates and political friends. to hell with
   essentialities. to man with essen! tials. before we befuddle
   mind with language more, we must clarify and forget our academic
   aspirations. man loves to be understood. superman loves to be
   ununderstandable. i don't like Nietzsche.
