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.
