Example text

Supposing there were only five or six persons in the world who had the gift of remembering (as there are some who have supernatural visions and paranormal perceptions), we would say of them: "How wonderful are these beings in whom the past is stored! They explain to us such hosts of things around us which have no present utility. " These seers would be rated above prophets; pure memory above the highest genius. A widespread epidemic amnesia would change the values of the world of the intellect.

You are not I, since you see me and I don't see myself. What is missing for me is this "I" whom you can see. And what you miss is the "you" I see. And the better we get to know each other, you and I, the more we shall reflect each other, yet the more "other" we shall be. And all the rest will be identical, perhaps shared between us. And the more our looks diverge, the more 26 ODDS AND ENDS we lose sight of each other, the more indistinguishable we shall be. I see you so as not to be you, since I am not Yon.

Another world. Fatigue opens our eyes, at long last, on a new world. The somnolence that comes in theaters crushes out forms, makes the lights seem garish and everything grow tremulous; voices sound preternatural or false. We have an impression of having left the world which we can still see and whose absolute movement now becomes perceptible—as though we were no longer in the same ship. Ceasing to keep track of the voyage, we watch everything slide past en bloc: the whole body of things on which we, just now, were standing.
