la balade (hypothesis 6)

« Did it matter then, she asked herself, walking towards Bond Street, did it matter that she must inevitably cease completely; all this must go on without her; did she resent it; or did it not become consoling to believe that death ended absolutely? but that somehow in the streets of London, on the ebb and flow of things, here, there, she survived, Peter survived, lived in each other, she being part, she was positive, of the trees at home; of the house there, ugly, rambling all to bits and pieces as it was; part of people she had never met; being laid out like a mist between the people she knew best, who lifted her on their branches as she had seen the trees lift the mist, but it spread ever so far, her life, herself. » (Virginia Woolf, Mrs Dalloway)

time present and time past (hypothesis 3)

Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future,
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.
But to what purpose
Disturbing the dust on a bowl of rose-leaves
I do not know.
Other echoes
Inhabit the garden. Shall we follow?
(T.S. Eliot ‘Burt Norton’ Four Quartets)

like delicate wallpapers (hypothesis 2)

« Precisely where they become controllable and objectified, where the subject believes himself entirely sure of them, memories fade like delicate wallpapers in bright sunlight. But where, protected by oblivion, they keep their strenght, they are endangered like all that is alive. » (Theodor Adorno, Minima Moralia)

grace notes (hypothesis 1)

« Not to write – what a long way there is to go before arriving at that point, and it is never sure; it is never either a recompense or a punishment. One must just write, in uncertainty and in necessity. Not writing is among the effects of writing; it is something like a sign of passivity, a means of expression at grief’s disposal. How many efforts are required in order not to write – in order that, writing, I not write. In spite of everything. And finally I cease writing, in an ultimate moment of concession – not in despair, but as if this were the unhoped for: the favour the disaster grants. Unsatisfied and unsatisfiable desire, yet by no means negative. There is nothing negative in ‘not to write’; it is intensity without mastery, without sovereignty, the obsessiveness of the utterly passive. » (Maurice Blanchot, The Writing of the Disaster)
