Transcript of Text - Textum - Brain

Lucretius
textualization of nature
Galileo
“Philosophy [nature] is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes -- I mean the universe -- but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth.”
Primo Levi

"The key to this process is the ability to interpret biblical language with multiple meanings, i.e. to provide the consonant roots of words with multiple layers of meaning." Zvi Malachi,

grammatology
a joint (
arthron
, everything which operates between significant members,
between
nouns, substantives, or verbs.) has no sense because it does not refer to an independent unit, a substance or a being, by means of a categorematic unit. It is for this reason that it is excluded from the field of metaphor as an onomastic field. From this point on, the anagrammatic, using parts of nouns, nouns
cut into pieces
, is outside the field of metaphor in general as too is the syntactic play of 'joints'. Derrida,
White Mythology
Biblical Hermeneutics
"The opening of Scripture from within radically transforms the grammaticality of the text: the
ordinary connections between the letters of a word and between the words of a sentence are

broken
. Michael Fishbane,
The Exegetical Imagination
James Joyce
there has to be a thick fog of language whose elements are to be seen as well as heard. A work which seems to invoke the preliterate past of legend and myth only does so
etymologically
, for a legend is something to read and a myth is a tale and a tale is something carved with a knife. The thick chords of language have to be cut, and
usually only the eye can cut them
.
" Anthony Burgess,
Joysprick
(d) the dreamer was pulling a lady (a particular one, of his acquaintance) out from behind a bed. He himself found the meaning of the dream-element from the first idea that occurred to him. It meant that he was giving this lady preference."fn fn: "This example, like the next depends on a purely verbal point; the resemblance between the German words for 'pulling out' (hervorziehen) and 'preferring' (vorziehen)."
