Citational Fragments

Loie Fuller – Oyster

I say unto you: one must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a
dancing star. I say unto you: you still have chaos in yourselves.
—Nietzsche, “Zarathustra’s Prologue”

With every event, there is indeed the present moment of its actualization, the
moment in which the event is embodied in a state of affairs, an individual, or a
person, the moment we designate by saying ‘here, the moment has come’. The future
and the past of the event are only evaluated with respect to this definitive present.
On the other hand, there is the future and past of the event considered in itself,
sidestepping each present, being free of the limitations of a state of affairs,
impersonal, pre-individual, neutral.
