“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Levi on the Rift

I like it. That's a very nice picture of Van Gogh's he's got there too.

Levi is using Derrida but it's roughly the same as what in Realist Magic I'm calling the rift: “is the simultaneous coming-to-presence of beings and their withdrawal.”
