Killing and coupling with the other (Re: Tiresias)

by o0o0o0o0o0o0o


To become the other one has to kill the other.
The other only remains other when it is separate from oneself.
Yet there is something of the other in oneself;
an aloof component that lingers to the side of one's 'unified self'.
It is because of the other lurking somewhere with oneself 
that one can recognise the other in the other
Yet one cannot quite grasp the other that sits beside oneself,
without killing it in the process and integrating it into oneself,
and in integrating the other one looses the self.
The other becomes the self and the self the other.
- an inseparable difference that create one another
