The one - an utterly indivisible, non-temporal, unchanging nothingness - generates thought, which is equally unitary but somehow secondary. A simple mark, an act. It is only when this second principle (the peras) turns around and attempts to grasp itself (the apeiron) that multiplicity is born. Procession and return - active and reactive force. This type of dynamic or interplay can be described only by pure metaphysics. Does it have any meaning? Can we apply it to commodity fetishism, the symptom and the logic of representation itself, generating a product that hides the process that generated it? Are there invisible, causal forms that hide behind that which they generate even as that which they generate turns around and seeks to emulate or grasp something that can no longer be found?
