  • About Gemini and dark gods. The Dioscuri: Castor and Pollux.
    After the death of the first, the second one decided to live between Olympus and Hades (for every mount there is a cave, for every abyss there is a sky, ant trees have roots for both). Split twins, and one of these is split himself: immortal and dead - but not mortal (a paradox). This story apparently sentimental and fraternal (not so bloody considering the Greek customs) tells indeed about an usual, daily and persistent, neurasthenia: "the principle of not-contradiction."

    The fault of Aristotle was not to create an instrument, but to make it a foundation. From that time, the mind separates, instead of joining it joins in the opposition, instead of unifying (element that seems paradoxical to it, increasing the yoke of the ego)

    When the mirror is broken, the image that stood in front of it, it fades.




    Dei Gemelli e dei oscuri. I Dioscuri: Castore e Polluce.
    Alla morte del primo, il secondo decise di vivere fra l’olimpo e l’ade (per ogni monte c’è una cava, per ogni abisso c’è un cielo, e gli alberi hanno radici per entrambi). Gemelli scissi, uno dei quali scisso in se: immortale e morto - ma non mortale (un paradosso). Questa storia apparentemente sentimentale e fraterna (poco cruenta per i canoni greci) racconta in verità di una nevrastenia consueta, quotidiana e persistente: “il principio di non contraddizione”

    La colpa di Aristotele non fu quello di creare uno strumento, ma di farne un fondamento. La mente da allora disgiunge, invece di unire, raccorda in opposizione, invece di unificarsi (elemento che le pare paradossale, incrementando il giogo dell’io)

    Quando lo specchio si spezza, l’immagine che gli stava dinnanzi svanisce.
