13. The obstacle shows up as maker to create a “something” from a “nothing.”

14. If this part, alone, is a “nothing” or a non-existent “something”, then the “obstacle” is likewise a “nothing” or a non-existent “something.”

15. It follows that there must therefore be two “nothings” or two non-existent “somethings.”

16. Should there be two “nothings” or two non-existent “somethings”, then one of them must be the “obstacle” for the other, which then breaks the other down into parts, itself becoming one of these very parts.

17. Likewise, the latter nothing or non-existent something, as obstacle for the former, splits this former into parts, itself becoming one of its very parts.

18. Thus, of their own accord, non-existent parts are created.

The Obstacle

The Différance after M


7. I shall depict the first part as this and the second part as that; I shall depict the transition from this part to that part as neither this nor that.

8. I shall depict neither this nor that as “the obstacle.”

9. Ergo, at bottom, existence is founded upon three elements: this, the obstacle, and that.

10. I shall depict non-existence as nil or one. It follows that I must depict existence by the number three.

11. Ergo, by breaking a singular void in two parts, I arrive at a trinity of existence.

12. So then, a singular void, upon encountering one or another obstacle, splits into parts that make up a trinity of existence.
