Re: [-empyre-] "what is to be done?" Lenin's words--forward from Claudia Reiche
Thinking over the following:
he difference does not lie between the repetition of words, events,
etc. and their former appearence, or even to notice that there will
have been a repetition but in the effect that htese have on the
ocntext in whihc they
have been presented - if one can not judge one's own effect then one
is lost to running

"the difference does not lie between the repetion of words etc. and
their former apppearence"
Does it mean, there is no difference or does it mean this difference is
irrelevant? If so- probably - , in what respect irrelevant?
If interested in effects? "...but in the effect that these have on the
context" So: as "effect" seems to be used in this quotation contrary
to "difference" what is so interessting about 'effect', if it has no
noticeable influence, one would neceessarily have to describe as
"difference" in the context?
Maybe the Freudian Insight from on the 'compulsion to repeat' from
"Rememberring, Repeating and Working through" and "Beyond the pleasure
principle" is forgotten (instead being acted out)? If according to
Freud's examples repeating were not imitating, but replacing (in order
not to remember)...
This I think was my point in noticing thatt Buergel uses Lenin's famous
title for the third leitmotif. Repeating it in a sort of 'radical chic'
for philosophers, but paying the price of not working through. At
least in this conceptual text we are invited to talk about here.
