Backward Paraliterature Glossary!

Terms Glossary Paraliterature Glossary gives discussions not of thing-ness "Korperding",but questions of non-thingified Being "Geistding"! "Paraliterature"?

 "Paraliterature"?As maybe got attentioned and disclosed by Jodey Castricano,that in the last thirty years,cryptominesis as a writing practice of Jacques Derrida's later works,which appearing with increasing frequency accompanying the living-dead,the revenant,the phantom and the crypt,along with their effects of haunting and mourning,such a practice of encryption in Derrida's writing bears traces of being "ghost-written",and such a cryptomimesis functions in terms of textual mime to produce,in part refer to as "Paraliterature",a hybrid of literature and criticism,art and science,in other names,cryptography or phantomime,since these terms draw attention to the uncanny dimensions of a writing practice that takes place as a ghost of crypt-effect of haunting and mourning.

 Cartesian Subjectivity:The theory of the autonomous individual that had its beginnings in Descartes reached its zenith in Kant.All subsequent theories of intersubjectivity owe a fundamental debt to Kant's development of the categories of consciousness.the subjectivity of the modernity got developed by Hegel and Marx.

  In historicizing these categories of consciousness by Kant,Hegel moved the discussion to a qualitatively different level,in fact a level where the eventual unraveling of any supposedly well-grounded autonomy or integrity became a virtual certainty.1

  As father David Ray Griffin pointed out,"First,for Descartes,there was no problem in asserting the existence of consciousness,as he simply assumed that God,in creating the world,has created minds as well as bodies ex nihilo.But philosophers today presuppose a naturalistic,evolutionary worldview.Materialists and dualists,both presupposing a materialistic view of the ultimate units of nature,must affirm that conscious experience somehow emerged out of the entities wholly devoid of experience.For dualists,this means the emergence of minds, as a new kind of actuality(or substance); for materialists,this means the emergence of consciousness as a new property of matter.In either case,this kind of emergence is hard to make intelligible."

  Again,dualists,by virtue of distinguishing between the mind and the brain,are able in principle to affirm the reality of nonsensory perception,through which norms could be apprehended,and some dualists do make this affirmation.But they still have the problem of being unable to explain how a nonphysical mind can affect the physical body,so dualists cannot really explain how norm-guided behavior is possible.

  Dualism and materialism,in sum,are complete failures with regard to our hard-core commonsense assumption about our own conscious experience.They,accordingly,must be regarded as woefully inadequate.This woeful inadequacy suggests that the world must in reality be radically different from the world as portrayed by both dualists and materialists.2

 crypt:a crypt is a room under a church,used in former times for burying people.,"the crypt...belongs to someone else"...a crypt is "the lodging,the haunt of a host of ghosts".4,Jodey's view point is that the word crypt",should always be thought of as being put between quotation marks,remind of "teeth","decomposition","assimilation",and especially "incorporation".As Derrida remarks "the crypt is the vault of a desire",suggest a certain architecture keeps a desire "safe" from assimilation and therefore "alive".7,and for Jodey's view,the concept of the crypt got used by Abraham and Torok to designate a unique intrapsychic topography which inexpressible mourning erects inside the subject as a secret tomb which houses the idealized dead other as living.The crypt got seen as a formation constituted through the fantasy of incorporation,which stimulates introjection.And there is some section description about the crypt's structure by Abraham and Torok in "Mourning or Melancholia".8.Derrida suggest that "the crypt...belongs to someone else"12;a crypt is "the lodging,the haunt of a host of ghosts"13.The crypt is a textual device enabling words to point to at least two different things at the same time,the effect is a complex and paradoxical textual structure that extends an invitation to the reader to learn how to countersign.As learning to write the way the Wolf Man spoke,be understood in terms of solicitation and provocation,as to Derrida,this is why reading-writing is "something one can never do alone," because the structure of the crypt always implies an other,a revenant that is yet to come14.and the crypt,in Fors,got considered as an undiscoverable place,"the crypt keeps an undiscoverable place,with reason"(xii),its evident comes by the logic of haunting,transgenerationally,haunting produces "the Thing" as a kind of contractual effect predicated upon "what is engaged and bound",as Derrida mentioned the spectral effects of the temptation of memory in Specters20.As an artifice or architecture,an artifact,Derrida ever mentioned crypt produces a cleft in space,as an external to the interior27."the double pressure of contradictory forces(of desire)" got mentioned by Derrida-Castricano as what is kept "safe" in the "secret interior",this double pressure formed the crypt in the first place.

 crypt's structural property:for the crypt's structural property,JacquesDerrida ever mentioned that the crypt houses "the ghost that comes haunting out of the Unconscious of the other" and that "the crypt from which the ghost comes back belong to someone else.", and in order to sign,the name "crypt" need an equally uncanny structure,the ear of the other,and designates a place,"a very specific and peculiar place".3

 crypt effect of interiority:the (crypt) effect of interiority,or what can "take place" can do so only by producing concealment,which is accomplished by "constructing a system of partitions,with their inner and outer surfaces",in fact, is everywhere concerned with a certain "beyond place","non-place" or "no-place"[non-lieu],which tellingly described by Derrida as "the other place".5...and In effect,the crypt is a model and a method of producing concealment or what Heidegger calls aletheia,therefore,the crypt is not merely a metaphor for the unconscious,"hidden,secret,underground,[or] latent" nor as a "literal meaning",but rather as a term referring to a writing practice that takes into account a secret,a tomb,a burial,and a return,aspects of what Derrida calls "metaphoricity itself."6.The crypt effect,in short,"is one of continuous displacement in which the vacillating undecidability of one's position contributes to a reading and a writing of the text of the other,a notion which is suggested by Derrida's description of the crypt as a paradoxical 'topography of inside outside'."

 Cryptomimesis:For Cryptomimesis,the displacement is accomplished through a writing "that takes the form of everything a crypt implies:topoi,death,cipher"9,Dr.Jodey Castricano give such a definition:in short,Cryptomimesis is a burial practice that,like incorporation,preserves desire,keeping it alive in a complex architecture,to keep the object preserved or entombed,kept "apart" and alive "inside the inside",as what Derrida calls the Crypt as "the vault of desire"10,hunt for ghost is one reason cryptomimesis always a memory work,a ghostly memory work,as in the case of Freud's devil and Derrida's Marx obsessed25.And a cryptomimesis,as the work of mourning,and as a case in which writing means history as well as production of the ghost,is to learning to let the "(plurivocal) spirit speak",as in "Fors" Derrida attentioned to the Wolf Man's Magic Word,or the Wolf Man's allosomes(like tieret),motivate a labyrinthine structure wait the reader/ear,Castricano made a comment that Derrida's writing practice,or she named it as "Cryptomimesis",as an "art of chicanery:judicial pettifogging or sophistic ratiocination"(Fors,xlii)26.and a cryptomimesis,involves the production of an uncanny space,"of writing and reading the other writing and reading(the other).",as Derrida remarks the possibility of a writing predicated upon the return of the (name of the) dead signing in the ear of the he remarks "I think one writes also for the dead",as he remarks that the crypt is "the very condition of the whole enterprise,its element and its method"(Forsxiii),the crypt should not be read in terms of traditional allegoresis,rather to be considered in terms of a particular "engagement",understand as a contract with the dead.

 cryptic operation:a Cryptic operation got mentioned by Derrida in Fors(xxxvi-vii),a cryptic operation,or to crypt,is a cipher,"a symbolic or semiotic operation that consists of manipulating a secret code,which is something one can never do alone...[Cryptic operation involves] verbal machinery or machinations,often lexical or even normal.A machine,yes,and a calculating shrewdness",and to "arrange" ourselves in a "performace system" evoked by cryptomimesis might be thought of as the "dizziness of mind",requires what Castricano suggested,a "imagining activity" as where unthinkable return a haunting implied,the work of the phantom,the phantom cannot be thought.

 Cohabitation:the appearance of "cohabitation,at the [Wolf Man's] core" by his sister and his father,each "distinct from him","in Derrida's work,what is produced is the coming of the other as a textual effect"?11.

 crypt to speech:the path from crypt to speech?As discussed and attentioned by Dr.Jodey,that Gregory Ulmer ever comments regarding the language of the Wolf Man about a representation in learning to countersign,mentioned in the scene of Wolf Man's fetish different from the usual prcesures of representation,which means the symbolizing or hiding of one word behind anothers,or one thing by a word or a word by a thing.Rather "his names were generated by picking out from the extended series of 'allosemes'(the catalogue of uses available for a given word),a particular usage,which is then translated into a synonym(creating thus even greater distance from the secret name).",and The path from crypt to speech may follow either semantic or phonic paths,with the play between homonyms and synonyms being part of the mechanism...The linkage of the uttered word to the secret name is so tortuous,a relay-labyrinth of [what Derrida describes as] "non-semantic associations,purely phonetic combinations."15.This "relay-labyrinth(ine)" design of cryptomimesis got traced by Derrida with evocation of the crypt,the phantom and the return of the living-dead(tropes and topoi) to demonstrate the (bodily) remains of the dead(that is,"all ontologization,all semanticization-philosophical,hermeneutical or psychyoanalytical"(speters,page 9.),as a Cryptomimesis in Dr.Jodey's viewpoint,it can be Derrida's compositional break with traditional "mimesis" linked to "the concept of nature", with the "service of ...ontotheological humanism",including the values and assumptions of realism.16.

 Churchill:Churchill is a pet's name,a Cat's name,short as Church,feed by Louis Creed and Rachel in the novel Pet Sematary written by Stephen King.

 crypt's tripartite economy:crypt's tripartite economy,of desire,indebtedness,and haunting,may approached through Gothic texts evocation of the "disgusting",in the Gothic texts,the uncanny relationship Derrida evoked between writing and the living-dead demonstrate that disgusting actually prevents mourning because it is "unassimilable"17.what returns manages to evoke the unrepresentable as "the absolute other of the system"

 Christ Death  Christ:Christ here means Jesus of Nazareth (c. 5 BC/BCE – c. 30 AD/CE), also referred to as Jesus Christ or simply Jesus, is the central figure of Christianity. Most Christian denominations venerate him as God the Son incarnated and believe that he rose from the dead after being crucified.In the story of Jesus Christ,for the Christ's death to have redemptive meaning,Christ must return from the dead,but such an occasion of return,or Jesus Christ's Resurrection,inspires not "joy" but rather horror."In other words,whatever returns had better be Christ,or there is going to be trouble".As the story of Jesus Christ resurrection from the dead,it implies salvation from death,or it means offers eternal life(or presence).The word is often misunderstood to be the surname of Jesus due to the numerous mentions of Jesus Christ in the Christian Bible. The word is in fact a title, hence its common reciprocal use Christ Jesus, meaning The Anointed One, Jesus. Followers of Jesus became known as Christians because they believed that Jesus was the Christ, or Messiah, prophesied about in the Tanakh (which Christians term the Old Testament).So the Christ is a problem.

 condemnation of writing:"For the written to be the written it must continue to 'act' and to be legible even when what is called the author of the writing no longer answers for what he has written,for what he seems to have signed...This essential drifting due to writing as an iterative structure cut off from all absolute responsibility,from consciousness as the authority...writing orphaned and separated at birth[or,in this case,death] from the assistance of its father,is indeed what Plato condemned in the Phaedrus.If Plato's gesture is,as I believe,the philosophical movement par excellence,one can measure what is at stake here."18.

 Chakra:Nexus of biophysical energy residing in the human body, aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. In various traditions chakras are associated with multiple physiological functions, an aspect of consciousness, a classical element, and other distinguishing characteristics.

 Channeling:Process of receiving messages or inspiration from invisible beings or spirits.

 Clairvoyance:Extra-sensory perception whereas a person perceives distant objects, persons, or events, including perceiving an image hidden behind opaque objects and the detection of types of energy not normally perceptible to humans. Typically, such perception is reported in visual terms, but may also include auditory impressions (sometimes called clairaudience) or kinesthetic impressions.

 crack:see heredity(crack) and Question of Ghost

 crossing:the crossing,or the notion of crossing,or as Death is at the center,and we cannot get from one to the other without passing through death.Dr.Castricano pushed out a case of the Wolf Man's translation suggested by Abraham and Torok,that the word "tieret","to rub"19,and suggested that what is at stake in crossing the abyss separating the real from the symbolic in the word "imago".

 case:to examine the word case,it calls attention to:(1).to the instance of a thing's occuring;(2).to writing as a "case history" as in the record of a person's ancestry,psychoanalytic record,or medical history of disease;(3).to what encloses something in a box;(4).to law as settled by decided case,and (5).to the grammatical term to identify a pronoun."Case" derives from the Latin casus,fall,which in French in tomber,and its cognate capsa(copere hold).

 contractual aspects of language:for contractual aspects of language,when Jacques Derrida used the phrase "what is engaged and bounded" to describe the crypt effect of writing,"he makes explicit the contractual aspects of language in terms of indebtedness,inheritance,promise,pledge,and betrothal,all of which imply the spirit of return in that which is yet to come,a phenomenon which Derrida calls elsewhere a 'hauntology'."

 crypt effect of writing:see contractual aspects of language.

 case for writing:see contractual aspects of language.Derrida makes a case for writing accordingly when he considering Heidegger over the issue of "essence"(Heidegger in his essay noted "The Thing" makes a case for an a priori necessity of essence),Derrida argues in "Fors" that the "Thing" is necessarily a 'crypt effect',Dr.Castricano remined that "not because it is predicated upon the notion of language as the 'house' of being in which man 'dwells'--these metaphors evoke a particular nostalgia for 'home'--but rather upon the understanding of language being motivated by and/or performative of its ties with the dead as well as being performative of the 'subject' as a spectral effect (of the text and thus of writing)".See also contractual aspects of language.

 cryptophore:the cryptophore,when talk about the economics of revenance,or the system of exchange,Derrida remarks that "the cryptophore engages itself toward the dead,grants the dead,as collateral,a mortgage within itself,a pledge within the body."21.for example,in the case of Pet Sematery,the mortgage example is the son of Creeds,Gage,since it is the son who is a mort/gage,literally,a 'dead pledge' that,paradoxically,returns from the grave to fulfill a contract.which arouses the uncanny link between text and mortgage.

 cryptonymy:cryptonymy,or the Wolf Man's cryptonymy,Ulmer-Derrida-Castricano suggested and discovered the cryptonymy of the Wolf Man,that is part of the name,part of the proper name,through a series of secret links or labyrinth,or "multiplicity of heterogeneous places",play between "homonyms and synonyms",the Wolf Man hide his proper name and secret name in the allosemes of a Verbarium,such like tieret,goulfik,vidietz.22.

 crypt analysis:crypt-analysis,the crypt could not be read either literally or as a metaphor because it is the condition of reading itself,in these terms,crypt-analysis avoids turning a text into a catalogue of hieroglyphics in which one system of symbols is merely converted to another,it is productive.23.

 consanguinity:noun.1. relationship by descent from a common ancestor; kinship ( distinguished from affinity).2. close relationship or connection.Origin: 1350–1400; Middle English consanguinite (< Anglo-French ) < Latin consanguinitās. See consanguineous, -ity.

 cryptic division:the cryptic division,or the division of interior and exterior,in Derrida's case,the crypt marks this division,a threshold,marks the border of interior and exterior:"what the crypt commemorates [says Derrida],as the incorporated object's 'monument' or 'tomb',is not the object itself,but its exclusion,the exclusion of a specific desire from the introjection process:A door is silently sealed off like a condemned passageway inside the Self,become the outcase safe".24.

 cross:cross,as a verb,suggests misunderstandings(at cross-purposes) as well as translations and adverb,cross means intersecting,passing from side to side,and contrary or opposed.For related with the question of the text,cross got reminded by Derrida as to whatever intersects."whatever intersects must necessarily cross.",with the word cross,the notion of of textual intersection becomes a complex issue draws attention to its own indeterminacy."the place of intentionality in the possibility of meaning,and in any case the context as indeterminable.",see also writing-parasitic,distinction between pure speech act and parasitic writing.
 In its Christian terms,the word cross means both a promise and a sacrifice,Jodey suggested and identified with Derrida with its side as anagrammatic ambiguity of words as infinite,multi-dimensional crosswords puzzles comprised (1).not only of words.but also of (2)words as things,(3).parts of words,and (4).words that translate the unspeakability of other words or letters.As mimes the fantasy of incorporation,according to Derrida,this process,(this crosswords),does not consist "in representing-hiding one word by another,one thing by another,a thing by a word or a word by a thing,but in picking out from the extended series of allosemes,a term that then(in a second-degree distancing) is translated into a synonym"(Fors.xli-xlii).And these words are "as multiply determined as rebuses",marks "the threshold between introjection and incorporation."

 contamination:....see also stage contamination.

 cryptic topography:or topoi,the performativity of cryptic spacing,"What we will call (intrapsychic) topos is the condition in us that enables us to speak of any place whatsoever;we will call (intrapsychic) force that without which we would not understand any phenomenon of intensity...These terms attempt the impossible:to grasp through language the very source from which language emanates"(xxxii).See also topographical strategy,enclaveenclosure.

 cleft:cleft,got used by Derrida to denotes a space or division made by cleaving(breaking,splitting),a violent movement resulting in a fissure or a split."This is the law of the production of an inside",such a splitting,suggested Kristeva-Castricano,is "found at the heart of the functioning of signification",as a split or "gap" between the signifier and signified,it(the break) "that established what Lacan calls the place of the Other as the place of the 'signifier'."..."where the Other refers to a hypothetical place or space,the Other is,therefore,the 'place' in which is constituted ear of the other.This spacing is always already a matter of sending,of the post",in a Derridian concept,that is "the first coming of the other"("Mnemosyne"22).as unconscious,the recognition of desire got bound up with the desire for recognition.See also enclosure,alterity.

 collage effect:collage effect,Ulmer-Castricano suggested that a "writing that produces over time what might be called a 'collage effect'(Ulmer,"The Object"88),as what Derrida write in Glas,such kind of writing produces "howllowings,holes [and] lateral marks in depth" is predicated upon the logic of a certain spacing that exceeds thetic referentiality,as a writing in which images of gods [are] set,niched,embedded,driven in, tattooed on the columns escapes traditional mimesis,for it follows the logic of encryption,a writing practice that mimes the psychic process of cryptic incorporation.This kind of wriring,"as writing,it produces what can best be called the correspondence of the uncanny.".28.

 countersign:countersign,which attentioned to describe the conditions of all textuality,that a text promises the arrivant itself,especially when it is unconscious or disavowed,as thinking of the phantom in Derrida's concept,may "contrary to what good sense leads us to believe...It is a thinking of the past,a legacy that can come only from that which has not yet arrive--from the arrivant itself",given that a revenant is both a legacy and a promise,haunting always points towards a past and a future,given that the conditions of textuality in general,draws attention to the matter of reading and writing for the dead,or the question about address onself to a spectre? or address to a spectre,as Derrida's use of "with",as conversation,talk with the ghost,"with" produces a sense of simultaneity and doubleness,a cryptomimesis talk with ghost means a doublenss,or not only conversation with,but "whether one knows it or not","to be used by them".What lives on is the signature,to countersign,or in Derrida's sense by "starting from the Other that writing thus gives a place and forms an event."

 category of doubles:category of doubles.hovering between life and death,the real and unreal,designated by a series ghostly terms(eidõlon,phantasma,phasma,and psuchē).at note 6.Kas Saghafi noted:"The distinction between the living and the dead has been at the source of every thought of the image.The entire history of the West could be written by tracing the appearance and subsequent translation of limit-terms such as psuchē,eidõlon,phantasma,and phasma.What is called for is a non-Platonic interpretation of these terms.",Dr.Kas proposed a call of non-Platonic interpretation about the doubles.and give a list of a long list of the doubles29,and give a detailed introduction about the archaic and Attic Greece tradition about the birth of doubles,which bounded with death and funerary practice,see birth of the doubles,doubles.

 citational writing:Dr.Kas,when discuss Derrida about Blanchot,mentioned that Derrida's text repeatedly quotes Blanchot according to what he calls "a new thinking of citation[une nouvelle pensee de la citation](Par 50,25)".This "citational or recitational[recitative] writing," in a gesture of affirmation,makes room for the voice and the words of the other(Par 23)30.

 close-distance relation:Kas attentioned,that Derrida asked what is the close-distant relation[la relation proche-lointain]?What is the proximity of the nearby,of nearness or closeness?"The thing" certainly may be close by or near,but proximity itself can never be said to be near:"The proximity of the near is not another thing but the near thing,nothing other than the near thing[n'est pas autre chose que la chose proche],but it is not near"(Par 36).Thus,"the more one attempts to approach the proximity of what approaches[de ce qui s'approche],the more this proximity,which is wholly other[tout autre] and thus infinitely distanced,hollows itself out"(Par 37).and Kas proposed this double bind affects everything,"No opposition or identity is pertinent between the near and the far.This double bind between the near and the far 'affects everything,everything that is,that is,everything that presents itself,is present,comes,advenes,happens,exists,[affects] the essence of the event and the event of essence'(Par 37).It imprints 'a strange rhythm on our discourse,on our choice of words,on the construction of our sentences,and especially on the idiom of the word pas."31.

 20: see Specters,page 13~14:"among all the temptation I will have to resist...there would be the temptation of memory:to recount what was for me,and for those of my generation who share it during a whole lifetime,the experience of Marxism,the quasi-paternal figure of Marx,the way it fought in us with other filiations,the reading of texts and the interpretation of a world in which the Marxist inheritance was- and still remains,and so it will remain-absolutely and thoroughly determinate.One need not be a Marxist or a communist in order to accept this obvious fact.We all live in a world,some would say a culture,that still bears,at an incalculable depth,the mark of this inheritance whether in a directly visible fashion or not."
 21: see Fors,xxxviii.
 22: see Fors,xlvii.When Derrida mentioned the Wolf Man's Verbarium,there is some comments:"The Wolf Man's Magic Word show how a sign,having become arbitary,can remotivate itself.And into what labyrinth,what multiplicity of heterogeneous places,one must enter in order to track down the cryptic motivation,for example in the case of TR,when it is marked by a proper-name effect (here,tieret),and when,consequently,it no longer belongs simply to the internal system of language.Such motivation does nevertheless function within the system and no linguistic consciousness can deny it.For example,when Turok(Turk,the Turkish flag in the dream of the moon with a star) says(?),means(?),translates(?),points out(?),represents(?),or in any case also imitates,induces the word-thing tieret."
 23: see Fors,xxxiv."To track down the path to the tomb,then to violate a sepulcher:this is what the analysis of a cryptic incorporation is like.The idea of violation[viol] might imply some kind of transgression of a right,the forced entry of a penetrating,digging,force,but the violated sepulcher itself was never "legal."It is the very tombstone of the illicit,and marks the spot of an extreme pleasure [jouissance],a pleasure entirely real though walled up,buried alive in its own prohibition."
 24: see Fors,xvii.
 25: see To Speculate-On 'Freud',Derrida suggested what is at stake in the ghostly memory work not only for "Freud" but also for "Derrida",about Freud's devil and those beyond Freud's self-analysis.which read:"Which is Freud's devil?The one that he counterfeits,or that he represents as the devil's 'advocate',doubtless in order to defend him judiciously,taking up his cause,the cause in the 'something else'["autre chose"]...Which is the devil that impels Freud to write?What the devil by impelling him to write in sum writes in his place without ever writing anything himself?Is this to be analyzed beyond Freud's self-analysis?And what are Freud's "unknown words" which are written with another hand,also his own,at this strange feast?Which is the revenant?To whom,to what,and from whence will he come back [revenir]?It is in the future that the question will be asked.",in the future?or the day belongs to ghost?

 27: see Fors,A crypt,says Derrida, is "not a natural place[lieu] but the striking history of an artifice,an architecture,an artifact:of a place comprehended within another but rigorously separate from it,isolated from general space by partitions,an enclosure,an enclave.So as to purloin the thing from the rest.Constructing a system of partitions with their inner and outer surfaces,the cryptic enclave produces a cleft in space,in the assembled system of various places,in the architectonics of the open square."(xiv), is "a place comprehended within another but rigorously separate from it,isolated from general space by partitions,an enclosure,an enclave...a safe:sealed,and thus internal to itself,a secret interior within the public square [the forum],but,by the same token outside it,external to the interior"(xiv).
