Backward Paraliterature Glossary G!

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.

 Gage:Gage is a child,son of Louis Creed in Pet Semetary,When Gage returned,that become the nightmare of his father Louis,"a nightmare made real.",as Gage's return is out of his father's control,once he returned,Gage kills and then partially devours his mother Rachel,as a living-dead,Gage's return got considered by Dr.Castricano compared to Derrida's comments on the condemnation of writing.And Gage,as a son's name and a economic terminology got explained as "pledge,surety against which money was lent"

 Ghost:A ghost is a non-corporeal manifestation of the spirit or soul of a dead person which has remained on Earth after death.See also Question of Ghost,and Event."This visitor can be called Gast,or ghost,guest or Gespenst.",Derrida asked in SM,"What is a ghost?[qu'est-ce qu'un fantôme?]"...."what characterizes the specter,Derrida writes,is 'a supernatural and paradoxical phenomenality,the furtive and ungraspable visibility of the invisible,or an invisibility of a visible is also,no doubt,the tangible intangibility of a proper body without flesh,but always someone as someone other[quelqu'un comme quelqu'un d'autre](SM 27/7).Neither soul nor body,both one and the other,the specter is the 'becoming-body' of the spirit,'a certain phenomenal and carnal form' of the spirit(25/6),the 'deferred spirit',spirit as it defers and differs from itself(SM 216,217/135,136.)"...."The specter cannot simply be substituted for the simulacrum,for 'the ghost is a 'who'[un 'qui'](SM 75/41-42), 'It has a kind of body,' yet a body 'without property'(SM 75/41-42)...In fact, Derrida insists,'this being-there of an absent or departed one[disparu],'cannot be known for it does not belong to the realm of knowledge(SM 26/6).'"2,see also visor effect.

 Ghost Hunting:Ghost hunting is the process of investigating an alleged haunting. Typically, a 'hunting party' will involve 4-8 individuals who work as a team to collect evidence of paranormal activity. Each team member performs duties that are related to their particular field of expertise or interest. It is common practice for ghost hunters to behave in a scientific manner as they observe and record data using a variety of electronic gadgets, such as; EMF Meters, digital thermometers, infrared and night vision cameras, handheld video cameras, digital audio recorders, and computers.

 God:The name God refers to the deity held by monotheists to be the supreme reality. God is generally regarded as the sole creator of the universe. Theologians have ascribed certain attributes to God, including omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence, perfect goodness, divine simplicity, and eternal and necessary existence.From viewpoint of some E.T.(Extra-Terrestrial) archeologist,God and Angels are actually those ancient Extra-Terrestrial Beings,or Aliens who come to earth thousands years ago,who worshipped by ancestor of earthlings,one of the proof is that the Ārōn Hābrīt(אָרוֹן הָבְּרִית ‎‎) got supposed to be ancient micro-nuclear power station,which maybe hided by William in the money pit of Oak island.

 Guardian Spirit (Guardian Angel):A guardian angel is a spirit who protects and guides a particular person.

 germinal contemporary:the germinal contemporary,got used by Deleuze in his A Thousand Plateaus,that the child does not come 'before' the parents but is rather their 'germinal contemporary'.The becoming-child takes place in terms of the body without organs that functions not as a memory of childhood but as a 'childhood block'.The body without organs is the site of 'intense germen'.

 gift:the gift(le don),for Derrida,has always been a problem.Derrida contends that a gift cannot be given and remain a gift,for as soon as it is presented it demands restitution and becomes,thus,a debt.Instead,the gift is shown to be an (1).inheritance as well as a (2).debt,the security for which is unspeakable.For example,Dr.Castricano mentioned the example resurrection of Church,the cat,"It comes home,seemingly a free gift of some god;soon enough,though,the astonished doctor realizes a price has been paid.".And the gift "brings forward" "the iterability of transgenerational haunting through the notions of inheritance and indebtedness"1.And Church's return,or the return of the dead from the grave,is anything but free.

 goulfik:goulfik,as one of the allosemes of the Wolf Man,it got used by the Wolf Man to imago "the fly of his father's trousers".

 gala:gala,a hebrew verb,is the origin of the greek apokalupsis.It is called the Apocalypse.

 Ghost crocodiles:Nicolas Royle discuss about Freud's ghostly crocodiles story."In the middle of the isolation of war-time a number of the English Stand Magazine fell into my hands;and,among other somewhat redundant matter, I read a story about a young married couple who moved into a furnished house in which there is a curiously shaped table with carvings of crocodiles on it.Towards evening an intolerable and very specific smell begins to pervade the house;they stumble over something in the dark; they seem to see a vague form gliding over the stairs--in short,we are given to understand that the presence of the table causes ghostly crocodiles to haunt the place,or that the wooden monsters come to life in the dark, or something of the sort.It was a naive enough story,but the uncanny feeling it produced was quite remarkable."(U,p.367) [p.133.],it is about a House, a case of a haunted house (ein Haus in dem es spukt),a story about a new "home",about a house;foreground a sense of the familiar or ordinary: uncanniness is indissociably bound up with the ordinary or familiar.

 Gaze:Gaze,or regard,see the visor effect,Donner la mort,asymmetrical look.

 Ghost Dance: Ghost DanceGhost Dance is a 1983 British film directed by Ken McMullen. This independent film explores the beliefs and myths surrounding the existence of ghosts and the nature of cinema.Through the experiences of two women in Paris and London, Ghost Dance offers a stunning analysis of the complexity of our conceptions of ghosts, memory and the past. It is an adventure film strongly influenced by the work of Jacques Rivette and Jean Luc Godard but with a unique intellectual and artistic discourse of its own and it is this that tempts the ghosts to appear, for Ghost Dance is permeated with all kinds of phantasmal presence. The film focuses on philosopher Jacques Derrida who considers ghosts to be the memory of something which has never been present. This theory is explored in the film. This Film has also been compared with the following works; Celine and Julie Go Boating, Thelma & Louise, O Lucky Man, Sans Soleil, Week End, Viva Maria.

 Ghost works of Derrida:Derrida's works about thought of ghosts,phantoms,and specters:Dissemination(1972),The Truth in Painting(1978),Memoires:For Paul De Man(1988),Chaque fois unique,la fin du monde(2003).Kas Saghafi give a reference of a complete list about Derrida's discuss of ghost,at notes 174,and proposed that "on several accoasions he has gone on record admitting that specters have in fact haunted his texts for decades."(see.Kas.67.)

 ghostly terms:a number of related archiac and attic greek terms,such like eidõlon,phantasma,phasma,and psuchē,found in text from Homer onward.Dr.Kas Saghafi mentioned a common share about category of doubles of theses,"These terms,whether referring to the shades of the dead or the exact duplicate of a Homeric hero fashioned by a god,designate a category of doubles hovering between life and death,the real and the unreal.",see also birth of the doubles,category of doubles.

 ghost related terms with philosophy:,also philosophy terms related with ghost,what Dr.Kas Saghafi considered in the study about ghostly terms(eidõlon,phantasma,phasma,and psuchē),the serious study worthy in philosophy is to question how these terms have been tranlated in philosophical languages of the West---as figura,forma,simulacrum,effigy,and imago,hence "image",he proposed this translation and interpretation has been dominated by Platonism throughout the Western metaphysics.So it could also be called a question about Platonic or Platonism interpreted metaphysical equivalents of ghostly terms,or simply traditional metaphysical equivalents of ghostly terms.3,Derrida tried examined philosophy's relation to all that is ghost related,Dr.Kas concluded that according to Derrida it is in the dialogue of Plato,the status of "ghostly" is once and for all determined in the West.the section Plato's Pharmacy and The Double Session are attentioned,where Derrida made some reevaluate of the interpretation of mimēsis,rewrite terms with spectrality and the ghostly.see also discussion of mimēsis and mimetology,which traced to Socrates and Plato.see also order of appearance.

 Gazing:see Gaze.

 geometry of gazes:Derrida,in FD,discuss about the mourning of a friend no longer here,he proposed the geometry of gazes which opened a space,which about visibility of the body,and related with a strange topology,"When we say 'in us',when we speak so easily and painfully of inside and outside,we are naming space,we are speaking of a visibility of the body,a geometry of gazes....We are speaking of images.What is in us seems to be reducible to images,which might be memories or monuments,but which are reducible in any case to a memory that consists of visible scenes that are no longer anything but images,since the other of whom they are the images appears only as the one who has disappeared or passed away[comme le disparu],as the one who,having passed away,leaves 'in us' only images"(FD 198/159).Kas proposed that complete interiorization is not possible because of another organization of space and visibility,a strange topology where the inside and outside could no longer be delimited simply by drawing a line(FD 198/159).4

 ghostly neutral figure:see neutral figure

 ghostly figure:Kas pointed a case about ghostly figure about encounter in Celui qui ne m'accompagnait pas the narrator gazes.quoted some useful description of it:"The motionless figure appears larger than life,as it is seen high above at the top of the stairs.Viewed just where the staircase disappears out of view,the figure remains suspended before the narrator's gaze.The encounter resembles the sighting of an apparition or an image.","The interjection begins to give the narrator the impression that he is witness to the endless repetition of an event and an exchange.It is as if the figure keeps making a return in the same manner,and the narrator repeatedly has the sensation that someone is looking at him."...the figure keeps returns,and Kas raised a question about the common of Blanchot's recits?among the figure,the unknown,the shore,and the stranger.and Kas recognized they are not a traditional figures,but a figures of the other5.

 3: see ibid.under title "The Ghost of Jacques Derrida.Ghost",page 67.a further note given at the related notes 9,which traced the source of the word image,it noted:"9.The sources of the word image in english are:'a.F.image(13th C in Littré),in 11th and 12th C.i'magene=Pr.image,emage,It.Im(m)agine,Sp.imagen,Pg.imagem,ad.L.imāgo,imāgin-em...containing the same root as im-itarī'(Oxford English Dictionary).The image bears a relationship to the effigy,a pictorial likeness of the dead,in particular of royalty.See,for example,Plato's Laws,where,in a description of funerary practices,it is remarked that 'dead bodies[nekrôn sómata] are said to be eidōla'(XII,959).Also,in the Histories Herodutus recounts that a substitute is fashioned for the royal corpse:'Whenever a king is slain in war,they make an eidōlon of him and carry it out on a well-bedecked bier'(VI,58)."
