I am so excited
It looks like the idea to stage a reading of “8” here in Milan, Italy is becoming more and more probable!
Going to various theaters tomorrow to search space and then hopefully Skyping with BroadwayImpact about the details.
It’s exciting to see a project for philosophy turning into something tangible. Stoked.
"One who seeks the true causes of miracles, and is eager, like an educated man, to understand natural things, not to wonder at them, like a fool, is generally considered and denounced as an impious heretic by those whom the people honor as interpreters of nature and the Gods. For they know that if ignorance is taken away, then foolish wonder, the only means they have of arguing and defending their authority is also taken away."
— from Benedetto Spinoza’s Etica
"We must break with the classic rule of morality, which - on the pretext of realising a human potential - makes humanity dependent upon habits adopted once and for all … Behaviour can never be limited by its regular repetition, nor can it limit thinking itself"
"That everything is so “complicated,” that ‘I’ may be another, that something else thinks us in an aggression of thought, in a multiplication which is the multiplication of the body, or in a violence which is the violence of language—this is the joyful message. For we are so sure of living again (without resurrection) only because so many beings and things think in us[.]"
— Gilles Deleuze, ‘Phantasm & Modern Literature’ (in The Logic of Sense, trans. Mark Lester, p.298)
