Tears of Eros

by Φ

Bataille

Only in humor is an answer given to the ultimate question of human life.

Can the meaning of a precise moment appear all at once?
It need hardly be pointed out: only the succession of moments can become clear.
One moment has meaning only in its relation to other moments.
We are at each instant only fragments deprived of meaning if we do not relate these fragments to other fragments.
How can we refer to this completed whole?
