SJ: “Rong—Wrong is lamp(ed) by language. It communicates and distils itself (through time and form) the doctrine that there isn’t anything, anywhere anymore, and thus, seeks to correspond and confront the dangers of self-deception and the ultimate impossibility of existence in a world of absolutes—the hands are a-washed with spirits, he said.
The object (itself, but without a name) is produced (edited, printed, published and dispersed) via a multi-fold of invisible correspondences that cannot be wholly transcribed. The gestalt forever remains incomplete. Our residues are continually and terminally unresolved.”
