Birthday Blues . . .

. . .

"You say it's your birthday
It's my birthday too, yeah
They say it's your birthday
We're gonna have a good time
I'm glad it's your birthday
Happy birthday to you"

(John Lennon & Paul McCartney, "Birthday")



"This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper."

(T.S. Eliot, "The Hollow Men")

The Three Virtues: Imperceptibility, Indiscernibility, and Impersonality

“To be present at the dawn of the world. Such is the link between imperceptibility, indiscernibility, and impersonality – the three virtues. To reduce oneself to an abstract line, a trait, and to find one’s zone of indiscernibility with other traits, and in this way enter the haecceity and impersonality of the creator. One is then like grass: one has made the world, everybody/everything, into a becoming, because one has made a necessarily communicating world, because one has suppressed in oneself everything that prevents us from slipping between things and growing in the midst of things.”

(Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari, A Thousand Plateaus. Trans. Brian Massumi)
