We root back into antiquity via a thread of spectres. Rome projected its fall into Venice, which became the capitalist world, the spectralization of value. But Rome was built on the spectre of Greece, and Greek was Athena, the spectre of Homeric mind. In turn he reflected on Achilles and the war that primordially swept up this flash in the cosmos; "the west", lashed out and still reverberates in an absolutization of spectrality. This war was caused by a woman figuring as a spectre in the spiritual eye of an decadent race. And what was in the head of this woman? Seldom mattered anything so deeply nothing - seldom a more primordially repressed. Our world is a seal on irrelevance.
