part 3

so I was right when I suspected all the business of the self as being a fake
I find now that Hume said that our ideas of identity is the product of a
huge mistake into which we fall as soon as we perceive time and space so all
my impressions of mister loneliness as one of my unchangeable objects is but
a fiction of my imagination by which he takes part to my life and co-exists
with me and all the shapes around and he is for me triangular squared
hexagonal in his motionless consistency and sharp pyramidal presence like a
modern sculpture of wood lead copper on a stone pedestal with a continuous
solid presence and an identity  never vacillating for ever identical to his
many others all reproducible in the age of mechanical reproduction not only
a mere hypothesis with no ratio no sure ground matter of fact naked or
dressed from head to toe he can stand in its silence and summarize two three
four concepts at once imagine how magic how gorgeous especially the
principle according to which factual space is constructed on much the same
ground as visual dominance and I can attribute to him tactual quality
smoothness roughness hardness in my capacity of an observer but I am not
sure I want to go that way  there is indeed one passage in my interior text
book that says never trust a shape for its appearance your impression should
be one of reflection prayer and obsession therefore my first denial will be
firm no easy parasitical relation between the eye the mind and from this
fact I'll let the blue be blue and turn the blue in white any moment  any
time on a circular stage or charge my ears with electricity to annihilate
all thoughts and fall asleep so my constructs fail to be such and meets a
lovely moon imperfect men in dreams of dissolution.
