bataille on purpose

Posted by rigorousm on October 16, 2011

And it struck me that death was the sole outcome of my erection, and if Simone and I were killed, then the universe of our unbearable personal vision was certain to be replaced by the pure stars, fully unrelated to any external gazes gazes and realizing in a cold state without human delays or detours, something that strikes one as the goal of my sexual licentiousness: a geometric incandescence (among other things, the coinciding point of life and death, being and nothingness), perfectly fulgurating.

– George Bataille, The Story of the Eye p 33.
