western un-culture

Cultures, taken in themselves, are not moving towards each other. Or if they are, they are doing so as slowly as tectonic plates. The dream of reconciling them all one day is an absurdity. From the point of view of the universal, which is our point of view, they can only exterminated- including our own.The space left for any culture by Western un-culture can only be that of le mort [the dead man, but also the "dummy" at cards].
