<nettime-ann> sufi note


Letters written with ink (bits) do not really exist qua
letters. For the letters are but various forms to which
meanings have been assigned through convention. What really
and concretely exists is nothing but the ink. The existence
of the letters is in truth no other than the existence of
the ink which is the sole, unique reality that unfolds
itself in many forms of self-modification. One has to
cultivate, first of all, the eye to see the selfsame reality
of ink in all letters, and then to see the letters as so
many intrinsic modifications of the ink.
