We are no longer in the era of the end, of the limits that restrain all positive projects. We are in the time of no time, the time of a disseminated and diffused non-present, though present nonetheless: the time when the power and efficacy of capitalism has managed to appropriate even the part of those whose part it was to have no part. Which means that this is the time when the savage anomaly, the outermost – beyond all knowledge and all power – which is also the innermost, is the mask of knowledge and power everywhere.
We are the innermost outside of a system status that cannot be formalized.
We are unable to narrativize capitalism into any kind of logic. The world – seen from the point of view of the dominant logics of power that are supposed to form it – is characterized most fundamentally by the spectacle it offers in its constant failure to form, to give form. Everywhere the sublime engulfs us; we are currently beyond the pillars. Such a time can only be occupied, adopted as one's own. Such an adoption is nothing other than the most radical dispossession. We are beyond the simulacrum.
