Antigone, rebellious and intimate (7/7. love)

7th and final part : love

The desire of Antigone's family, she will not let her brother unburied ; Créon, his, wants to assert itself as king and shows its power. Antigone favors family ties who embody love and reveal a be. Creon sits his power by signing an act of law must establish its authority. The same word characterizes their action : desire. But desire does not recognize the desire in the other, we could believe, especially if one is trying to flatter the desire for himself, that desire any desire he meets knights. Between Creon and Antigone, it is the measure of desires that counts. Face to face, Antigone and Creon will increase the extent of their desires adversity they encounter. But the source of the desire of Antigone is it still understandable today ? Indeed, the desire of Antigone, this desire that is based on justice, justice done and visited the remains of his brother and the gods, This desire makes sense, because it is community, it is part of a city and a family, reduced vision of the city, and a belief, Antigone leans to the gods to challenge Creon. Antigone does not express a personal desire, defends an eternal law, she defends her duty to tell, to proclaim the front of any power that would think over it. Since when do we hear most anyone themselves up in public places to proclaim his duty cost him his life ? The worst ? We got used to the silence, this resignation, transcendental laws do not tell us much left, So nothing comes overhang and thus correct the laws that pass before us and surround us like rubbish in a stream of water. Communities that strengthened the individual within a space that protected him and allowed him to grow were shattered. The individual now looks like a crazy electron that can be built as wind gusts that exhaust and catch you off guard and the ever fade to taste the meaning of his life. Social life is based on the law and the only right, but in a place without geography composed of people above ground all rights are equal and crush in a heinous mess. Creon has the power. Antigone is the daughter of Oedipus. At a time when it is no more than having, to own, to acquire, Antigone weighs - since we must assess - little. The methodical destruction of all metaphysics amounts to a crime against humanity. Perhaps the greatest the world has known. Since a click, I can acquire all I have no need to know my desire to satiate. It is also understood that this individual desire that nothing protects his appetite accepts no limits, especially not the one posed by others ; then comes in envy, misguided desire, defile.

Antigone, rebellious and intimate (5/7. The authority)


5nd part : The authority

In ancient Greece, men know and recognize in the eyes of their families, their relatives, their community. Women reserve the mirror that is out of the beauty, femininity, seduction. The reflection is everywhere. "There is no place that sees you," wrote Rilke. Can we exist without reflection ? Can one be aware without knowing ? The man should not see in the mirror for fear of being absorbed by its image. This image that manages to make us forget that we are here. If we think that we see, we hear, it resonates in us, and also the dream. Our image escapes us as soon as we see it. So the woman fits into the mirror when the man could lose its foundations. The dream, binomial memory, conceals time and numbs. What do we see when and ? The look and reflect and fantasy intermingle and can not be separated. See and experience merges with the Greeks. See, know ... but not too much, for if man is a marvel, in the direction of an incident, a fascinating fracture, it also contains its own terror, it exterminates and torture, and it is the only "animal" in this case.

The identity is divided firstly into a base that is in us and we can not draw particular merit, our nature and education we received, and a constitutive movement of life that discovers items that are not listed in our nature or our education, but to be read at the height of our nature and our education. Much of this process happens without us even thinking about it. Yet it is essential, important and requires us to the ongoing review of this nature and of this education, as to the ongoing review of these developments through the prism of our nature and our culture. The balance, here again, is essential. There is no question of forgetting, or worse not be aware of our nature, forget or worse to lose the benefits of our education, to address the shores of novelty, or we will not be nothing but a tattered flag in the wind, we will have no way to judge the novelty and we risk seeing in this new some new, and to love him for it.

What does being above ground ?

The most illuminating example about human nature is in the New Testament when Peter and Jesus Christ speak together and Peter urges his master he believes his devotion quite sincere. So, Jesus told him that the rooster will not sung he will deny three times. The first place where every man is talking about it : weakness. Consideration of the limits of each, not always to solve it, but also to overcome, forced to reason from what one is and not from what is believed to be. Any man who does not know his weaknesses, who forget, that does not take into account is above ground as we got used to say today. Aboveground meaning that one is nourished by a pasture that is not ours, we deny his pasture grazing to find any other than his best, because other. Aboveground also means that the comments received could be obtained anywhere else in the world without this problem, About these rootless, translatable into any language and exportable as a "framework" computer. The phrase "above ground" forbidden to answer the question "where do you speak ? "And the first formula loves to ridicule the second as an identity or" extreme right ". By dint of trying to dodge the issue, it was destroyed. In the future it will not be possible to ask where it comes, because we have reached such a level of abstraction and uprooting that this issue will be even more sense.

Les funérailles servent à pointer avec une précision diabolique un dard qui vient crever l’abcès de la peine pour la laisser s’écouler avec douceur et onctuosité comme la perfusion d’un malade, elle hydrate celui qui reste sur le bord de la rive des vivants, elle lui apporte le réconfort de toujours être un peu avec la personne disparue, mais en même temps, elle lui rappelle son absence… Il est difficile de ne pas s’en délecter et de ne pas la détester en même temps. La perte change tout l’aménagement du vivant car il voit l’empreinte du mort partout, certaines pièces s’ornent de fleurs alors qu’elles ne l’ont jamais étéLe mort impose un prisme au vivant qui le voit dans des endroits où ce dernier n’a jamais mis les pieds. L’image mentale permet de se souvenir et d’imaginer et entrelace avec frénésie les fils de l’un avec les fils de l’autre dans une folle sarabande qui enivre et époumone jusqu’à ce que nous ne soyons plus capable de différencier ce qui est vrai de ce que nous inventons. Le temps n’y fait rien ou plutôt tricote-t-il cette confusion. Mais voulons-nous encore séparer le souvenir de l’imagination ?

We do not mourn someone & rsquo; a, c & rsquo; is the grief that shapes us, it is the loss of a loved that we model.

Meaning… des funérailles

The contemporary world s'émoustille using formula, make sense, perfect translation of the English expression, make sense. It is comforting to repeat this phrase without having truly sense of ..., thus picking up little things that make sense, but these are mini-found sense on the ground almost by accident? What are these sensesSkin grief who shall without that there is little or nothing if the residues of past meaning, a common sense, a good sense carved by centuries? Through the methodical destruction of the family, transmission between generations is lacking, the meaning of our actions is lost, must thereforeinventer sense, it is necessaryfabriquer sense, you have to give the illusion of living again, n & rsquo; have not abdicated. Trickery leans against ignorance, and here too, the swindle does not date one day. The meaning given by the death in the family, this sense almost completely forgotten today, is recalled by Antigone in Sophocles' play, where it stands as a guardian of values ​​that release, as they protect humans from animals. Antigone reaffirms what man can and can not; she grabs a force to protect us from our will to power and to teach us time to be responsible; a time nowadays entrusted to substitute family specialists, people who compose, and tenuous ties between them by the time.

Antigone, rebellious and intimate (6/7. The vocation)


That stories about identity! The word does not appear in either the Greek epic nor in tragedy. The identity at the time of Antigone leans on the line and belonging to a city. Identity is permeated rooting. The family and the city gathered in a virtual standard in full what the other had to know of itself during a first meeting. During antiquity, nobody protested his identity nor promulgated the, and no one decided his identity. He was not putting on a costume. The men were within their identity. The identity was akin to a load, we had to be worthy. She ruled the being and becoming. The modern age has made it a challenge, because it transformed the identity have, a sort of accomplishment that you can dress up or divest. In its modern fantasy to believe that we can choose everything all the time, modern times replaced with implacable method being by having. Yet this logic, this ideology has its limits: some things can be acquired, among them: otherness. Live his identity, be what one is, place his name, allow privacy and therefore the knowledge and deepening of his being, these are the prerequisites for a meeting with the other. The first difference between Creon and Antigone is located at that location, the land on which is built the fight, Antigone preserves embedded in it that gift of old, gods, these roots that defines the authority to which it leans to stand up to this man, son parent, the king, who marries the power of will and is blinded by it to not hear his own voice, its echo.
