I was no doubt thinking of thaumaturgical properties when I characterized inscription and incantation as parallel under the rubric of mobilité du signe
inscription: leaving trace
incantation: pushing out talking
When I meditate upon this further, I come to realize that “leaving trace” involves a degradation of sorts — it’s a crumb, a trickle, that is left behind. I also realize that “pushing out talking” is akin to a lapsing into vocalization that may be pure sound, a set of traces.
And so for day 724
