Hold on there; please dilate upon this thing which is not, this
unextended name without being.

This seems quite insane to me.  Are you saying my cat has no experiences
of existence?  That my pain a few days ago when I once again walked into
a large oak branch while mowing my lawn was not an experience until I
said to myself, "Goddam, that hurt!?"

I think I may become a decondeconstructionist.  My philosophy will be
that even worded events are not experience--unless the words used to
name them are High Poetry.  That way we can not only shut animals out of
experiencing things but stupid people, too.  (Funny, I keep thinking of
the way the Church defined souls a few hundred years ago--and possibly,
to an extent, the way they do now, for all I know.)

for deconstruction? ... [The Sonnets] seem to have been cunningly
constructed, Shakespeare's prophetic soul dreaming on things to come,
with the idea of deconstruction in mind.

Fineman, J. Shakespeare's Perjured Eye: The Invention of Poetic
Subjectivity in the Sonnets. Berkeley: U of California P. 1986. 46:

...what Derrida calls "writing," the thematics of the deconstructive
"trace" that Derrida associates with
