"Of such, without recourse to the return, because of evidence: one cannot return, or rather a return would be always and only from the present to the present, operable upon a remnant of the production, but only the remnant, which would be drawn into presence, or re-presence.'' The return is inconceivable, a conceiving; the return: from heroic travel; from death to birth; from wound to heal; from anomaly to suture; from digital to analog; from (mythology of the) death drive to (mythology of the) death drive; from arousal to satiation. The return is as-if, fiction. The return loops; there is never a return; the return re-presents the world; all re-presentation of the world is the appearance of return. To return is to re-possess; possessions are repossessions. The loop of the return is the process of reification; it transforms the appearance of inherent value into exchange; within mathesis, it is capital. Capital is seeing the world; it is eternal presence. Eternal return is always eternal presence; it is the presence of as-if-I-had-known within the I-know; return is the foundation of culture.
Return is the foundation of culture; desire is the foundation of culture; language is the foundation of culture; sexuality is the foundation of culture; product-production is the foundation of culture; disturbance is the foundation of culture; differentiation is the foundation of culture; negation is the foundation of culture; there is no foundation of culture as such; there is no cultural foundation. (If the world were not a stew, philosophy would be axiomatic; if philosophy were axiomatic, there would be no philosophy. The exhaustion of the absolute is the absolute of exhaustion.)
