How to begin philosophy, how to begin the process of philosophizing, an activity, a form of labor, the philosopher and the production. Whether the philosophy is cast asunder, whether it is interpretable, that is, translatable; whether it remains intrinsic to the act of philosophizing, therefore bound. If bound, whether it is of the substance or thing or continuity of its creation, or whether it is of some other substance, some other, cast asunder; whether the production is one with its production; whether the producer is one with the production. Here beginning without return, without recourse to the return, beginning in the sense of an act of writing designating this particular production which is named 'Philosophy.'
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. It is evident that undoing is not that of doing, that one alters, that things have altered, that things have altered within one within the world; that one is altered within an altered or altering world. That the world is what is evident, that the world is without recourse, without return. That the world is therefore unbounded, bounded without the boundary or delineation of the return; that the present is this unbounded, continuous unbinding. The present is a filter. The return is nowhere, returns nowhere.
Of such, without foundation; the present has no foundation; neither within nor without, neither within the apparatus of writing nor without. Mathematics possesses no return; every mathematical statement is foundation; every mathematical statement exists and presences. Of mathematics and its production is identical; is unique; is inescapably equivalent. Identity and equivalence remain within product and production; are remnant within product and production. Mathematics is that within which identity appears and appears exactly within equivalence. The world is that which is without identity, with the appearance of identity, without equivalence, with the appearance of equivalence. The splitting of the world is the splitting of perception into classes of apparent identity and apparent equivalence whose boundaries remain within the present, are imminent; but whose boundaries are such as projections. The projection of a boundary is within the present. The history of a boundary is a projection.
