Joseph Madrigal

The structure of the daily, as well as of the ‘philosophical’, language, which we inherited, in the main, from our primitive ancestors, is such that we have separate terms for factors that are not separable, such as ‘matter’, ‘space’, ‘time’ or ‘body’, ‘soul’, ‘mind’. Then, as it were, we try to make out of the word, flesh, by reversing the natural order and affectively ascribing a delusional objectivity to these terms.
