The user of this code should not be inhibited by any of the proclaimed
collapses of consistent and practical thinking.
The user of this code has just reached a dangerous passage. One cannot
pass but only slip through. At a moment which the user of this code will
not even notice. After decoding, nothing will remain in its place, and he
who wants to return will need to be aware that familiar environments
have been absorbed by the change.
The user of this code agrees with the paradoxes served up to him by the
maker of the code. The maker of the code does not understand why he
should blindly apply this or that convention without knowing who began
its construction, when and with what intention. The maker of the code
does not understand why he was left out of the process of making this
or that convention and why he is required to adopt this convention.
The clamour of excluding tradition carries across the deserted fields
of intellect. Only one tradition can be adopted in an authentic way: the
subjective (private) one, arranged by the maker, user and interpreter of
the personal code.
The maker of the code does not understand the well-established
habits of trained monkeys. For the time being, he delights only in the
melancholic gestures of coroners. The epileptic syntax finally begins to
The user of the code will not penetrate completely into the secrets of
the code he is just getting used to; he will stay on the surface, content
with tritely concrete decorations — the carnival whirl suffices as
a filling of duration.
The user of a different code identifies something else in this
fortification. Strangely arranged graphic characters: commas, full stops,
little perpendiculars, wavy lines, oval forms... In the area where the
concept of the mind is presumably to be found, surprising analogies are
He will start to take any letter for a sign, an aestheticising stylisation of
acoustic discourse, lasting in our conception (and convention) of time.
Obviously, from the sum of analogies a code will come into being that
does not have anything in common with language or literature. And
likewise not with the adornments of this fortification.
Let the user of (almost whatever) code find his appropriate passage if
he actually knows what is meant by that. And let the coroner go back to
the examination of deceased trained monkeys.
