Example text

Ah, the wonder of it! To wonder how it is that the machine's vision is not secondary to my vision. An auto-tele-vision. It is the flickering up and the passing away of conscious contact. It is to be zapped in and out of a rush of images and sounds: A mother who only loves just enough - not quite the wire mommy of the rhesus monkey experiments of an earlier scientific research agenda - the cold machine. A mother's sensual singing accompanied by a red and white kitchen radio - the music machine. The fat of a childhood body that would be without organs, without a sex, all filled up, all closed in - the dumbing machine.

But in Archive Fever, where Derrida 28 Technical Substrates of Unconscious Memory 29 returns to "Freud and the Scene of Writing" in the context of interrogat­ ing the relationship of unconscious memory and teletechnology, what is suggested is that it is teletechnology that allowed for the connections Derrida first elaborated between his own project and Freud's. Or, as I would like to put it, in "Freud and the Scene of Writing" Derrida begins to complete Freud's project in the machine metaphors given with teletech­ nology and suggests, therefore, that teletechnology always already drew the Freudian unconscious to it and to the future.

Physis in differance. "30 Surely the thought of differance has ontological implications. The on­ tology of Being by which nature and culture are opposed is undermined; culture and nature instead are drawn back into the play of the differ­ ences of preontological forces -the singular, subindividual, finite, forces of mattering, which subtend and yet are immanent to the differantial relation of body and machine, nature and technology, the virtual and the real. But if there are ontological implications arising from the thought of differance, there is something that prevents Derrida from fully artic­ ulating them here, when first following Freud.
