Doubt works deep within you like a disease or, eveneffectively, like a faith I am incapable of tiring of Cioran His pessimism is so freaking lyrical, his aphorisms so exquisitely timbered, his arpeggiated paragraphs and chorded essays so harmonic in their opaline darkness, their existential deliquescence, their inertial braggadocio, that I m reduced to fanboy relish every time Our only choice is between irrespirable truths and salutary frauds.Like tragedy, history resolves nothing, Doubt works deep within you like a disease or, eveneffectively, like a faith I am incapable of tiring of Cioran His pessimism is so freaking lyrical, his aphorisms so exquisitely timbered, his arpeggiated paragraphs and chorded essays so harmonic in their opaline darkness, their existential deliquescence, their inertial braggadocio, that I m reduced to fanboy relish every time Our only choice is between irrespirable truths and salutary frauds.Like tragedy, history resolves nothing, because there is nothing to resolve It is always by failure that we study the future Too bad we cannot breathe as if events, in their totality, were suspended Each time they evidence themselves a little too much, we suffer a fit of determinism, of fatalistic rage By free will we explain only the surface of history, the appearances it assumes, its external vicissitudes, but not its depths, its real course, which preserves, in spite of everything, a baffling, even a mysterious character We are still amazed that Hannibal, after Cannae, did not fall upon Rome Had he done so, we should be boasting today of our Carthaginian ancestry To maintain that whim, that accident, hence the individual, play no part, is folly Yet each time we envisage the future as a totality, the verdict of the Mahahharata invariably comes to mind The knot of Destiny cannot be untied nothing in this world is the result of our actions History in slow motion has inexorably been replaced by history out of breath Institutions, societies, civilizations differ in duration and significance, yet all are subject to one and the same law, which decrees that the invincible impulse, the factor of their rise, must sag and settle after a certain time, this decadence corresponding to a slackening of that energizer which isdelirium Compared with periods of expansion, of dementia really, those of decline seem sane and are so, are too much so which makes them almost as deadly as the others.Historical time is so tense, so strained, that it is hard to see how it can keep from exploding At each of its moments it gives the impression that it is on the point of breaking.Nothing makes us modest, not even the sight of a corpse.I have always been attracted by lost causes, by individuals without a hope of success, whose follies I have espoused until I suffer from them almost as much as they do.I do not struggle against the world, I struggle against a greater force, against my weariness of the world.I try to oppose the interest I take in her, I imagine her eyes, her cheeks, her nose, her lips in a high state of putrefaction No help for it the indefinable element she releases persists It is in such moments that one understands why life has managed to sustain itself, in spite of Knowledge Et cetera, inter alia, e pluribus unumDoes he tend to wend the same groove Is his bile, at sixty, a touch less deliriously effervescent, a shaderisible, than when he was a Romanian stripling yearning for the void from Transylvanian thickets Does such as his mistaken belief that the Communist world would outlast an enervated West lay bare the veils and glamours through which his raking eye was self deceived Sure But with his gorgeous tongue, I say let the man have his blasphemous gall, let him inspiritingly rail, let him prune humanity s shrubs It s not like contentment or happiness is mandatory As if pessimism talks to you about what it is like, still it is so good and informative that you

possa seguire ad essa, l unico sbocco, l unica possibilit lecito chiedersi se l umanit quale essa non avrebbe interesse a cancellarsi adesso piuttosto che estenuarsi e afflosciarsi nell attesa, esponendosi ad un era di agonia in cui rischierebbe di perdere ogni ambizione, anche quella di sparire.Aggiungo due righe per riprendere coscienza e procedere serena obbligandomi a ricordare che, quando si parla di Cioran, per definire catastrofe e cancellazione si pu comodamente attingere alla mistica, anzi, si deve Il che rende pi che plausibile la riconciliazione tra atteggiamento antistorico e disposizione storica E mi risolve un fastidiosissimo senso di appagamento fisico a prescindere, qualsiasi pronunciamento accompagni le irruzioni del Solitario nei miei giorni.Continuo a
