History and Obstinacy

“Intercourse with four billion years of evolution, two thousand years of historical time, the cumulative landscapes of industry, and the emotions of the entire body is both objective and definite. Cells know everything, all the way up to the stars. Either the head has never experienced anything of this sort, or it has forgotten it altogether” (p. 158).

See Commentary 3: “On the Concept of the Real” (pp. 156-61).
