Example text

A: So there is a concurrent activity. Not one of us making a statement, the other thinking about it and then saying, ‘Well, I agree, I don’t agree, I accept, I don’t accept, and these are the reasons I don’t accept, and these are the reasons I do’, but we are walking together. K: On the same road, with the same attention, with the same intensity, at the same time, otherwise there is no communication. A: Exactly. K: Communication implies that we are walking together, we are thinking together, we are observing together, sharing together at the same level, at the same time, with the same intensity.

A: I have the feeling, and I hope I have understood you correctly, that there is a relationship between the starkness of this necessity and the fact that there cannot be a gradual progress. But nevertheless there is some demonic progress that takes place within this disorder that is not so much a progress as a proliferation of the same. Necessarily so. Is that what you have been saying? K: Yes. You know I was told the other day that the word ‘progress’ meant entering into an enemy’s country fully armed.

Virtue is a creative thing, is a living thing, is a moving thing. A: If I am following you correctly, what you are really saying is that the ability to act in the strict sense must be creative, otherwise it’s not action but simply reaction. K: A repetition. A: A repetition. The ability to act, or virtue, as you put it, bears with it necessarily the implication of order. It must. It seems to me there’s no way out of that. K: Yes. So can I come back? In human relationship as it exists now there is conflict, sexual violence and so on and so on, every kind of violence.
