“It’s not that what is past casts its light on what is present, or what is present its light on what is past; rather, image is that wherein what has been comes together in a flash with the now to form a constellation. In other words, image is dialectics at a standstill. For while the relation of the present to the past is a purely temporal, continuous one, the relation of what-has-been to the now is dialectical: is not progression but image, suddenly emergent.”

Funny i should find this. Also, the comic book is part of my syllabus. :) Joy!

Every passion borders on the chaotic, but the collector’s passion borders on the chaos of memories.
