Gaping of the questioning

We are still unaware of many things in the universe, and even more in man. We know only from the bottom of mystery. And questions arise ad infinitum. Why, basically, is man to be respected? What, primarily, founds the “human rights”? And what about if man were only an animal among animals in the nature, even the most beautiful one? And what about if he were only the result of a structural combination of matter? And what about if he were only the increasing complexity of a structure become conscious of itself? And if…? And if…?

We know only from the bottom of mystery. Like a ship on the immense ocean of the questions… Where far is our epistemological possibility going? Is the universe a system or a scattered plurality? Is the possibility of our knowledge of the universe total or simply regional? Is the universe understandable in a homogeneous or in a heterogeneous way? What is really matter? What is energy? What is space and time? Is time absolutely irreversible? What is necessity? What is chance? Is there only one cosmos or a plurality of worlds? If there is plurality, is it basically complementary or antagonistic? Do anti-universes exist? Are the interactions which we know and which we manage to unify the only interactions? Are the principles of today’s scientific intelligibility absolute or transitory? Is our intellectual space homogeneous? Which is the probability of new epistemological revolutions? Is there only one order of intelligibility or a plurality of orders? Etc, etc.

And, very ultimately, springs up the question of the reason of our reason. Behind its self-clamed sovereignty is the reason really the absolute base of our possible certainty? Is it the ultimate including power of our totalizing? And what about if the reason were itself included by something else? Such terrible questions open in direction of gaping. In the direction of the absolute Gaping…

What the science does not lodge and what, on the contrary, lodges science. First, science itself. The conditions of possibility of science are beyond the science. Why is something as a science possible? The most incomprehensible, notes Einstein, is that science is possible.

Secondly, the reason. Science is never but the reason made up at a given time. What founds this made up reason is the constituent reason, i.e. the absolute requirement itself of non-contradiction, of totality and of coherence.

Thirdly, the act of being i.e. the irreducible factitiousness of being… Science necessarily begins from a `there is' that it does not create. But how can you explain and understand that ‘there is’ something rather than nothing as Leibniz wonders.

Fourthly, the rationality of the reality. Every thing is not possible. All things are not possible together, anywhere, at any time, nor anyhow. The universe is governed by laws and without these laws science would be impossible. This `pressure' determines an order of being and successions. Beings and phenomena are determined. Even `chance' is determined, if you consider that there is not only the space of the (random) play, there are not only the rules of the game but basically the rules which govern the possibility of the game itself! Without the belief in the internal harmony of our world, according to the word of Einstein, science could not be possible.

Science can remain unconscious of its gaping. Inside its space an answer can be valid, independently of gaping which open behind its objects, its methods and the logic of its statements. One can be erudite without metaphysical anguish about his scientific discipline. Science can continue to function even when a crisis affects its bases. These gaping is however infinitely relevant since it wakes up the spirit from its dogmatic sleep.

You have to go further… Our approach on the gaping dimension thus calls into question the enclosure of the human condition as celebrated by the `sciences' known as `human'. Specially what they repress with such a constant insistence, namely the `other’ one which makes irruption in the history by the Judeo-Christian revolution. Negative anthropology is not afraid of revealing the mechanism of repressed repression. Had it for that to operate a psychoanalysis of the psychoanalysis itself. The mechanisms of psychoanalysis, its operation and its impact in modernity is perfectly significant of this enclosure. To have enclosed the unconscious in the cave while giving to think to men that their depths and their gaping are not going beyond their finitude, such seems to be the relevance of this in gnosticism reversed soteriology. 

Doesn't the total human experiment remain radically and irreducible open on another dimension that only the strict scientific articulation? Another dimension…
