Passover dialectics

The double
opening of otherness was really possible only in and starting from the Judeo-Christian space where, absolutely single emergence, the 'other' has a logical and ontological priority on the 'same'. If dialectical reality has its source in the Bible, dialectical formalization
will only be done in the Western space born itself from the dialectical confrontation between the Greek component and the Judeo-Christian exponent.

Through the whole of the human experience, it is in the Bible and the Bible only that this 'out of' and this 'ahead' find their full relevance. Can a people venture far with their God without not being marked by him in the deepest of its being and of its culture?

The fourth dialectical moment is that of the infinite Exodus. The Exodus is the original experience in the Bible and the central light in its writings. Starting from Exodus, every preceding and following event takes sense. For the pagan ones, every thing is always at the beginning. After that it goes with emanations and degradations, and, on the best assumption, a possible return towards the origin. In the Bible, whose language, already, does not distinguish really between present and future, alpha is for omega and 'eschaton' is principle.


The human condition is not buckled up in the continuity with what is given naturally. The human condition is very deeply a 'passover' condition. Man becomes truly man only '
through'… Rupture. Exodus. Passing over. Man reaches plenitude while crossing painful spaces of difference and negativity.

Astonishing 'dialectics' already! Before even the term in its modern meaning could be integrated in the Western mental space, already its reality is there, vigorous, still free of any ideological prison. Not yet made up in way of thinking and explanation, but already constituent of an extraordinary dynamics of the being.

The non castrated dialectics is for transcendence. It passes over a world resisting to what is '
elsewhere'. It clashes with things which refuse to open to 'other' dimensions. It is a foolish and impetuous adventure 'out of'. Infinite Passover of man. Infinite Passover of the being. Who, today, can still understand it in the plenitude of its ontological dimensions, whereas for more than two centuries we have brought it back to the reason of our logics of finiteness, of our hermeneutics which turn round and of our schizoid fences? It was the key of the open infinite. We made it an easy verbal pass key for locks of shoddy goods.

Its originating major force is not first in the logical instrumentality of an explanatory process but in an irreducible historically tested and lived reality, founder of new humanity, the biblical Passover. The Bible is summarized in the
Exodus, this infinite movement 'out of'. Every thing else is in dependence of the Exodus. Even 'Creation'. If the concept of 'creation' is fundamental in biblical theology, that of 'history' is it not less. Both meet in a deep logical and ontological ratio. 'Creation', the first moment of history, opening the historical process on an indefinite succession of creative moments.

Exodus of all things
out of nothing. Irruption of the original Alpha which tends towards Omega, in the opening of a 'topos' of the future which is 'u-topos'. So that the true genesis is less at the beginning than at the end. A tension towards new creation. The 'eschaton' of a new earth and a new sky. The rise of the new Jerusalem, whose luminary will be neither sun nor moon but only the Son of man. And perhaps haven't we finished yet exploring the depths of the world in its infinite creative possibilities. A very deep bond between cosmos and logos. When 'matter' is more than 'matter' with its possibilities of infinite developments, that is to say of infinite exoduses of forms.

The ultimate
dialectical moment meant by 'trans' engages the human reality in an infinite Exodus. This Exodus is not for itself. Its dynamics is not buckled on itself. The human being is open on its 'other
' dimension. This otherness remains impossible to circumvent.

Before being a law of the spirit, 'dialectics' is initially, very deeply, a law of Alliance. It draws its relevance from the experience of the Passover mystery. Rupture. Exodus. Crossing towards the Promised land. Crucifixion. Death which bursts in Resurrection. The paradoxical truth that essence occurs in 'going through' and 'going beyond', not in 'in-sisting' on fullness but in 'ex-sisting' through gaping. That the truth of man is in 'going beyond' of man. That the truth of the human condition is in its rupture and its opening.

Is dialectics basically possible elsewhere than in the mode of grace? When negativity, any negativity, experiments that it is not absolute but that, through a mysterious gestation, it works with the bringing forth of an 'other' reality.


'Trans' says the opening of the human reality. It says at the same time that man does not have the last word on itself. Man is open beyond of himself. In this infinite opening freedom finds its infinity.
