instructions for disappearing

“The only way to atone for the sin of writing is to annihilate what is written. But the author can only do that; destruction leaves that which is essential intact. I can, however, tie negation so closely to affirmation that my pen gradually effaces what it has written. In doing so it accomplishes, in a word, what is generally accomplished by ‘time’ — which, from among its multifarious edifices, allows only the traces of death to subsist. I believe that the secret of literature is there, and a book is not a thing of beauty unless it is skillfully adorned with the indifference of ruins.” (Georges Bataille, Abbe C)

Jobe is resuscitated by Jonathan Walker. He wants Jobe to create a special computer chip that would connect all the computers in the world into one network, which Walker would control and use. But what Walker doesn’t realize is a group of teenage hackers are on to him and out to stop his plan.

            The nothing [the void] names that undecidable of presentation which is its 
unpresentable, distributed between the pure inertia of the domain of the multiple, and 
the pure transparency of the operation thanks to which there is oneness [d’où procède 
qu’il y ait de l’un]. The nothing is as much that of structure, thus of consistency, as 
that of the pure multiple, thus of inconsistency. (BE 55; emphasis added)
