Blanchot

‘If religion…is etymologically that which binds, that which holds together, then what of the non-bond which disjoins beyond unity – which escapes the synchrony of “holding together”, yet does so without breaking all relations or without ceasing, in this break or in this absence of relation, to open yet another relation? Must one be nonreligious for that?’

Maurice Blanchot, The Writing of the Disaster (1980)
