From The Unconstructable Earth: An Ecology of Separation, forthcoming from Fordham University Press. The unconstructable has always been connected to the real nature of the earth throughout its transformation. The unconstructable is not an event that took place just once, at the origin of the world and of things; it has been present throughout the entire history of the earth, connecting its past with its most distant future: the transcendental dark side or counter-lining is the other side of the concrete history of the earth.
