Her program resonates with the work of a few others who want to find in narrated time the incisions of otherness within. In fact the gapmetaphor inhabited by narrowing gods might be better suited with another metaphor: the black hole curving spacetime with a potency defying measurements. e. presence that “normal” science and also “normal” theology cannot re-present. ” “In doing so he [Schweitzer] seems to me not to notice that when these two expressions are brought together there would be an inconsistence if one did not pay regard to the peculiar irrationality which essentially inheres in a genuine eschatology” (Otto 1943).

The cost of dissent, of presenting a different or rearranged representation, grows proportionally, because a new representation will have to muster new allies in a corresponding cascade of new simplified versions of facts. Hence, optical consistency increases in inverse proportion to the narrative openness of an inscription, not because there are hard and soft objects that condition the nature of the representation, but because the inscription becomes “harder” the more allies it musters. This could be taken to be a circular argument if it is forgotten that consensus grows precisely because and when the inscription moves away from open systems of communication and praxis to artificial and symbolic language, that is, from hermeneutics to representation.
