Hearing Lerner

“Where a word repeated starts to lose sense and become mere sound… That’s a moment that’s both terrifying because it makes you aware of the fragility of socially constructed meaning, and really enabling and inspiring. It reminds us the world is a fiction made out of vibrating columns of air.”

This is one of the best things that I have heard. Ben Lerner’s ideas are lucid; I find them very fascinating.
