"Language must be paid for, in energy at the very least; it is never free. We will need to determine after this if it gives the given. Meanwhile, they're not exactly giving it away. And if you believe they are, you might as well believe in perpetual motion" (Michel Serres, The Five Senses: A Philosophy of Mingled Bodies, p.117).

sportsBabel, August 2009: "Print is, of course, an expression of the eye taken in linear sequences. But it is also a folding and capturing of the hand and its sensual laying of pen to paper, hammer to marble, remington typekey to carbon paper substrate, plastic keyboard to digital sensor to random access memory chip to immaterial hard drive memory sector. And though translation does not belong exclusively to the domain of print, we must bear in mind that even in the most seemingly disembodied form of communication as a written manuscript, the act of crossing a threshold through translation will bear to some degree this folding and capturing of the body. As such, it will also fold and capture time."

"Touch is topological and prepares the planes and smooth varieties for a relaxed, metric, Euclidean gaze, the skin covers with a veil what the eye cannot see. … Pure touch gives access to information, a soft correlate of what was once called the intellect" (Serres, p.83).
