ext: writing extinction
Imagine thinking about extinction, starting from ext and extending, textually and extra-textually, and coming back to the raw, more-or-other-than-death thought, perhaps unthinkable, of extinction.
ext would suggest the perhaps for now truncated name of something needing thinking, a thought without a thinker, that would be more than a thought—extinction, textuality, extravagant thinking of the effects of a vanishing without trace, that we can’t face.

CITY & (DIS)ORDER
(Re)Mapping the Metropolis ; (De)Coding Urban (dis)order
in the Discourses of Culture

There is a famous parable that goes something like this: When six blind people came across an elephant, they were curious to know more about it. Since they would not be able to see it, they decided to touch and feel it anyway. "Hey, the elephant feels like a tree trunk” said the person who touched his leg. "Oh, no! it is like a rope," said the second one who touched the tail. "Oh, no! it is like a thick branch of a tree," said the one who touched the trunk of the elephant. "It is like a big hand fan" said the fourth person who touched the ear of the elephant. "It is like a huge wall," said the fifth person who touched the belly of the elephant. "It is like a solid pipe," said the sixth person who touched the tusk of the elephant.
