And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
William Butler Yeats
Bethlehem is in Palestine. The BEAST is there.
Is Israel the BEAST being born?
When 666 is tripled then 1998 is the result when Bolano is working against death to finish 2666.
They cannot kill him for this expose because he will be/is dead.
|THE BOOK FOR WOMEN TO KNOW WELL|
WORK OF A "HIDDEN CENTER," CONCEALED BENEATH WHAT MIGHT BE
CONSIDERED THE NOVEL'S "PHYSICAL CENTER." THERE IS REASON TO THINK THAT
THIS PHYSICAL CENTER IS THE CITY OF SANTA TERESA, FAITHFUL REFLECTION OF
CUIDAD JUAREZ, ON THE MEXICAN-US BORDER. THERE THE FIVE PARTS OF THE
NOVEL ULTIMATELY CONVERGE; THERE THE CRIMES ARE COMMITTED THAT
COMPRISE ITS SPECTACULAR BACKDROP (AND THAT ARE SAID BY ONE OF THE
NOVEL'S CHARACTERS TO CONTAIN "THE SECRET OF THE WORLD"
T.S. Eliot in Sweeney Agonistes:
Any man has to, needs to, wants to
Once in a lifetime, do a girl in.
The Secret of the World The Crimes are telling us?
What is that SECRET?
The SECRET is the PRIME SECRET of Our World.
Forget about the rest of the baggage.
That is what Irigaray is telling us and Bolano is graphically illustrating for us in fiction.
The mirroring? Is the mirror convex? Maybe it is concave? Maybe two mirrors facing each other where you are not in either one of them when you stand between them?
Plato's Cave is coming UNDONE!
The SECRET of 2666 is revealed by Irigaray
Irigaray's convoluted deconstruction of Freud and Plato is told in fiction by Bolano. Now we can't complain that we don't understand because Irigaray is too difficult for us to read.
Bolano makes her crystal clear.
There the five parts of the novel ultimately converge; there the crimes are committed that comprise its spectacular backdrop (and that are said by one of the novel's characters to contain "the secret of the world"). As for the "hidden center"...might it not represent 2666 itself, the date upon which the whole novel rests? (p.896)
No the hidden center is not the number 2666 in my reading of 2666.
