Memory Ruins

"Forgetting is the primordial divinity, the venerable ancestor and the first presence of what, in a later generation, will give rise to Mnemosyne, mother of the Muses. The essence of memory is therefore forgetting: the forgetfulness of which one must drink in order to die."
Blanchot (Forgetful Memory, IC 315)
