Wildness challenges the unity of the symbol, the transcendent totalization binding the image to that which it represents. Wildness pries open this unity and in its place creates slippage. ... Wildness is the death space of signification.
— Michael Taussig
What point is there in trying to explain all of this to you, or trying to make you understand it all? If you yourself have not felt it by personal experience, You will be unable to know it.
— St. Simeon the New Theologian
