COSMICOMICS: The Other Eurydice

“Even now hardly anyone still remembers what we meant by making the Earth live: not what you imagine, content with your dustcloud life set down on the border between water, earth and air. I wanted life to expand outwards from the centre of the Earth, to spread upwards through its concentric spheres, to circulate around its metals, liquid and solid. Such was Pluto’s dream. It was the only way the Earth might have become an enormous living organism, the only way we could have avoided that condition of precarious exile to which life has been forcibly reduced, the dull weight of an inanimate ball of stone beneath, and above, the void.”

COSMICOMICS: World Memory

“If there is nothing that needs correcting in the world memory, the only thing left to do is correct reality where it doesn’t agree with that memory. Just as I cancelled the existence of my wife’s lover from the punch cards, so I must cancel him from the world of the living. Which is why I am now pulling out my gun and pointing it at you, Müller, why I’m squeezing the trigger, killing you.”

COSMICOMICS: As Long as the Sun Lasts

“I seem to see him, alone in the void, as he travels through the expanse of light-years, but still quarreling with his wife. That ‘I told you so’ and ‘brilliant discovery’ that accompanied the birth of stars, the movement of galaxies, the cooling of planets, that ‘you’ll be happy now’ and ‘that’s all you ever say’ that marked every episode and phase and explosion of their quarrels and of heavenly cataclysms, that ‘you always think you’re right’ and ‘it’s because you never listen to me’ without which the history of the universe would not have for him any name or memory or flavour, that eternal conjugal bickering: if ever it should one day come to an end, what a feeling of desolation, what emptiness!”

COSMICOMICS: The Daughters of the Moon

“I say a moon, even though it did not resemble a moon any more than the one we had seen plunge into the depths a few moments before: however, this new moon had a very different way of being different. It emerged from the sea dripping a trail of green, glistening seaweed; spouts of water gushed in fountains from fields that lent it the sheen of an emerald. A steamy jungle covered it, but not with plants. This covering seemed to be made of peacock feathers, full of eyes and shimmering colors.”

COSMICOMICS: The Night Driver

“I climbed into the car suddenly, after a quarrel over the telephone with Y. I live in A, Y lives in B. I wasn’t planning to visit her this evening. But during our daily phone call we said dire things to each other; in the end, carried away by my exasperation, I told Y that I wanted to break off our affair; Y answered that it didn’t matter to her and that she would immediately telephone Z, my rival.”

COSMICOMICS: Priscilla III: Death

“The circuit of vital information that runs from the nucleic acids to writing is prolonged in the punched tapes of the automata, children of other automata: generations of machines, perhaps better than we, will go on living and speaking lives and words that were also ours; and translated into electronic instructions, the word “I” and the word “Priscilla” will meet again.”

COSMICOMICS: Blood, Sea

“Because from the moment when blood becomes ‘our blood,’ the relationship between us and blood changes, that is, what counts is the blood insofar as it is ‘ours,’ and all the rest, us included, counts less.”

COSMICOMICS: The Soft Moon

“According to this theory, the Moon originally was a planet gravitating around the Sun, until the moment when the nearness of the Earth caused it to be derailed from its orbit. Captured by terrestrial gravity, the Moon moved closer and closer, contracting its orbit around us. At a certain moment the reciprocal attraction began to alter the surface of the two celestial bodies, raising very high waves from which fragments were detached and sent spinning in space, between Earth and Moon, especially fragments of lunar matter which finally fell upon Earth. Later, through the influence of our tides, the Moon was impelled to move away again, until it reached its present orbit. But a part of the lunar mass, perhaps half of it, had remained on Earth, forming the continents.”
