Rollin' on the River

If there is no sure way up and no fixed way down, the top of the hill is not so well located. If we are, on the move, with contrary currents, without a view from the top to discern the borders, then there is no firm boundary to respect. In the text or in the discipline.

But what then is this very declaration if not a view from the top? No way avoids language's power of self-reference; no real hyper-text escapes totalizing. But we and our discourses are not captured in any single text. Why should we be?
