An amendment to the three narratives story

I made a first amendment to what I presented last Monday about the three concomitant narratives concerning the other. Instead of three narratives, I'm thinking in terms of two poles where representation lies in the borderline. The composer that performs a representation of the world is a composition and a fragment; the monadological narrative deals in compositions or fragments and brings about (instaure) fragmented compositions that can be interrupted. Composing enables interruption - it emerges from a tension between compositions and fragments. Compositions are fragments because they are incomplete and therefore make room for further composing. Composing is perceiving, the ethical endeavor of attending to one's agenda and being interrupted by it. Perception is therefore dual, it aims at building a nexus and it attends to interruptions.

Hence, perception is the meeting point between monadology and what it inscribes, a hauntology. Monadology features the agency of each unit - autonomy - and the heteronomy that follows from being affected by the other monads' agency. Hauntology requires an interruption (heteronomy) and an autonomous decision afterwards. Monadology features spontaneity and contingency whereas hauntology features interruption and decision. Perception (and representation) happens between the two, it is a double articulation geared towards justice and placed within interiorities.
