Why is there this thing, sight, rather than sight blended with hearing? And woult id make any sense to discuss such a blend? In what sense? Why this sight, which doesn't see infrared? This hearing, which doesn't hear ultrasound? Why should every sense have a treshold, and why are senses walled off from each other? Further still: aren't senses separate universes? Or else the dislocation for every possible universe? What's the disjunction of the senses? And why five fingers? Why that beauty spot? Why this fold at the corner of the lips? That crease, there? That appearance, this gait, that restraint, this excess? Why this body, this world, absolutely and exclusively this one?
