Animated Nights

Made memories
Wild vitality
Slip away

Schelling explores succession in a way analogous to Bergson’s duration. The question is not whether and how the assemblage of phenomena and the series of causes and effects, which we call the course of nature, has become actual outside us. The question rather relates to how succession becomes manifest for us.

“It is impossible to distinguish between the duration, however short it may be, that separates two instants and a memory that connects them, because duration is essentially a continuation of what no longer exists into what does exist.” – Henri Bergson
