Do I have a part that sees the world as evil?
I want to spawn a Heteronym to write a future post here. Or rather I see this heteronym in my mind already and I'm curious about letting him speak.
Timothy Morton wrote about the idea that evil is the gaze that views the world as evil while standing aside from it as a pure and innocent soul.
My heteronym is evil in that sense. He would write something like this:
It is an error to say that there is Evil in the world. Rather, the world is evil from the beginning and evil sustains it. There's so much evil in the very foundation of the world that identifying a specific evil is almost a kind of propaganda that conceals evil's enormity. Energy, industry, technology, numbers and alphabets, birth and death, love, perception, agency: everything is suffused with evil. Our ability to carry out our daily lives without being overwhelmed by evil is itself, of course, evil.
He is also a bit pretentious, but who isn't?
I don't know his name yet.
