The structure is not present. The structure: between the function and the variant. The structure of memory, the structure of experience. But to say “structure of memory”, “structure of experience” is a redundancy, because memory is experience and structure. The structure in which the zero is functioning, the structure in which the one is functioning, the structure in which the Other is functioning. The structure is not present, history is not present, the enterprise is not present: the structure is distinct from the theorem of the unrepresentable.
But where? What is the “where”? Where are things going? Where do they come from? Where do they write themselves? “Where” is not a place: ubi is not a place. Hic is not a place. Hic et nunc prevents the representation of the structure and of time.
Again, alibi. Again it is “where”, alibi. Alibi, other where, elsewhere. Where: ubi. Therefore, Other: beyond. Elsewhere, elsewhere of the structure. The structure is without a place. The “where” of the structure is “where do things come from and where do they go?”. The condition of the structure is the simulacrum. And this “beyond” indicates the non-place, the atopy of the structure. The path and the edge: this is the labyrinth. Edge of memory, path of memory. The memory that betrays (the treason of memory) and the memory that is transmitted (tradition), memory as teaching and memory as formation. Memory as labyrinth.
