Boredom contra Rage, Ninth Aphorism

Rage accepts death as a possible destination–but death is never the goal. “The significance of death is never in question.” In the Acting or in the Doing, there is no meaning; post facto, there is no retribution–though there is still some notion of an “eternity” in which one is damned or saved. The body of Rage may be punished, its accomplishment may be attributed significance, but the Actor and Doer do not Act or Do for posterity. That job is reserved for the journalist who does nothing but spin Acts and twist Deeds into the triviality of news.
