The specular image circumambulates its own axis, refracting attenuated shafts of consciousnesses. The projections of the consciousness then disperse into infinitesimal replicas of variations of singularity wherein the constituents are differentiated yet underscored by a commonality that collusively commingles concatenated variegations into a mosaic. The sea recalls the amniotic tang of the womb and its incessant ebb and flow, accompanied by the doctor's and langoustine's indefatigable reconfigurations of phenomena reduplicate and recur in an endless proliferation of meditations on ephemera, interspersed by kitsch, quotidian references so that the corporeal and the impalpable intersect. Yet this intersection is irresolvable because it does not cohere into a reconstituted configuration but disperses in acerbic, witty arabesques whose ineluctable singularity accentuates meaning of meaninglessness.

The doctor and langoustine, connoisseurs of the tall tale seamlessly peregrinate realms of alterity and materiality as they streak the daguerrotype of monochromatic involutions with polyvalent multifacetedness. Albeit tautologous their anti climactic inconclusive postulations create a capacious space for innumerable repertoire of contingently dispossessed ruminations that by virtue of their deracination reaffirm the ontological incertitude of the amniotic womb, the sea whose eldritch architectonics they navigate and re navigate to arrive at the indissoluble kernel which would contravene the laws of unknowability and supervene parthenogenetic irrefutability.

The meaning the doctor and langoustine seek emerges from a void. Their assertions arise out of nothingness. I am,therefore i exist constitutes much of their repartees and colloquies because only by acknowledging the indeterminacy of a beginning can they mold themselves into numerous forms. They create these forms out of phantoms, sheathing nebulous uncertainty in the integument of self reflexively, circumlocutory whorls of escapist traversings of mutability, seeking the impalpable yet undercutting the transcendence it betokens by re submergence into the quotidian. Their sybaritic cogitations recall flesh and its representation re- presentation within the concave specularity of the mirror. Langoustine embodies the id whose inchoate , primeval rejoinders counterpoint the superego doctor whose irreproachable deportment belies a crusty humor, scatological inter textuality and psychosis. Yet the superego and the id are not undifferentiated as they blend and become a subjectivity that in narcissistic self communion delights in its luminous perspicacity yet unwilling to accept that the image is its own is enmeshed in intrasubjectivity. Aside from the fact that doctor and langoustine are two sides of the same coin it is difficult to figure who is the self and who is the image. Embodying idealism and grotesquerie, thesis and antithesis the doctor and langoustine never coalesce the self to the image in the mirror. As such they dissonantly protrude or obtrude, weaving in and out of each others self consciousness, desirous of commingling yet due to a failure of self perception, being unable to. Both possess moments of clarity yet these moments are frittered away in bantering and interchanging trivialities. So while conscious of matter their souls are suspended in the bell jar of unanswerable metaphysical truisms whose indecipherability might have rendered indubitability tremulous yet whose indisputable unknowingness defines the core of existence. However buttressed by their dyadic intermingling the intermittencies proffered by the dialogue between them makes the journey enjoyable.
