further notes towards a Complex Textual Legitimacy Proclamation
In the context of this book, we are profoundly aware how much has been left out.
The list of topics that we might reasonably have considered in this book is endless.
Its meaning cannot be contained and yet it is not possible to reconstitute the story in any way one wishes, primarily because each new proclamation or enactment of the narrative bears relation to the preceeding part of the story, which has already been written.
Everywhere we see the beginnings of confusion and we want a clue to some sound order and authority.
