When our clear perceptions are reformed, they still trace a fold which now separates the consciousness and the unconscious, which connects the small pieces of surface into a large surface, which moderates the speeds, and rejects all kinds of small perceptions to do with others the solid fabric of perception: the dust falls, and I see the great fold of the figures as the background undoes its little folds.
