Removing blocks

(posted by Edward Berge) excerpts from the Integral World essay:
For Derrida, the difference between any oppositional pair derives from différance and he uses this new term to suggest a new way of understanding not only the relationship between opposites but also the ground of being from which oppositional tensions spring.
The “trace” is that which both marks and erases itself in the same stroke.
Derrida finds the trace structure as not only applicable to understanding language but also consciousness and every form of being and presence.
The ultimate purpose of the via negativa of neti, neti resides in removing blocks in the path toward attainment of the “pure consciousness” of Atman-Brahman, also called the Witness.
