Adorno 2001: 135) The recognition that “existence might not be everything” remains grave rather than comic unless it expresses “giddy intoxication” in its view of how its superiority, assumed and maintained all along as if existence is truly “everything” and tinged with the vulgarity of such absorption, is now put to rest in performing, that is, is relaxed only as it is expressed in the action that performs at existence as if it is everything, while showing in this very 37 Spectacular Death: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Mortality and (Un)representability performance its awareness of existence not being everything, thus disavowing what it does and playing at what it disavows in a gesture that can only laugh sadly and brood with gaiety, the gesture that the Irish wake always tries to ritualize.
So the idea that living is dying is a monumental abstraction: dying, as experienced, is something only and exclusively happening to me, myself and I, even while it is a happening for all. It is as if inhabiting the contradiction is suffering an affect, being without justification. If the experience of a contradiction typically must be normalized, reconciled, justified (take the case of someone doing what they know is wrong), then accepting the condition without alibi (as Derrida  says), that is, without trying to deny, excuse or explain it, simply accepts it as a pathos to suffer (as if an affliction that entraps one).
Death, then, helps us recognize healing as analogous to what Socrates called the second sailing: the best the sailors at sea in a storm can do when they realize they have to rely on their own human resources rather than external or magical intervention (Bernadette 1989). In the absence of cure, we turn to healing, for it is the human way, second best. This might mean that we have death and something more: the capacity for healing, the capacity to laugh (or better, to be artful). Descartes proposes that mediation (and so, meditation) is essential to life, making the absence of mediation inconceivable to us since we would have to meditate on that (see the possibility of impossibility in Heidegger 1962), facing its incommensurability or difference that makes it only external and nothing more, formal in that sense, with no inner life.
