Structuralism and Deconstruction

Sorry, this post isn’t about cars or the NBA. What else could I possibly have to write about?

Structuralism and Deconstruction

It’s something that the second I try to understand the meaning, I am lost but because I am lost I am able to understand. For you can not deconstruct something without using it during deconstruction. To tear apart is to understand. And to understand is to admit to it’s existence. Is it? For freeplay can only exist within a structure, which in turn is in itself organized but because of such grounding and organization, freeplay is limited. Substitutions are limited. But in a finite field, the substitutions are limitless. The act of freeplay itself is deconstruction, but what more is deconstruction that the act of creative reading. But nothing is original. Everything is structured. The center is a center but also the non-center. It exists within the structure but it is not limited to the structure for there can be a center outside of the structure. Then what is the center? Where are the limits and bounds to the center? Are there any? What is the sign? What does it signify? But the signifier and the signified are not the same. There is a loss of meaning between the two. What is the true interpretation of interpretation if there is any?

Maybe I just don’t understand at all. Or maybe my deconstruction of it, means that I do understand it.
