We do not adequately think about the real rift that cinema brings to history, the one we are used to thinking of as the history of humanity or the world, cinema is the first moment in which the world sees itself. Then we know that it is fake, that it’s a trick, that they are single frames, but while photography is a frozen instant, with cinema we can once again see a horse, the world can see itself and this in itself is a realization that one does not think of… It is a small system, mechanical, banal, simple, corruptible, but sufficient to produce a self viewing of world that is in itself immediately Nietzschean, circular.¹
