We need to dissolve the notion of “neuter,” in favor of “uter” and “alter.” The first, not neither, but either; the second, not not one of two, but always shifting into the position of the other of two. “Uter,” the stance of pure indifference, and “alter,” the embrace of the uncertain.

Rather than positing that something beĀ outside the dyad, because we are philosophically weak, we can in fact work within it, work at it from the inside. Any power of a dyad depends on our mode of knowing. It works through us from the outside. We may therefore release ourselves from that power by transforming its usage, relocating our passage through it from circumscription to transposition.
