“The race between the transtextual and the transvisual ran on until the emergence of the instantaneous ubiquity of the audiovisual mix. Simultaneously tele-diction and television, this ultimate transfer finally undermines the age-old problematic of the site where mental images are formed as well as that of the consolidation of natural
memory. 
‘The boundaries between things are disappearing, the subject and the world are no longer separate, time seems to stand still’, wrote the physicist Ernst Mach, known particularly for having established the role of the speed of sound in aerodynamics. In fact the tele topological phenomenon remains heavily marked by its remote beginnings in war, and does not bring the subject closer to the world. … In the manner of the combatant of antiquity, it anticipates human movement, outstripping every displacement of the body and abolishing space.”
