par·a·site \ˈper-ə-ˌsīt, ˈpa-rə-\
1 : There are two kinds of parasitism. The first, more direct, though very wily and devious; the second, more mediate, thematises the relation, complicates it, raises it to relations of relations. As if the para parasite were being invented, as if the difference were differed, as if the distance were distanced. A first ruse, a ruse of the ruse, ad infinitum.
