"I was thinking the colour of Schopenhauer, of Dostoevsky … Old men nostalgic for the past potency of humanism. What is humanism? The masculine potency that is going to be lost in the extinction of things … I was wrong. Extinction won't come with the dark colours of Dostoevsky … My language is old! It's the old language of an old man who has not perceived the real reality of the real. I am trying to understand. I am trying to feel! I am trying to perceive a perception of the colour of extinction! … It will come in the colour of excitement! it is brilliant, exciting, glittering, stimulating! Extinction will come in the colour of brightness! It is like me! And it is like you." — Franco Bifo Berardi
