This chapter discusses non-equivalence. The present is defined in a contrived manner. The present is accordingly not the immediate but that from which humanity starts to work from, and escape from the past. The present here means the present of an arrival or an approach. It is also the present that opens to the singular and shies away from the general equivalence and all its evaluations and musings of the past and its reflections toward the future. Fukushima, therefore, should open new paths, whether it is inside or outside the human culture that is drowning itself. It should lead to equivalence. The equivalence is not the equality honored by the French Republic as liberty and fraternity, nor is it democracy because it starts only from the equality of incommensurables of society and individuals. In finality, by rejecting catastrophic equivalence, a common state for all humans beyond the reach of artificially contrived formalities would be achieved. This is known as the communism of nonequivalence.
