Being Nothing






i


I am ashamed
I am passive
I am prepared
I am looking
I am afraid
I am aware
I am conscious
I am free
I am writing
I am unjustifiable
I am engaged
I am going
I am I
I am hiding
I am it
I am sad
I am sincere
I am courageous
I am angry
I am there
I am thrown
I am speaking
I am united
I am present
I am this
I am obliged
I am myself
I am thinking
I am instrumentality
I am separated
I am perpetually
I am concerned
I am responsible
I am aiming
I am still
I am seeking
I am vulnerable
I am alone
I am ignorant
I am inaccessible
I am mistaken
I am bent
I am situated
I am detached
I am ashamed
I am engaged
I am inspired
I am acting
I am reading
I am possessed
I am made
I am all
I am fleeing
I am language
I am guided
I am loved
I am guilty
I am led
I am reassured
I am seen
I am calling
I am missing
I am making
I am brought
I am surprised
I am organized
I am fighting
I am walking
I am aimed
I am translating
I am condemned
I am threatened
I am otherwise
I am climbing
I am ugly
I am apprehending
I am well
I am inferior
I am hungry
I am expected
I am short
I am absolutely
I am faithful
I am dispossessed
I am simplifying
I am now
I am waiting
I am able
I am here
I am immortal
I am temporalizing
I am nothing
I am shifting
I am mobilized
I am rowing
I am creator
I am passing
I am doing
I am compromised
I am changing
I am swimming
I am enriched
I am he
I am nevertheless








ii



I am not the origin
I am not the self
I am not that self
I am not subject 
I am not engaged
I am not the id
I am not what I am
I am not what I have been
I am not he
I am not here
I am not sad
I am not a paederast
I am not this coward
I am not it
I am not anymore
I am not this contingent being
I am not in fact
I am not my past
I am not what I pronounced
I am not happy
I am not a diplomat
I am not obeying
I am not anyone
I am not engaged
I am not rich
I am not what I am
I am not yet this negation
I am not present
I am not prevented
I am not this
I am not opposed
I am not master
I am not what is outlined
I am not yet looking
I am not this nothingness
I am not going
I am not responsible
I am not the foundation
I am not my body
I am not this contingency 
I am not conscious
I am not disgusted
I am not embarrassed
I am not able
I am not free
I am not a professor
I am not of their country
I am not easy to please 
I am not distinct
I am not the foundation
I am not able not to choose
I am not actually thinking
I am not even speaking
