The baby pays no heed to the world that came before. (Our own measureless passion for the past almost killed us on several occasions.) But we can’t just drop our caring for and tending to our origins from one day to the next: doesn’t the shape of our baby’s head resemble that of a grandparent? That is one of the baby’s favorite ways of pulling our leg: by having us seek and find similarities (our faith in blood-kinship is unwavering; we find it confirmed on all sides). What we call similarity is our prayer to posterity. But this is one prayer the baby will not answer. If we did not know better, we should have to say: the baby denies any kinship with us altogether.
