Jaques Derrida | Plato's Pharmacy

"Logos, a living, animate creature, is thus also an organism that has been engendered. An organism: a different body proper, with a center and extremities, joints, a head, and feet. In order to be "proper", a written discourse ought to submit to the laws of life just as a living discourse does. Logographical necessity [...] ought to be analogous to the biological, or rather zoological, necessity [...] Otherwise obviously it would have neither head nor tail."

Cat Tangram

. . . a Chinese dissection puzzle consisting of seven pieces, 
called tans, which fit together to form a shape of some sort. 
The objective is to form a specific shape with seven pieces. 
The shape has to contain all the pieces, which may not overlap.
