...Bataille left his mark everywhere between real, infra-real and supra-real. His way was Nietzsche's - eruptive and disruptive. He accentuates divisions and widens gulfs rather than filling them, until that moment when the lightning flash of intuition/intention leaps from one side to the other, from earth to sun, from night to day... Lefevbre The Production of Space
Zizek also uses the notion of the short circuit in discussion of the 'parallax gap' - points between which no synthesis or mediation is possible.
The faulty connection, cross wiring, is like Freud's Fehleistung... misperformance, faulty action...parapraxis.
