I’m just trying to situate these ideas, that Kenny dies in so many episodes, and then with no explanation appear again, and that this is sensible enough. Odd, but hey, it’s worked for 24 seasons, God knows how many episodes. I’m trying to make this okay for Kant, in light of Kant’s sublime, or Hume or…
It might work But that’s beside the point. My real concern is that this works for me, and so, why? If not, why not? And for you the audience, me as part of that audience, it’s not only okay, it delights us enough that we continue watching. For years. Or at least enough of us are delighted that the series continues and Kenny isn’t written out of it. Shit, he’s in his 30s. I keep comparing him to Jesus but really, at this point, Kenny’s lived longer if you think of him as not resurrected, just keeping on keeping on. That’s different than Jesus, the risen Jesus.
Irrespective of what Kant, or Husserl, or Heidegger have to say about it. And, of course, they are all long dead. They don’t have Kenny’s superpowers.
Does it make sense to us? That’s the only question that matters really, at first. It seems to, yes, it seems to make sense to us. But do I love this work, this life? That leaves me silent, and that’s a good thing.
