This chapter examines Christ's indiscernible messianity. It is not clear whether “Christ” marks an evental source-point in history and theory or instead outlines a transversal in philo-theological space. It argues that Christ is a vector of messianity that addresses itself to the world and that comes from humans into a “space” no longer defined by philosophical coordinates (ecstatic-horizontal transcendence and ecstatic-vertical transcendence, ontology and theology). It also considers retrospective theological and philosophical interpretations of Christ, his reduction to his “macroscopic” or worldly role as a founder of religion, as forms of the pure and simple destruction of the being of his superposition. Finally, it discusses the distinction between the two aspects of unilateral duality: the lived immanence of the generic Same (the Last Instance or the subject-science) and the transcendence that has unilateralized or fallen into immanence.
