A poetic antithesis to Bergson's 'duration'??? See this passage in Clarice Lispector's Água Viva:

"Only the act of love - the limpid star-like abstraction of feeling - captures the unknown moment, the instant hard as crystal and vibrating in the air and life is this untellable instant, larger than the event itself: during love the impersonal jewel of the moment shines in the air, the strange glory of the body, matter made feeling in the trembling of the instant - and the feeling is both immaterial and so objective that it seems to happen outside your body, sparkling on high, joy, joy is time's material and the essence of the instant."
