Love by reason of its passion, destroys the in-between which relates us to and separates us from others. As long as its spell lasts, the only in-between which can insert itself between two lovers is the child, love’s own product. The child, this in-between to which the lovers now are related … is representative of the world in that it also separates them; it is an indication that they will insert a new world into an existing world.
