More importantly: he was a travesty of a fetishist. A true man of the libidinal trade would never have pulled the trigger. He couldn’t have. He'd have to withstand the chamber's sirenic clicks, refrain from touching its curves - congruently designed to welcome both fingers and bullets. Said endeavour would be, in itself, purely academic. Before even considering to engage in it, the fetishist would be immobilized by the alluring skin of the copper-jacketed bullets running through his fingers. Etc.
Reaching the trigger would be a mathematical impossibility.
Says Brian Massumi:
‘Or, if the arrow moved it is because it was never in any point. It was in passage across them all. The transition from bow to target is not decomposable into constituent points. A path is not composed of positions. It is non-decomposable: a dynamic unity. That continuity of movement is of an order of reality other than the measurable, divisible space it can be confirmed as having crossed. It doesn’t stop until it stops: when it hits the target. Then, and only then, is the arrow in position. It is only after the arrow hits its mark that its real trajectory may be plotted. The points or positions really appear retrospectively, working backwards from the movement’s end.’
