Georges Bataille: Echoes of a Word

Flowing into one another, the contents of various forms of expenditure (laughter, heroism, ecstasy, sacrifice, poetry, eroticism or others) defined of themselves a law of communication regulating the play of the isolation and the dissolution of beings. The possibility  of uniting at a precise point two types of knowledge which up to now had either been  unknown to  one another or only roughly  brought together, gave this ontology its unhoped-for consistency: thought dissolved in its entirety but was rediscovered again at a point where laughs the unanimous throng.
