Since the female ova are still unknown to him, Aristotle acknowledges and distinguishes between two generative substances, semen and menstrual blood. These two respective ﬂuids largely act and react in accordance with the philosophical and ideological binarism that determines their value—except for the simple fact that the sperm, for all its active, spiritual, and formative propensities, cannot but be also a substance. This awkward predicament constantly threatens the gendered and binary opposition that Aristotle’s treatise on human and animal reproduction sets up.
However, the already established separation from the context of generation, so as to enable the sperm to appear in mid-air, hovering and star-like, makes it probable that it will end up in the same way as Aristotle’s wad of dried-up phlegm. Finally, the instantaneous movement of the semen through space causes it to appear in a particular manner. Its hue of white is not pure, smooth, isotopic, or homogeneous. Rather, this speciﬁc off-white is opalescent or milky, consisting of internal variations in density, speed, color, and lighting.

Voided or erased, because a supplementary white, like Tipp-Ex or gum, marks that same page with an active blotting, with “disappearance, erasure, non-sense” (253). This goes not only for Mallarmé’s use of blanks and white spaces as a structuring element in his poetry, but also, even more intimately, for the white that separates the letters of the words on the page, which allows them to appear as discrete, and hence, readable, signs or markers to begin with.
