On one hand, dark matter is the outside of special relativity theory, that which is excluded from electromagnetic force, that which exceeds the speed of light; on the other hand, dark matter is included in special relativity as its constitutive outside, as that which is necessary for electromagnetism to be intelligible as a force, as that which has no speed. The paper inhabits and is inhabited by this landscape, and if, periodically, a critique emerges, it is nothing but an indeterminate side-effect of this cohabitation. I will argue that this framework must necessarily connect to the constitutive subjective ambivalence that Judith Butler supplementing Foucault and Lacan has theorized under the rubric of power.
