“…parasitism takes place when the parasite comes to live off the life of the body in which it resides – and when, reciprocally, the host incorporates the parasite to an extent, willy nilly offering it hospitality: providing it with a place. The parasite then ‘takes place.’ And, at bottom, whatever violently ‘takes place’ or occupies a site is always something of a parasite. Never quite taking place is thus part of its performance, of its success as an event, of its taking place…”  - Jacques Derrida
