Ah yes, bash.org. It's been quite a while since I've been there. It's easy to burn several hours there. Quite amusing, those quotes are.

re: Cole is negotiating the abject
The ajbject was a notion developed by Julia Kristeva, who you may remember from such films as "When Mas Lost Her Ability to Comprehend the Written Word".
So you are familiar with theories - psychological, philosiphicalk, literary, cultural and otherwise - regarding the formation of Subject and Object. I won't bore you with that.
Kristeva states that there is also the Abject.
There is a breaking, a rejection, already within the body that becomes, at a certain threshold, the thetic break. The thetic break is the point at which the subject takes up a position, an identification.

The abject is both what is part of you but what you reject. --shit, puss, vomit, rotting flesh, scabs, cadavers, etc.
through this rejection/repudiation you form identity by defining yourself by the absence of these things from your person.

Tetsuo becomes an Other, for example, in the film Akira. His body limits are distorted and he goes through an abjection in order to become. (if you will remember, the last line of the film is "I am Tetsuo" ..a statement of self if I ever heard one.)

to negotiate something is fancy pants talk for to think about something, or to reckon with it.
