Dag tot dag strategieën (Day to day strategies)
Inside we are aware that these day to day strategies will not work. in the end we are temporary, chained in a flesh bag gasping for air obsessed with the `I` , lost to a limited perspective. the single line, from beginning to end. connectedness, caring, the idea that `I` am part of a greater whole, Our machines, Our noise, Our eternal. Promendus. I can think ahead in time, adjust my behavior accordingly and make symbols. Because I can think ahead in time I am aware of my temporality. I am still an animal so I will flee, fight or freeze. Society’s only function is to distract us from the fact that we are temporary. Tribal attachment, getting lost and surrendering. But I will not flee. Do not go submissively into that good night but scream, shout against the extinction of light. Chained by perspective, my ´I´ searches the wilderness.
