When there is no more time for imagination, we lose our ability to understand and utilize metaphor. Thus, we begin to literalize every wise teaching into a concrete object, weapon, or idol to cling to. We no longer notice urges to win— we become them. We cannot discern between our own snap-judgements from another’s experience. And base instincts for more and more and more, and the survival of the all mighty bottom line becomes the myth we actively live out—-all the while knowing it cannot satisfy. We feel larger, more full, and powerful than ever, while inside we are small, empty, and weak. Denial of the fittest. #observations#currentmood#usa#world#condition#psychologicalstate#zeitgiest#zeitgiest2018#2018#june#parkinglotearth#denial
As the positions of the rocks change from moment to moment, they provide a tangible sense of the passage of time. Their movement calls forth the shifting of the techtonic plates, thereby conflating day to day change with a geological sense of time. In doing so no-fluke/no-feed/no-swim/no-play/no-fun reflects on our impact on the earths geology and ecosystems offering a poignant yet critical reflection on obsolescence and our material world.
