It's making me think about Eva Rothschild on democratic sculptures: "Public art has to demonstrate generosity towards the public." What does that mean digitally? I think we're witnessing how digital knowledge can be designed for public generosity, & I'm excited for what's next.
“It seems that two qualities are necessary if a great artist is to remain creative to the end of a long life; he must on the one hand retain an abnormally keen awareness of life, he must never grow complacent, never be content with life, must always demand the impossible and when he cannot have it, must despair. The burden of the mystery must be with him day and night.”
To strive is to treat a threat as ordinary business. It spoils many considerations and is soothing by reason of a remembrance that makes certain there is a pleasure in interrupting variety. To make everything solid is pleasing to the eye, there can be faintly streaked blue when some sky is completed, there can be fancy embroidery. Order means sweeping. Sweeping means order. Every gradient of lightness is heavy, that is to say lightness is not only firm but quiet, quiet because blue, and that means, for instance, red occurs in the greenery. Every kind of change is orderly. There are irregular lines corresponding with roundness. There are indented places with colours. All places nearly are sweetly open, and so comes all the way around until there is a face for all of them.
i’ve recently been really intrigued with the idea of things compounding overtime. leaving small bread crumbs of thoughts, feelings & curiosities that eventually compile into a fully formed idea or within that, begin the process of actualisation in said idea. it’s so organic, intuitive & some what mystical which i think is why i’m so drawn to it. i often go back to old notes which i wrote down 2/3 years ago and marvel at how they still hold weight today and at times it’s as though they foreshadowed my current reality today.
What to do instead of ghosting someone 👻
Peak experiences such as moments of insight or epiphany are often followed by plateaus. Such insights can fade quickly without the presence of a ‘‘scaffolding’’ for the learning process to assist with making meaning of the unfamiliar experience, such as: (1) having a language and cultural context for the experience; (2) having supportive like-minded community, including contact with more experienced practitioners (also necessary for ego development); (3) encountering or intentionally placing daily reminders of the experience in one’s environment, which in NLP are called anchors; (4) continuing to access similar teachings; or (5) expressing the insight through art, writing or other action (using the sensual alpha brain wave state as a bridge from deep subliminal theta experience to everyday mind beta experience).
