A Collection of Spectacles

Currently, my most pressing question is whether my problems, primarily this unhappiness that is seeded so deep that I am never sad in the classic sense, but instead suspended in a perpetual state of boredom, is my body’s way of responding to external pressures, or if something defective is internally ingrained. 

“…thought concerns what he terms ‘the lost symmetry of the blastosphere’ – the primitive precursor of the embryo that is the last structure to preserve perfect symmetry in all planes.” 

Because, as we grow into fully developed beings, we are never quite the same on both sides.

    You know what Benjamin would say about your perpetual boredom?

    It’s a product of our society.

    I think you want to be bored,
    or some other unfair analysis.

    Certainly. He’d claim it’s caused by the speed with which everything bombards us, which in the past brought about movements like Futurism (and that absurd manifesto) in which the fast-paced and violent are subject to fetishism. This, it’s argued, can plummet society into the fascist state. However, for one reason or another, we’re not nearly as passionate about this social decline today, and armed with our “toys,” I’d make the argument that we’re all a little bored, in one sense or another.

    The beginning ingredients in the recipe for the banality of evil?

    Oh, Orit. She’s amazing.

    To sever the umbilical cord that connects the physical reality(-ties) and the reality in our minds is the most challenging task. Impossible, perhaps.
