Out of habit I do not recognize the weight of some of the activities, although they bravely try to break out of the course of daily routines. Moments of aimless walks, photos taken under the influence of vague impulses, worn out cursor movements are gathering in the sphere of small experiences. Boring vacation, proud solitude, zone of a free time, abundant hunger. Sometimes the minor actions write sensational stories. They mark themselves in the memory as key turning points, moments of important decisions that shape personality. Common experiences unexpectedly grow in strength. They provoke the transformation of mundane perception in the likeness of a long walk without a phone. Because it is difficult to express them, usually they are disappointing to the public. When society fails, or you fail society, only private practice can question the defeat of existence of the entities involved in the interactions with the systems of the organization. A lonely world presents itself as impossible, when all objects and creatures have name that accompanies them. To immerse in the experiencing, ignoring the intrusive companionship of the nomenclature. The feet are bizarre – I think while walking – although the brain does not to reveal anything of itself. There he goes. Ears, eyes, tongue are the proving grounds for the ruthless competition of meanings. Words are forming a landscape of the overused emotional states that anesthetize me. Feelings defend their interests, explicit and implicit objectives, to which common actions are subjected to. Wanting to achieve the goal, I adopt the perspective for the future and subordinate my actions to it. The fee is the so-called full experience of the present. To become a reality, objectives cleverly control the actions of its agents. The future, which appropriates dreams, is staring into now. Even the strangest dreams become banal because everything within them is possible. Reality beset with infinite number of determinants is a real mystery. Aspirations require infrastructure. Abstracts by which they operate, are reaping the medium from the cells, thanks to which they exist. Concrete, carpet, artificial light, pipes and installations that operate continuously. Other than the excellent facilities of the future or simple raw tools. The common elements which make up the present world. It is impossible for the dreams to come true grown on the basis that just ceases to exist. The present constantly masks its existence. It’s a surface, which underside is painted with grey effort of millions. It flows as a river of oil, carrying things and people. What’s more in the assumption that one is the common subject of a normal day, beyond the madness? If one could gather those thoughts, lay in a place where their material dimension connects with the moment lost for the future, and set on fire. Then stand next to the burning now.
