There is one mistake that we make to live this life is that we think we see it all in our lives. I disagree. The life is full of nothingness, and we are not trained to see it. We chronically behold the boredom and take it for granted to forget about it. That is what we think the awareness of seeing the world.
I again disagree. The rueful thing about human beings is not being trained to aware of ‘nothingness’ which we often take it for granted to forget, or seriously. The bitter remorse of tragedy of our lives begins from here. When we reminiscence of disappearing time-what is there is only emptiness.
The feeling of emptiness, we live in these ruins, yet we hardly face it because we fear of it. We feel something missing every time we recall what we had before but we have no idea what was there. This painful bottomless is recursive and that is the result from neglect of resisting of fear.
The time and space there is forgotten memories, and there are ruins, which scare me the most and inspire me the most. I see this world through the view finder and record the world as banal as it is.
Our surroundings are changing delicately and subtly. We just don’t pay much attention to it. What we know is to stimulate our sense in an extreme way just to get away from the fear of banal, but that is just an evasion to the reality. The reality is always slightly changing. And it explains the reality is already surreal enough.
