Liberated Negative Space: That IS the truth

It never does. That’s why the truth has to be dug to be got to, because we can’t conceive the entirety of it, just pieces at a time, like the first team uncovering the fossil of a tyrannosaur, only when they finally glimpse the whole shape of it, it comes to life and eats them all. Jesus Christ, if we went around with the whole truth in our heads all the time, we’d never stop screaming until someone finally looked the other way and we managed ten seconds of privacy to kill ourselves and end the horrifying senselessness. That’s truth. Not just stranger than fiction — messier and a lot more painful, yes?

    Absolutely! I often wonder, considering how painful the glimpses I get are to me, what must they be like for those who see so much more than I do?

    What I love about the truth is how few people are compelled to accept it, yet just about everyone wants to confront it and substitute their own.

    In other words, if people just went ahead and did the following
    “Eat all your words, swallow your pride, open your eyes”…
    We’d have a lot more silence and “leisure time for artists everywhere”…
    Wouldn’t we?

    “The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the deadly light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft, “The Call of Cthulhu”, 1926

    this is a real inspiring post.

    do really images control our ‘way of living’ (daily life), or is it an illusion as the other images shown rapidly to us every minute, to make thinkers believers…
    maybe images makes us relax. maybe not…maybe they are the truth itself, maybe not…
    maybe it’s just the system internalizing everything.

    sorry for my shit english
