What IS the idea? Fervent mediation throughout these lodged increments have yielded purely circumstantial feedback to date. Outcomes of all things are muddied by literally infinite data, coalescence of all things making all citizens smarter and dumber at once. Hatred inward/outward, there is mercy somewhere in both directions, the window for discovery is short and shrinks however. Tangible evidence of what we will never know for sure engulfs everything here from a distance - untouchable and unaccountably governing everything. Everything is shared for better or worse as privacy disintegrates and digital commodification proliferates. Sand is small rocks. Waves are waves. Melody, harmony, sound are as abstractly affecting powers as we can think of - things which are not entirely perceivable through our mathematical or scientific systems; simple and complex at once, beyond feeling, beyond everything. The ultimate in truly abstract expression.
