Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.
- Martin Luther (1483-1546)
Inspired by Martin Luther's (1483-1546) quote, "Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.". The titled responsion is "Dichotomy?". What follows is subject to revision, do you have any suggestions?
False profits, dichotomies of pluralities and other such contractions on terms are, and result in a confused directionality of sorts. Which way do we go when the only option left is physically distancing. Intimacy aside, the bipartisan reality of 2020 coupled with the COVID crisis is an existential crisis of a lifetime.
Gore Vidal - The Dictator
Inspired by Gore Vidal's (1925-2012) quote, "There is no human problem which could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise". The titled responsion is...
We are listening but we tend to keep on walking, immersed in our own realities of proximal and distal influences of potentiality. Submissive for some and counter-intuitive for most, the social fallout is far from tribal, identities shift while paradigms persist. Why do we cry out for change when entropy is everywhere? Is the bubble about to burst?
Indifference is the Opposite of Love
Inspired by Albert Einstein's (1879-1955) quote, "The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.". The titled responsion is...
The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.
