Monotonia

“The same things will happen again, and then will happen again,the same moments will come and go” C.Cavafy

“People without imagination are beginning to tire of the importance attached to comfort, to culture, to leisure, to all that destroys imagination…” R.Vaneigem

We live in a universal ‘condition’ which forces upon us a ‘monotonous situation’. Our ‘monotonous thoughts’ are designating our everyday acts of apathy that lead us to carapace behavior. Fake illusions of material goals lead us to a circle of events that create a monotonous life-motif. A ‘monotonous situation’ that is in favor of the few, facilitating this way a system of cultural prohibitions and isolated environment. The only enantiosis against this condition are the ‘forbidden illusions’ that have their roots in the expelled dreams of our childhood. These ‘illusions’, revive through the ‘obstructions’ that lead to minor revolutions, the awakening of our inner revolutionary voice, which this way breaks our circle of repetitive events and leads us to journeys of indagation.
