There is a regular sine-flux in the arts between manifesto and business plan. Both make claims on the future and attempt to build out into them with firm structures (the utopia of numbers, the utopia of being-right… both unreal). This life in expectation is very useful, and the sine flux works out to a hale average; we’re able to sustain our dying forever it seems. Also needed in a time of dying we also need revelation. What is being revealed is clear in me; we are being revealed; we reveal nothing. If I’m remembering the book of the apocalypse correctly (apocalypse/revelation being synonyms) John starts by eating the sacred message… revelation is a process of inner transformation. Silence is revelation. Not-doing can = showing.
Trade expectation for receptivity.
