In the "aim" we are united. Yet, in this very unity, we have very many subcategories that divide us. One person's aim can be the very destruction of another. It is this unity of well-being that has led to many sociological and political issues. How does that which will destroy be avoided?

Violence is the easiest concept that the human condition must shed. Passionate discharge is followed by discharge is followed by discharge. The angry begat the angered, and the circle, once begun, is never solved. An action that presupposes itself can never be destroyed unless the original action ceases.

This is the problem: never, in the history of humanity, has one person ever been able to have enough stature as to make the entire world listen to his/her very words, and to follow. So the end of violence must not come from the advice of any human: it must come from a source that we can all share and worship. Fascism leads to jealousy, unless the leader who rules us all is not of the human race. It is highly impossible that we will ever find a leader in the animal kingdom. Thus, we must worship the cross, the Kabballa, the Koran, the Latin Vulgate, the Old Testament, Mathematics, and any such dogma, religious or otherwise, in the hopes that it is not rooted in lies, and that we will be visited by that which can deliver us from our selves.

And so we wait together.

Yet what if we can provoke this ethereal and surreal creature to come to our aid? Our pleads and prayers have, as of yet, kept us from a second coming of any such omnipotent creator, but we truly need divine intervention. Yet, if what we are told is true, the second coming may very well be the end of the human race.

Is it possible that our only salvation is through our own destruction?

Another possibility is in a message which is not delivered by this creator Himself, but rather from an intermediary. The writer often finds himself staring back at words that might not seem his own. This sort of "possession" could lead mankind to trust a message even if it is delivered from his/her own faulty race.

Yet how do we convince the entire world that a message is not altered, and has, indeed, been passed directly from another race, of divinities, and is merely "passed on" to the hands and lips of the human intermediary?

This is also a difficult prospect, for often the most bold of claims can be seen as mental disorder, or cerebral chaos. How do we trust our own flesh?

Simply put, I cannot see any way that even I could trust my own kind. We are a faulty bunch, and thus not prone to be trusted. All that is lacking for world peace is a universal message, and yet this is the most impractible of all events. For the message cannot pass from lips, but from the air around us, from the ground underneath our feet, or from the clouds above our heads. We need the Mother to call unto us, and beg us of our mercy. And yet, we have often heard this cry. The earth is passing into failing, and yet still some cling to their guns, their nuclear weapons, and their knives. Even fists must be rid in order for our Mother to be soothed, but there is no prospect for the loss of these things.

So, even though I know it to be only to be disregarded, I beseech all of Earth to hear our Mother's cry, to not wait until the seond coming to hear of violence's hideous and insipid circle of torture before you lay down your arms.

I fear the Earth has not much more patience for us as it stands now, let alone if we tempt her even further.

On the Human Purpose

Posted 12 January 2002, 6.56 pm by Shaggy


Every human being has an aim. Whether it be benign or malignant, preposterous or rational, there is a tiny passion inside even the most inanimate of the living which is a driving force: a mother strives to protect her child, a father strives to educate his young, the philosopher strives to see the most of wisdom. The inanimate strive to survive, or they perish. The perishable strive to see a better world on the other side.

It is this "aim" in which humanity survives. If one has a purpose, whatever the case may be, one will exist that much longer to see it through, even if that passion is not horribly not constructive. The alcoholic lives to see another empty bottle, the television addict strives to see another showcase, the pessimist lives to prove how terrible the world is.

In the "aim" we are united. Yet, in this very unity, we have very many subcategories that divide us. One person's aim can be the very destruction of another. It is this unity of well-being that has led to many sociological and political issues. How does that which will destroy be avoided?

Beautiful.

I'm frightened to write too soon after this, as mine will go completely unnoticed.

Thanks a lot, asshole.

THE FEELING IN YOUR WORDS IS NECESSARY AND STRONG. BUT THE MESSAGE IS CONFUSED, YET YOUR POINT IS CLEAR . IF ANY OF A SIMPLE MIND WERE TO READ IT, THEY WOULD FEEL OVERWHELMED BY YOUR URGENCY AND MISS THE MESSAGE. WRITE CAUTIOUSLY AND ALSO WRITE TO THOSE THAT MIGHT NOT UNDERSTAND.THIS REASON MIGHT VERY WELL BE WHY MANY HAVE MISSED THE "MESSAGE" . ITS TOO MUCH. SIMPLIFY. KEEP PRACTICING, YOU'LL GET THERE.

This piece was inspired by Andy Warhol's famous 'marilyn monroe' piece in which the same picture is used several times to create a pattern. If you look closely, you'll realise there's a lot going on here with the detailed background against the simple pixelated images create a convergence which I thought would be nice to experiment with. It was created in Photoshop and took me 5 hours to perfect.
