Dear Artists: | Balance
DEAR ARTISTS: There is an intricate balance in art that reflects the balance in the universe. First, let's define art. Art comes in different layers of different qualities, different purposes, different levels of thought and emotion. I cannot define art for you because I don't know the details of who you are. I can, however, define art as I see it from my current location and all those locations I have passed through. Artists often argue my points only from the basic and emotional level of self-expression, which is literally equivalent to a kindergarten level of art-making. If you never passed through education or physics, stfu because we're not on the same plane. We're not discussing the same thing. You're talking about an individual (usually yourself) while I'm talking about the whole of humanity. Those are not the same organism. If you continue arguing, you just look like a dumbass to me because of your refusal to accept that there are other (and often deeper) layers of a subject, that there are people who may know something you don't know. You're like overgrown children and it's irritating as fuck to be pooled with you. You're swimming in a puddle while I'm swimming in the deep blue sea at this point and I've just entered into the darkness where the only light I see is the phosphorescence of anglerfish and such. We are not the same and perspective, knowledge, experience, and depth are the distinctions. I drew you a picture to aid in your comprehension. We are distant from each other on our journies. I see where you are because when I turn around I can see the McDonald's I passed behind me. The future is uncertain because I haven't found anyone to follow which only means that I have no choice but to lead or get out of the way. I think if I get out of the way, it's a waste of life since I have paved a path others could follow to arrive here faster and more efficiently, and I could help them. If you carry on down the road of art long enough, inevitably, you will arrive at my current position. But instead of putting forth the effort to get here, you'd rather argue about shit you clearly know nothing of. I know this because when I turn around I see where you are and I know I've already been there and how much more you've left to go.
Now that our locations are relatively clear, we can move forward and I won't have to repeat this shit anymore because what can be more boring? Subscribe to the blog and learn something. Then bring on a sound argument. Thanks, in advance.
