Destillat: Choosing “Magic”

The choosing “Magic” as the overall term to define one of the proposal, sounds, mind like a foolish idea. Important elements of “Magic” perhaps to other word in such evocative form. Magic is a silent shadow of the cultural form, philosophy and own understanding.

The magic happens when an artist creation uses technology in a way that it removes tech from tech. The relationship between art und magic is a relationship of complete opposites. Magie bring back some of the strangeness and mystery chaotic potential, that the culture has lost along the time. Mysticism is upon us: it begins simultaneously from culture and science.

The system of the world is the beginning of the phantasmagoria of the epoch, imagination, culture and traditions. The results was phantasmagoric, understood ecologically or topographically rather than as something spectral.

We  can understand  the magic of reality, on the basis of our definition of our mind, which is opened and framed by the existence and  the essence.

Zitat: The Image

This space and time peculiar to the image is none other than the world of magic, a world in which everything is repeated and in which everything participates in a significant context. Such a world is structurally different from that of the linear world of history in which nothing is repeated and in which everything has causes and will have consequences. For example: In the historical world, sunrise is the cause of the cock’s crowing; in the magical one, sunrise signifies crowing and crowing signifies sunrise. The significance of images is magical. “

Zitat: Technic und Magic, 2018

Might it not be the case that change seems impossible, because technically it is impposible? And might it not be the case that imgatiation, action or even  just life ot happiness seems impossible, because the are impossible, at least within the present reality settings?
