As the map is revealed, less is to be discovered.
I can't decide whether fake news is simply another part of the map or an invader. It completely inverts what patty's saying as the more you know, the less clear things become.My sense is that the map is so vast that we've barely walked out our front door. Infinite time and space.
In terms of what is of what can be in terms of what we know what we have already discovered or suspected in terms of how much is still to come and discoveries still to be made.In what sense?
sometimes you can discover things by zooming out thoughThe journey of discovery, exploration. As the map is revealed, less is to be discovered. So much of 90s electronic music conveyed that sense of exploration. A journey into the unknown. It was exciting.
That's right.It's the same with meeting new people isn't? you're a tourist in their life and it's exciting for a while, until you start recognizing the same areas and the thrill of discovery fades. Then you gotta hope that they make a good home.
I sometimes feel like I'm destined to be the tourist forever.
was thinking, in regards to third's thread, for me there is a certain "zoomed out" quality to a lot of this stuff. like this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_game. a lot of these composers, like xenakis, used words like "clouds" or "galaxies" to describe the dense clusters of sounds they used, which I think fits as well.
.Yeah, that or zoomed right in. You're looking at either distant stars and galaxies or microorganisms - maybe even both.
With you there, we're at the end of an age in certain senses. End of the Mayan calendar for a start. The exploration age I'm talking about is but a drop in the ocean, ultimately. But there was a clear narrative for people to witness and feel a part of. The chapters had beginnings, middles and ends. Discovery A leads to result B. A war is fought and won which leads to xyz, etc etc. Dance music was part of a technological explosion and happened to coincide with various socio political factors that gave it a sense of positive progress. Intertwined in its fabric was that sense of exploration. Positive exploration. Now music seems to reflect the scorched earth. The lost souls and minds of our collective. Maybe its a big shake out. Maybe this is a transition to the next age. A Mexican lady I worked with in the kitchen at the Buddhist place was telling me that that's how it is. We're in for plenty of turbulence, maybe for the next 50 years. It was vague but I could tell she meant it.In terms of what is of what can be in terms of what we know what we have already discovered or suspected in terms of how much is still to come and discoveries still to be made.
My sense is that there are other territories, other regions of discovery, comparable to the discovery of the Americas, whole zones, hitherto unimagined, to be explored.
This is what I believe.
