Being nothing is the perpetual state of the world. Since the very moment that our consciousness appears, “time” pops up preoccupied by destruction. Human beings on the other hand ceaselessly strive against threats of nothingness. We build houses and hide behind the walls of civilization.
We try to organize the world to make it predictable assuming that chaos is conquerable. Seemingly place is firm axis around which the being revolves.
It’s such a strange story that the whole being is of time. Understanding the present moment means finding it between past and future. This present time lapses into past and only a faint memory of place makes it perceptible. Thereby making an image of being is paradoxical and only accessible through imagining dramatic changes in place before and after the present time.
