Amid the forest. Listening to Glass’ Koyaanisqatsi. I sense a strong, empirical feeling of humanity’s cyclical development of civilisation in which we are clearly in the downturn. Our artistic expressions and delicacies are unmatched to those of ancient civilisations and pre-modern. Human inventions are destroying the ecology which we ultimately depend on. And our leaders put local benefits before a realisation of the common future. The grave period of suffering is upon us. And the revival is looming thereafter.
