54.1.a.The genesis of a void, that can be a short and
precise formula that decribes the current situation. It is this
emptiness of the ego.
Since some time the
hypothesis of the "I" has got cracks. And
we all know by now that even the last ignoramus is challenged. But still
we stuck. You have to change your life! But
who could say this to whom?
Our modern psyche
is in the meanwhile organized in such a way that we would not allow
anymore any authority to say to us that we have to do something.
So the question
of the world can not be detached of the question of the subject.
There has existed a considerable amount of
narratives, and yet the understandings of the whole period modernity is a
sad error. The promise of progress and prosperity has forced homogeneity.
The promise has become a generalized but unvaried historical canon. As a
result, it seems impossible to grasp and comprehend the multiple and complex
turns throughout this historical period. But do we really have to waste
time anaylizing this Gordian knot, trying to grasp some of those threads.
We will miss these hours and we will have only this one life available
despite vaccinations. So what is a good and right life, how do I fill the
years, the hours, the moments. I already managed to synchronize my life
with the world. Now I try get out of it.
"Our sense of
inconsistency is just an effect of this silly belief in the permanence of
the ego and the little care we give to what constitutes us" . The separation of "I" and "world" in the Western tradition extends to
the whole of society and its relation to the environment. According to
this results in ecological, social and cultural crises of the present.
The Eastern view of the world is organic. Here, human beings see
themselves as part of the whole. Man feels that he belongs to the universe,
and all phenomena are interconnected and dynamic through reciprocal
relationships. This world view is based on
time and I Ching
universe is understood as a fundamental unity.
