You know this feeling. This strong feeling of awe that makes you kneel. Your eyes direct themselves upwards and the rest of your body follows. Your mouth opens and you stand there in awe.
What you see is not the present but the past, the light that reaches your retina has travelled millions of years through the void since it has left the surface of the stars you are unable to see in their current shape.
Oh Astronomy - historiography of the universe!
You know this feeling. This strong feeling of awe that makes you kneel. Your eyes focus into nothingness and your body welcomes the invitation of the music. The vibrations spread through your body and you stand there in awe.
What you see is not important anymore. The light still reaches your retina and causes electrical signals to travel to your brain, but you don’t see anything anymore. You just hear.
Oh Music – dazzling sun of the mind!
You know this feeling. This strong feeling of awe that makes you kneel. Your eyes wander in the room and your body follows. Sense is shaped and reshaped by those movements and you stand there in awe.
Every new eye movement leads to a new movement of the body, every new body movement to a new position in the room, every new position to a new perspective and every new perspective to a new shape of sense.
Oh Seeing – choreography of meaning!
The position of your eyes in space and time decides what you can and cannot see, what you can and cannot think. But bodies cannot stand on the same place. They drift like celestial bodies on their own paths through the universe. Everybody looks from somewhere else. Everybody has their own perspective and therefore their own interpretation of life. Sometimes you drift closer or farer to the past, sometimes you drift in a group around a sun, sometimes you drift alone.
We will never see what the other sees, but still: we share one room and can witness the dances of the others guided by their very own eyes. How do we react on them? Do we join their dances? Do we dance on our own? But what is our orientation? Should we imitate the others or should we do the opposite? Should we dance to the rhythm of other bodies or to the rhythm of the music? Should we orbit around a star or follow straight our path into the unknown?
Oh Life – what a dance!
