  1. …nothing strange, the author says, no secret message…just art…

    • From the first video, ‘To make adults like children, to be illiterate…’
      Classic sophist.

      • Any of a group of professional fifth-century bc Greek philosophers and teachers who speculated on theology, metaphysics, and the sciences, and who were later characterized by Plato as superficial manipulators of rhetoric and dialectic.

        • That, and also this definition from the same link:

          “a person who uses clever or quibbling arguments that are fundamentally unsound; from sophizesthai ‘to act craftily'”

          It is absurdity. Like the video Joel linked the other day about the Frankfort school and the effort to destroy society. The propagation of meaninglessness, or absurdity. In other words – stupid.

          • to sum this up: the agenda is to dumb down the society.

            • exactly!!
              LORD bless

              • I read a while ago the thesis that all that abstract art that reigned the 20th century was nothing else than the agenda of the usual suspects to dumb down the society, since the lack of beauty & aesthetics creates is detrimental for the creation of a sane, productive & strong individual.
                unfortunately I can no longer find that study/thesis….
                can you help, adirondack, with the theory here? thanks

                • When the man in the video said ‘there was no meaning in his art’, that is his intent. He might be lying, but I think he really believes his art provides “no meaning”. For him, the antithesis of anything is creative. Though nature takes a prominent place in his art form, the absurdity is due to its’ irrationalism. For example, people do not really copulate and turn into a crocodile. I think to derive any meaning from the art, even metaphorically, is to miss the artists point. He would rather people look at his art and “be a child”, according to how he defines what “being a child” is, which for him is to find no meaning in his art, not even metaphorical meaning.

                  His philosophy is in line with the popular cultural movement of postmodernism. Other fruits of postmodernism are arguably called deconstructionism, nilhilism, and existentialism, though postmodernism was historically named later than some of its’ identifiable fruits.

                  There is a real benefit to meaninglessness when framed in the context of rationalism. Nilhilism (meaninglessness) is the extreme polar opposite of rationalism; thus, rationalism is the other extreme polar opposite. Both are extreme, and both are correctional efforts by people. When one extreme subjectively goes too far, people will strive to correct, the extreme that had gone too far, with the other extreme. Yet they are both extremes, and thus, both go too far.

                  In my opinion, that back and forth experience by people from one extreme to the other extreme is the experience of the fallen, sinful world. The world is not perfect. There is something wrong here. The only way out of the slavery of sin and thus, the hopeless effort to fix (correct) one extreme with the other extreme is by the power of God’s salvation in His giving of repentance and faith in Christ. Yet in this life, the presence of sin remains in the believer, but sins’ power over the believer is broken. Even when a believer may fall into terrible sin and despair, sins’ power is not the master of the believer, Christ is his Lord. To believe that message is how believers progressively throughout their life come out from under sins grip; for the believer, enabled, conquerors. This is the gospel message I hear and believe in, and which I believe Christ through the Holy Spirit is working into His church. (I was thinking of mainly Romans 6 and Romans 8:37-39 when I wrote most of this last paragraph.)

                  Romans 8:37-39, “37 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. 38 For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, 39 neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

                  • thanks, interesting…although not the reply I was searching for…will continue to search the piece of theory that links the ugly with trauma & deconstructed individual..

              • 🙂 I owe you a comment on the theological discussion we started recently…I don’t remember the name of the tread though 😦
