The realization of human fragility immediately implies a stagnation of its causes. As the administration of the control society becomes tighter, the most primary and universal feelings erupt in a blatant and/or pathetic way. Feelings that are always above the law, and always under your yoke. With the Industrial Revolution, the myth of a detachment of vital energies was solidified, but utopia was configured as the pure reification of life, by administering and overcoding any and all existing substances.

As soon as a system reaches its completion, its decay begins, as it has abruptly shifted from the eternal ephemeral of existence. With the breaking point open, hemorrhages no longer end and they erupt with the violence of 9/11, migratory flows worldwide, with the huge increase in drug addiction and neurosis, with the feeling of loneliness as well as absence. As this torrent progresses, the notion of being a flow impossible to stop by human consciousness becomes more precise.
