SEE FLOWERS IN HELL 2021
See Flowers In Hell is an expression of time, with a longing to understand outside of it.
Each of us lead a life with its own point of reference under the sun. Things gather, connect, break, blossom, wither and occasionally lead to glimpses of understanding. Moments of being totally present in truth where time loses all meaning. But if questioned, you become again caught up in time.
One night, I came across an article written about Albert Einstein by Philosopher Rudolf Carnap in which he wrote:
“Einstein said the problem of the now worried him seriously. He explained that the experience of the now means something special for man, something essentially different from the past and the future, but that this important difference does not and cannot occur within physics. That this experience cannot be grasped by science seemed to him a matter of painful but inevitable resignation. So he concluded ‘that there is something essential about the now which is just outside the realm of science.”
Or perhaps outside of time? An immediate sense that has never needed time and its distance to be understood.
