memorials: part three by NikolasBrummer memorials: part three by NikolasBrummer
this is the place of night time. I once wrote about how night is a paradoxical thing, and even though I still believe it is true, it's also the time of truth. so many words were spoken here, so many thoughts drifted through my head. one day, this bench invited me to take a seat and put things in order; and then, we became friends. I visited her often in the beginning of this year, and after a while, I brought along Donna. Donna understood the bench, and so did the bench understand Donna. from then on, sitting down right there and talking became a tradition.
we never hid our feelings. we never pushed away the negativity. this was all honest, and we were all honest, and all that mattered was to let everything go by putting it into words.
it seems to me that the seemingly most ugly places can hold the most precious wisdom.

let's go for a walk.

A very black picture, many things come to mind. Landmarks of despair everywhere, the wrenching melancholia of loss and going back to those places alone, or maybe a portrayal of the devoidness of beautiful purpose in mass society. Almost can't look at it. Good photography ofc.

I have experienced something very similar. It's amazing the way darkness can uncover a different perspectives, and perhaps different interpretations of truth. During the day, we shine a spotlight on personalities, traits, and some types of conventions. But in the darkness we often must face the unnerving chaos of nature. In the dark, our social conventions are not as able to place labels on everything and pretend to knowledge of good, evil, and a whole range of fakeness.

Basically, the night gives us a little glimpse of the power of science. Instead of the popular quote that says that science brings us out of darkness, I think science allows us to use what we often find in the darkness to show that what we see in the light is often deceptive, if not completely false.

I won't quote anything this time, but your comments remind me to Sartre's book "Nausea" because he also comments that we best find the truth in the dark. On the other end of the spectrum, the great Bertrand Russell wrote one of my favorite books, "The Problems of Philosophy", in which he excellently shows how deceptive our perceptions can be by simply studying his table!

This is such a nice comment, thank you for your words! Night time, indeed, it's kind of uncovering all these ways we can look at a thing ... and leaves so much space for our own mind that sometimes it's haunting us.
