Dear Harald,

Thank you for answering the problem set by my three days ago posting.
It was indeed automated formating which -- in my vision of the thing --
explains something about alienation of work and workers.

All the sadness and uglyness going with it along.

At the same time, what you hint to be as this Esoteric Hidden Monster was it
all yet present since say the days  human strata (tools and signs) came to
the surface
into its birth, existence?

It seems often mental/physical difficulty to address the esoteric issue
could be resolved, one day, in "making the step", "faire un pas" as said
a photographer once visionary into XXcentury ( a friend of Gherasim Lucca)

CGI are not a bliss, my problem is that it serves nearly to 100percent in
accademical art
mentality, the later which, to my opinion is not derived from the Universe
of art itself,
but from (could I say?) some philosophy, or at least reasoning?
and that the CGisters take their bliss for what in humble vision of me is
repetitive cliche
and boredom in automated visions. & there of course comes the opportunity
to regulate the codes and the frustrations

when the addressing of the issue, to quote you say, is "ignored"
it might be due to the fact that you are
addressing the issue of power of some daimoniac entity
that rules with Envy the thoughts of Innocent Mankind.

There's another ring thing. In Refrain (Ritournelle)
a part from the fact that
i would enjoy the PAGE (x) wherein there's reference
to religion enlarged and explained to me (cfr. birds as forces of the air
and fishes as forces of the salted waters) in Mircea Eliade (Treaty of
History of Religions)
with the Earth being in the center of the territory
aswell as being meanwhile far, far away (and yet finding nothing alas of
this in M Eliades book)
from it, i think it would
be interesting to seek
this issue of automatism and alienation from
the point of view of territory.

but i think i might cannot do it here,
i need to construct it bits by bits,
with visions and sounds
i am not sure if reading,
if carry on reading Empire will lead me somewhere.

thanks for your full answer anywhere
