To me, death is the opponent of this desperate patriarchal dream about control, efficiency and domestication that is driven by fear and longing for safety. It's like a beautiful lightning compared to the controlled voltage of a LED. It is standing contrary to the idea of a world with predictable stability and foreseeable causalities so it still is the inherence of freedom and the mother of everything. Something is destroyed so something else can envolve. There is no ex nihilo in this world and no growth without an equal sacrifice. E.g. an econimic-minded person could build a bridge to our financial system that is based in the exact same illusion of eternal groth. It's always about more and the world seems to ignore the absurdity of this illusion which is doomed lead into destruction. Somehow this is comforting to me because the most terrifing thing is not destruction/death but this safety-profiding captivity, the glorifaction of a two-dimentional rationality, that puts us on the level of a machine, strictly rated by the materialistic outcome.

You take something away (electricity, mobile phone, TV ect.) and something else is growing, like the empathy for an authors writings. Like a blind man is able to hear better, absence aka darkness it the gatekeeper for groth- at least that's how I see it. With this in mind I like to spend a few weeks in complete isolation once a year, meaning no electronical devices and no contact to any other person. It's a wonderful eye-opener and the whole world appears in a different light afterwards.
