What happens to the Thing when someone says it?
Does it live? Does it die?
How to create an open form able to go beyond the limit of language in describing reality?
Is it possible to create a language that the system is unable to co-opt?
Is silence a better option?

The perspective I look through is Powerlessness.
Powerlessness is not weakness. Rather it is a strict discipline in accepting paradoxes.
A daily rephrased utopia.
An exercise of non-power.
