"Gou Gou Gou" (围棋)
"Gou Gou Gou" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
During the Second World War, the Enigma Machine created a possible 159 million million million code combinations each day. Every morning, the code was reset and new possibilities for secret communications would burst forth. What many forget is that of these vast possibilities, the Enigma code still ended in a singularity, in actionable consequences, in history. In other words, possibilities don’t stay possibilities forever. Eventually even the Hugh Hefners, Richard Bransons, and all the other bon viveurs who lap up possibilities become settled. The shifting nature of realities dictates that what was taboo yesterday is in fashion today; what was new 5 minutes ago is today a tired dog. The trick is to accept the target as moving, to live comfortably within whatever circumstances you find yourself. Some scholars of the Zhuangzi have identified this behavioral trend in Daoist texts, coining the term “genuine pretending” to describe it. Destruction and hollowing of the self allows for more adaptation to the present moment; in shifting times, what else can you ask for?
