How To Clean Plastic Hairbrushes

Antyutopia, metro and eschatology

From seeing Controllers Nimrod Antal (2003), when in the film see the metro, I immediately think about the afterlife. Metro is a contemporary Styx, is not enough that you need to leave the ground, it's still in the dark, the crowd of anonymous individuals, they were taking you somewhere. In addition, without obol - which took over the function held, although rarely in his teeth, a ticket - can be hard. For this reason, when at the beginning of the human predicament saw a guy standing at the edge platform, I thought: "Oh Someone here just die. " With the belief that the hero is dead, I watched movie about halfway, then niIe I was so sure, and at the end, I discovered that the tooth did not know what's going on, but probably something going on, because the film seemed to be too well made, so to just about anything would not go.
Andreas, the protagonist of the human predicament Jens Lien (2006), shall be brought by bus to a gas station located somewhere in the total wilderness. Hanging on the building prepared for the old sheet with the word "Welcome". Landed and returned by car later became the city: waits for his own apartment, work accountant - and with it the computer and my own office. People are nice, boss cares about their well-being, soon meets the beautiful furniture saleswoman by trade and interior decorator with a passion. Life seems more and more arranged and pleasant, but still something did not play. I have no idea where the man there took and why, it was clear, but the hero makes an impression as confused.

Gradually the world presented in the film emerges from the good old - and most importantly: a familiar - the spirit of Huxley. In our world there is no love or violent emotions: Anne Britt, with whom lived Andreas is interested in only the vases, and furniture repair. He treats his partner as one of these elements: it's not moved away to another woman, not interested in coming back or his face covered in blood - important to be an evening with friends or accompanied her kart. Ingeborg, in which the protagonist falls in love with its remarkably resembles Lenin: as the heroine Brave New World was horrified by the prospect long view of Bernard Marx, so Ingeborg does not seem to impress the prospect of monogamy alongside Andreas. He says: "I did not know it was such a relationship. Serious, "and love with a man realizes that, although it is" nice ", but it is nice and many other guys she meets.

World, which got the title perplexing man, is sterilized. Not only the lack of emotion there. Also missing tastes, smells, sounds. Alcohol pitym all night at the bar, you can not get drunk. Hot chocolate is only a dream. Smell of the kitchen and baked cakes, the sounds of music coming out from behind a thick wall in the basement electrifies all residents of the house. The slit of light, for which there is another reality, but is soon cemented by officers in gray uniforms.

These services tentatively I called suicide because there are always there when someone is trying to do get hurt. When Andreas cuts off his finger (more out of curiosity than by accident), transport him to the apartment. Finger regrow. When a man tries to kill himself under the wheels of subway - without success - men dressed in identical carry it home to your partner. Wounds fade away. When some other unfortunate jumping from windows and poking fun at the fence, so successfully that flow from the intestine, only interested in the service of suicide clean up the body. What happens to the corpse's next? It is not known. But it's hard to believe the possibility of committing suicide, effectively.

seems to me that the interpretation according to which after the death of Andreas went to the afterlife, is not entirely misguided. But then what to choose? Dystopian certainly treat this reality as a little less hellish hell? Whether as a purgatory - while remaining within the Christian tradition? And maybe just as a paradise, where - as Zbigniew Herbert - "social order is stable, rational and governments", and if so, and happiness Forever ( sic ) is included in the package of benefits post-mortem? Maybe the place to which Andreas hit, it is mandatory paradise from which no appeal? Paradise, which in no way can be shaped and adapted to their needs, because it is unchangeable and - more important - have always perfect?

If the trail is right, the services of a suicide dressed in gray only lacks wings.

Piotr Dobrowolski: SF film in mainstream movie history (excerpts)

From paper to digital decorating show

impossible to meet in everyday life with what is unusual, seen in the finite infinite
understand what is beyond the understanding, and on the surface to find what lies deep.

carrying out its bold scientific fantasies in a modest studio in Montreuil, near Paris, Georges Méliès probably could have guessed that his Trip to the Moon (1902), consisting of 330 hand-colored scenes, striking suggestiveness vision and boldness of the project, a few decades will be a reality, breaking thus far invincible barrier of earth gravity. Méliésowska impression, however, was not only a personal desire to rise above mediocrity.

Looking 260 m video was a response to the human desire to know, to penetrate the mind, in fact, incomprehensible and mysterious. Reflected in the technical achievements, even exceeding the threshold of real opportunities presented at the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900. The turn of the nineteenth and twentieth century was greeted with enthusiasm, and in the cool of the new century felt was the announcement of transformation and upheaval. A new era of unlimited confidence in the wake of technical progress, the early age of radically changing the face of the economy and society. Belief in the salutary power of technology and invention, not only inspired the minds of scientists, alchemists, and various sorts of charlatans. Uncharted areas of science, futuristic feeling it was just fantastic to diagnose. (...)

Using the terminology of analysis, can be defined as literature fantastic as a starting product for the synthesis of this, as we shall see, non-uniform film. * Novels by Orson Welles and Jules Verne for the fast-growing industry has become a great director's inspiration. John Baxter believes is true SF film an intellectual impossibility of not finding between cinema and literature too many similarities, but also sees the roots of this phenomenon is not in a visionary literature of the nineteenth century, which is the primary inspiration for fiction, but in a more distant forms and ; views, in the medieval fantasy world, the era of masks, and Grand Guignolu morality play.

Despite the various complexities, which will be discussed further, the cinema not SF stroniło of adaptation, which is reflected even discussed Trip to the Moon based on the novels of Verne and Wells ** first men on the moon . Méliès success encouraged other artists to do likewise, and therefore realized films thematically similar, and although they were not original or innovative, it is sufficiently numerous to interesting science fiction recipients, thereby creating specific needs and expectations of the team (...).

argument for transparency will use a model of timing and distribution of SF for years, but refer to that is with a certain distance, because each is periodization a matter of convention, depending largely on the individual investigator position. SF history can thus be differentiated into four lead periods:
1) year from 1898 to 1945 (from the first attempts at SF World War II);
2) years from 1946 to 1967 (First post-war boom SF);
3) years from 1968 to 1976 (an artistic ennoblement of species);
4) years from 1977 to 1984 (the second big bang.)

early years were filled with attempts to subjugate the workshop, when the author learned about the mechanisms and ways to move the script to the screen, so as to make it to the viewer the most likely. However, before this camera gain momentum, the cinema does not come out in the tissue outside the trials and tribulations of the average plot bread eater. Abstract worlds abound often grotesque battles, romances disputes, and not being able to abandon the Earth conventions of melodrama, playing, and even śmieszyły.

(...) until its original achievement is the work of Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927) - surprisingly huge swing, mature and advanced for its time technique.

For a long period of silent cinema SF was still in the hands of nineteenth-century optimism, cognitive trust in the powers of science, the forces of progress and transformation techniques. Breeding ground for fantasy films were primarily the then gains laboratories. In the implementation of even project the flight to the moon with the aid of specialists, so that the launching of the rocket scene seemed most likely. After the frustrations caused by the great war and the great crisis, slowly, the broad mass of western society, rising from many a fall, a growing optimism. SF and its interest in the proposals is understandable, was in fact a response to the rapid and hardly predictable changes. As far as making progress, however, also notes the negative aspects of the phenomenon later called stechnicyzowaniem society ( Holocaust from the east 1930, Maurice Elvey). For the first time resulted in the fantasy horror film from the border, using the topic and the mad scientist's monstrous animal, as a signal of the coming era of doubt and fear ( 1933 King Kong, Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schodsacka). (...)

As he wrote Marek Haltof, SF has become a document of the era, a testimony to the moral doubt in a hidden order, restless waiting for the collapse, which did not really start the way predicted. The movie penetrate the political overtones, echoes reverberate taken at the highest levels of military decisions. But not so much fiction deals with the interpretation of human suffering as expressed general concern about the future and the consequences of the progress of scientific thought.

The first was George Pal. He financed the production of Destinantion Moon ( Destination Moon 1950) by Irving Pichel, and commercial success that gained film aroused appetites of the other authors. Slowly fantasy travels outside the U.S., finding a favorable climate development in England, Italy, France and Japan. It is also worth reminding The Day the Earth Stood Still ( Day the Earth Stopped 1951) Robert Wise, where the subject is the visit of Foreign coming to Earth with a warning from total disaster, if the intellectual elite of our world are not stop the senseless arms race and to improve methods of killing. Theme indeed widespread. (...)

meetings with strangers in (...) there are also a mystical element. Scene contacting people who came to the place of landing space vehicle third degree relatives meetings (1977) Steven Spielberg reveals the human yearning for the miraculous survival need, something that is not within the empirical bounds. However, foreign visits are not always optimistic. Przerysowanymi also scared the cruelty of torture scenes, deactivation of the mind and the extermination of the body. Scenarios invent on the spot with ease hypnotist endowed with the ability insight into the human soul and its deepest recesses, urabiając operated subconscious like clay, incomprehensible shapes of merge, saying loudly human fear of annihilation and depersonalized. Films like Invasion of the Body Snatchers ( Body Snatchers 1956) or The Brain Eaters ( brain eaters 1958), discover the range of possibilities not only for the Jungian and Freudian psychologists. The context is much broader, and the accompanying climate of terror reveals the eternal archetypes, primordial fear of evil, or as they like other researchers, prior to disguise enemy, which in the western psychosis was the Soviet Union, red tide of communism wypruwająca man ruthlessly with any manifestation of free thought and individuality, destroys any prey belonging to a collectivity. If the purpose of invaders from outer space is not a mental mangle and perfectly controlled lobotomy, it's certainly a massive global assault and destruction of all forms of living, like unrestricted travel barbaric, in which the size of damages overwhelm the most frightening nightmares.

How vivid are still similar concerns and how a need to unite humanity in a common effort to push their snobbish prejudices, weaknesses, regional fanatyzmów and petty motives, we could find out by participating in a crazy pyrotechnic image of Roland Emmerich Indepedence Day ( Independence Day, 1996). The film, which broke all records of audience, surpassed all expectations, earning seven days a magic sum of one hundred million dollars. That does not even reach Spielberg and his Jurassic Park , who needed two days more to reach the summit kasowości. The U.S. market Independence Day in three weeks grossed $ 200 million (these are movies that even those three weeks they are unable to survive on the screens). No other European Director has not done (...), from now on all cash movies will be compared to the Independence Day .

incredible achievement Emmerich actually thrives on the skilful trawestowaniu borrowings and such reinterpretacjom conventions so that they can be revived in a new costume, updating again under changed realities. Awakening of cosmic monster, and to recall the beast is not a consequence of conflicting political currents, as it did forty years ago, but awareness is still the world's existing divisions and hostile military camps. Coincidence, Independence Day is especially clear in the United States, as it is not accidental that the initial best efforts repel the attack ruthless aggressors from the universe ends, the total defeat of ground forces. Only by joining forces, cunning, bravery and tenacity makes it a truly American style of invaders oppress blunt, ask a devastating blow, our peaceful motives ignorującym aliens. Many critics see the film, Emmerich fulfill the American dream of collectivity, the unification of efforts to repair the world. People in the face of threats from outside forces abandon their selfish goals to rescue the common good. This space can be a tyranny of the general public uświadomiłaby smallness and pettiness of private interests, although it is possible that both could be the driver of low behavior - treason, espionage and sabotage. There is another reason that the same way as in the fifties, opened a factory in aliens. Namely, the real faith of the people in extraterrestrial civilizations. (...)

saw apocalyptic twilight land of civilization, irreversibly disappearing cultural achievements, invading Martians. What still surprises us a fantastic movie? 50s This not only torn from the subconscious of a foreign topic. Nuclear Age marked by the stigma of Hiroshima is concerned, creates fear giving up nothing to alleviate. Makes us get up and look out the window every day, asking if all hell has already started. Do you fall asleep, because who knows, it might surprise us, even before the atomic blast have time to recover. Numerous images of total nuclear annihilation seems to carry a warning, teach, admonish, restores the human value Humanities, to snatch him from the torpor and vividly aware of the danger. Most outstanding achievements of the entire cycle of American films are the poetics of the atom: the Beach (1959) Stanley Kramer and Dr. Strangelowe (1964) Stanley Kubrick. The apparent despair and helplessness in the face of irrational forces hampered the originality and artistry of film, "atomic" heading towards the document or reportage (The War Game 1966, Peter Watkins). For outstanding work in this matter is considered Factory immortal (1961) Joseph Losey.

Another harbinger of repressed instincts and repressed fears are gigantic monsters, antediluvian reptiles, giant lizards and mutated forms of flora and fauna - the result of prohibited experiments and nuclear radiation. The procession that started by Japanese cinema, continued march towards a more and more new capital cities, laid waste every turn encountered building, becoming a thinly disguised symbol of anarchy, war and destruction. The whole machinery and apparatus polygons the world focused on one hated rat. Concrete form in his act of rebellion, in a stream of destruction poderwanego to fight the animal. By killing the beast collectively and publicly directing a film scene change was a magical ritual of burning effigies, the transfer of risk in inaccessible areas have consciousness. The enemy was driven, disposed of in the celebration of the melting uncomfortable and traumatic memories in the shape of the surreal vision of Boris Vian.

Patented several ways to induce latent Mesozoic time in the depths of the monster. Everything depended on the then prevailing trends in science and przeczuwanych hazards, which is fantastic on-screen was a great listener, reinforcing even small signals. The scenario is simple: to awake and upset creature rising from the ocean waves, volcanic basalts, moves in a trance in the city, crushing all powerful paws, tearing and ripping traction network of iron railways. Of course, after a while, everything returns to normal. Monster inactivates another reptile cited to support, massive attack troops, deceit, or find a weak point in the shell is viewed differently Basilisk. Rhône - Bird Death (1956) Inoshiro Honda Monster Invasion (1965) Honda duel monsters (1966), Ebirah - a monster from the deep (1966) Junya Fukuda, Son of Godzilla (1968) Fukuda, Godzilla vs. Hedora (1971) Yoshimitsu Banno are just a few of the titles of movies sygnujące dragons, pterodaktyli and the whole cosmic zoo, which landed on Earth in the bazaar. Significant feature of the cinema of that time is the lack of presentation of film utopia - Arcadia embedded into it man. In the 50s and 60 greatly increased social distrust of technical revelations of the twentieth century. Science, making ever larger discoveries, both raised concerns about the consequences of the use of its prey, which, as history shows, does not always serve the right purpose.

Scientific Revolutions, posed questions about the limits of our humanity. Have we machines? Can we explain the true nature of homo sapiens ? Could he have lost the relevant features in the unnatural selection of the strongest units, focused on the survival and success in a world of confusion and chaos, controlled by a few specialists in cybernetics and molecular biology, and carry the relevant characteristics of the old human nature and its propensity to love, what remained of the androids? Perfectly mimic the artificial creations of man, with similar mechanisms of emotional learning and modify their behavior depending on from the experience acquired and the real demands of the situation, endowed with the contractual freedom, which most often turns against the creator, or programmed operation after a specified period of self-destruction - raise the awareness of existence.

That is masterfully depicted in the vision of 2019 Los Angeles, where the landscape of the metropolis of lights sparkling skyscrapers shrouded Vangelis music evokes a vague feeling of nostalgia, longing for the old ziemskością. Blade Runner (1981) Ridley Scott, because of the question, belonging the few successful images, where the hero is a robot or replikant, moves way to provide artificial "being" emotionally responsive to the likeness of man. Oddly, it is they umiłowały force in a short time getting to know its meaning - a value in itself. Rebelling against the man to programs struggling to wrest the end of the mystery of life extension. Four years is far too little to meet any variety and flavor of the time, but long enough to appreciate its uniqueness.

Ridley Scott originally compromises the human hero, drawing a curve and line it with black. Unable to maintain a healthy reflex, włóczącego the streets, bars and markets filled with the faces of all the continents. Blade Runner The title character is an unscrupulous, police machinery of extermination aimed at capturing the rebel survivors of a planet - some of androids who have arrived on Earth after a prescription for longer life and inhibition of apoptosis. Rehabilitates the human love, but the final of his ennoblement is set using the Replicants. The first of these will be a woman, which falls in love with Hunter, the second leader of the rebels. He is the last sequence of the film will save lives his niedoszłemu wiszącemu killer on one hand on the edge of the abyss to him realizing what is really a survival instinct and the thirst for life. White dove released from the infected hand lethal android shrinkage is the perfect symbol - the intellectual reflection on the freedom of being and autocreation.

duplicates of human organisms Invasion of the Body Snatchers Peter Kaufmann presents the philosophy of emptiness, happiness, apparent in the non-existence and nieodczuwaniu. Strange egg-shaped creations extracted from the overgrown night, enveloped in a sticky swamp mist and put on military vehicles to reach the hospital, where in the process of transformation, sterilizing the interior of the victims at an alarming rate create identical copies. After being worn empty human shell crumbles to dust, and the revitalized replica moves in pursuit of the survivors even real people. This shall be a peculiar exchange of species, a less perfect form of denial by better adapted. Someone from the outside in a similar scenario would be very hard to believe. Significantly for Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Blade Runner - the action and tension on the substrate is born of emotion. Reaction tests reveal who is a copy, and who pretends to be human. The Invasion ... survivors must learn one thing - control of emotions (cosmic intruders are morally depleted). This significant fear of losing the one true distinguishing feature of humanity, the feelings - warns it seems that the very important and dire consequences result. If we do not his actual face, their unique human condition, cease to be the ones who we are or what to serve. But it will not have the last word cinema of anxiety. (...)

In Fahrenheit 451 Francois Truffaut creates a reality of mass culture, in which the blurred contours of the human personality in the overwhelming television programs. A constant stream of images flowing from niegasnących TVs endless contests, games, Glass family is bringing everything to the generally accepted scheme, bursts into the deepest recesses of human intimacy couples without giving respite. TV creates a unified, one-dimensional characters, devoid of character and personality. This fear seems to be not only characteristic of the era of microprocessors - is inscribed on the permanent basis in our mental landscape, constantly disturbing and provoking reflection.

undoubtedly the greatest achievement in the field of fantastic film is unprecedented in the message Stanley Kubrick - 2001 Space Odyssey (1968), the work artistically SF ennobling, elevating the genre to the level of expression and the original material. To the creation of the Odyssey contributed and technical achievements of cinema, and the progressive knowledge of the cosmos, and it provided a much needed freedom to operate the film means, unfettered vision of extending far into the cosmic space, express strong emotions through the technical workshop. Not coincidentally the title of the image associated with Kubrick Odyssey of Homer, and mythological wanderings of Odysseus, the main character. Huge infinite immensity of space fanning its probably hides many secrets. At the same time a man realizes how miserable it is infinite specks of interstellar dust. (...)

mystical space is not in itself, however, nothing of magic, and only superficially in the starry sky brings the aesthetic emotion of the degree of security. Humanity as if they feared the vengeance of the universe for him to wrest his secrets for encroachment on the stars and moon. Still SF anxiously watching the hero in the blue vault. A new wave of SF grows on the ground for real social unrest. What happens if you run out of air, what happens if people multiply uncontrolled masses, if you completely destroy the natural environment, cultural elite, feeling, when everything we eat, and depleted natural resources of fossil fuels? There will be a big fuel crisis, as it presents a series of Mad Maxie G. Miller? Or is it total anarchy and the destruction of enemy tactics Neolithic, which really does not owe anything - appropriated only a piece of food? And can we get back in the form of regressive evolution of cave-dwelling form and we will return to the apes? SF film was probably the best expert ills of civilization and the X-ray machine with the skill of an outbreak of disease prześwietlał social tissue.

theme of irrational aggression and terrible ways of discharge also appears in the film Rollerball (1975) Norman Jewison. However, while most interesting work is the loudest Clockwork Orange (1971) Stanley Kubrick made into a novel by A. Burgess. The terrifying future of juvenile gangs, destructive, and violate rabujących. Here is a unit of the title A Clockwork Orange, subject to manipulation, humiliation, odzierania of humanity, a theatrical puppet pulling the strings behind the curtain concealed by a mysterious master of puppets.

Perhaps lawful society and the justice system with the problem of aggression, rape, assault and violations of Human rights can not handle ever, at least in a satisfactory and definitive manner. In this field also looked for solutions - such as refrigeration units as particularly dangerous, subjecting their operations by cutting the brain areas responsible for the hatred and the desire to fight, in more recent times, creating a holographic prison or provided somewhere in the distant, cold cosmic space penal centers. School outcasts, resocjalizujące colonies, superhuman work in the quarries of Mars, mandatory participation in the intergalactic, particularly dangerous missions - are examples of scenarios.

Lem report, however, a vote of no confidence against the laboratory practice of producing copies of happy, devoid of ills, infirmities and evil. It is still artificial systems, and ethically questionable manipulation of the human mind. Here's not quite naturally, is not the result of the process of coming to the principles of social coexistence, tolerance and respect for private philosophy. Although the U.S. attempted to restore public habitual violators performing the castration surgery dewiantach and with the help of surgical instruments to replace the pathology of questionable standard, but quickly abandoned the practice.

the pessimistic vision of the future even mention Neither grass (1970) Cornel Wilde - picture of rampant population explosion, a crowd and fighting to the death of the smallest piece of land suitable for cultivation. Nightmare plan to reduce the population shows a reduction Action (1973) David Miller, medium Green (1973) Richard Fleischer talks about the horror of practices budzących processing human remains - the lack of sufficient quantities of food - the food substitutes.

So far weekdays hot climates will change the atomic temperature of the globe after signing 1 VII 1968, the NPT nuclear weapons and Salt talks, launched in 1969. This slow speed for a moment of apocalyptic machinery. On Earth and in space there will be relaxation, relaxing in the eye of the storm.

so far talked mainly about fantasy cinema West and its achievements. Scenarios SF socialist blocks implemented slightly differently, not only because of smaller budgets, resources or facilities. Was affected, which is rather obvious, the prevailing ideology and the pressures of leading filmmakers picking communist realism, and not contaminated by delusions Americanism. Hence, few but ambitious in the mainstream of philosophical and reflective, the illusion of dreamlike impressions. This group should be even Solaris Andrzej Tarkowski (1972), based on a novel by Lem with the same title. In these types of films adventures in outer space and encounter with the mysteries are not a pretext to carry out "performance technology", but an opportunity to conduct in-depth analysis of the motives of human action and to assess its ethical and moral attitudes. (...) Tarkowski in typical fashion treat space travel as an excuse to reflect on the attitudes of moral and human responsibility.

unfinished is a fantastic image of the Polish Andrzej Zulawski On the Silver Globe. Based on the novel by Jules *** Zulawski could become a very interesting film, but - although the lack of attention from the authorities Zulawski just could not complain - supervising minister was so close that it stopped shooting photographs and destroyed the scenery and costumes.

Years 1977-1984 and modern times is indeed an unprecedented expansion of fantasy. It will become a dream debut for young directors start climbing the steep stairs in Hollywood. But is this unprecedented eruption of flood cinemas and video rentals something new? Is not this blatant tracing of the comic, treatment of known motifs and a repeat of history? Do you have anxiety disappears, and if not, what fears come up again and who will come to the rescue?

Further transformations of the fantastic cinema will resemble known motifs. Established earlier in the relatively stable patterns will be for the film score, SF support and closer than the hues of the original compositions. This will be a reinterpretation of memories of space hostile to, the dangers domination of man by a far-reaching technological advances. Objectification emotional spheres. Revived the fear of nuclear annihilation, falling comet, aggression, dehumanization, loss of individuality, robots, cloning, dangerous, law breakers genetic experiments of nature. (...)

Perhaps he was right John Baxter, said: "For a long time, we believe that horror movies are encrypted representation of national psychosis, from which you can learn many interesting things about the cultural motivations, including However, the true meaning of the film SF is still waiting for a thorough diagnosis. " It is difficult to rule on the basis of dozens of spools of commercial products overall failure of science fiction film and its bias in all areas of penetrating reality. As we shall see later, sometimes things are deeply hidden and visible on the surface, and what is funny, it might be a serious and significant not only for the fairy child's imagination and mysterious world of magic and read with understanding by the shaman, but for everyone Who wants to see.

* Most probably it comes to Herbert George Wells (1915-1985), writer; not about Orson Welles (1866-1946), director (Prov. UD).
** Wells (Prov UD).
*** The author was George Moon trilogy - not Julius - Zulawski (Prov. UD).

Nice Noise review on Alternative Music

THIRD I - "Nice Noise" (2011)

for the fifth year and through its eighteen Published, Third and exists as a separate entity to ovdasnjoj music scene. This unusual musical entity consisting of two members, Nenad and Pedja. In his latest release, "Nice Noise ', Third entity and continues its evolution of ambient experimental music. The 11 new compositions, Third and sent us through a black hole in the distant future, and gives an insight into how the music might sound to some few hundred years.
compositions are based on the principle of atonality. That is, their melody and harmony can not concentrate on a specific tonal center, or rather, a basic sound. But by repeating the high and low volume alteration, relocated its field of operation in the subsonic between. The effect of this alternate increasing and decreasing the volume is to create an atmosphere hiperambijentalne. That bringing the listener into a vegetative state, builds a strong hypnotic effect. Furthermore, the compositions are free of rhythm and percussion elements. I live solely on the previously mentioned sound alteration (decreasing volume and increase the tone scale), and many sound samples of infiltration. Which have a role in creating a comprehensive sphericity and the compactness of the individual pieces. Also, in its activities, the composition passes through various stages of the strength and intensity. In doing so, they appear as a meditative sound mantras, minimalist ambient passages and irritating throbbing synthetic sound escalation. Metamorphosis of the previously mentioned states has been slow and some songs are very long build. And often, almost neprimijetno entrance into each other. This gives a feeling that the whole concept album by a comprehensive principle. Through its melodies, the songs evoke a metaphysical way various themes, such as: search for himself ("Where am I"). Or raising the sound life ("Hear us squeak"). Transcendental impression march through the streets of the crowd ("February March"). Sound and morphological "Horse gives birth to a Fly." Minimalistic dark "Heavy Metal". Turbulent "Sewer live report. Psychedelic "Mushrooms are growing like Fungus." Short, but disturbing "Nightmares again. Orbital "Reaching Toward the Light". And two, very long apocalyptic "Cities in Desolation Part I & Part II."

album "Nice Noise" certainly is not for everyone's ears. I'm sure there are many who do not prefer this kind of music. But he is a kind of door, through which passing through them, allowing the listener somewhat different view of music as a means of expression. Door, through which he can refer you to a mysterious musical journey, and whose borders only on can order the grasp.

Quite often, reading the various texts okołoutopijne, I have a big problem deciding on this, to which genologicznej pigeonhole a particular title to move - hence probably my little sympathy for the appellants, in fact, terms such as "okołoutopijne " , " okołodystopijne " , " quasi-fantastic " etc. When Miranda Anthony Lange of 1924 I opened a drawer in the head, however, from the outset: Miranda a utopia because without doubt, but there is no popular technological utopia, feminist or Organic; Miranda is the only Polish (or at least the only one with whom I had the opportunity yet to deal with) utopia esoteric! I must admit that the occult in any form is not a field that could ever be interested in and where I could have (perhaps wrongly, do not judge me) the relationship other than the full distance of amusement, however - perhaps because of this very exotic esoteric - with interest read this written before almost a hundred years ago, quite niepokaźnych sized book.

Miranda is simply ideal realization of a utopian scheme. We therefore there isolated from the world of the island, on which way better than the ordinary societies people live much better than ordinary mortals. In Miranda latter aspect is wyrazistszy than earlier utopias - those islanders are wspanialsi from the common man not only morally, in a sense, they are at a higher level of evolution. Clearly arises from the association here Wellsowskimi People like gods of 1923, where the characters go to an alternative world where people are ahead in the development of thousands of years of its guests. Island in the book, Lange - interestingly - this place, which he described in Sun City Tomasso Campanella: the city, which hit the hero, John elevated ( nota bene : cute name), a City of the Sun, after many, many years. Society is under the direction of three ministries: Love, Wisdom and Power. More important than these is only one man: the wise Metaphysics. Traditionally: the state government decides on development, training and education of children and young people, and when you get older - to assign them to a partner or partners. But as it happens in utopias - and what must admit, I like them the most - even in this world appear superidealnym niedobrzy dissenters, who have the audacity to disagree with the views wpajanymi them from birth. And you are so disagree.

Jan elevated even in Europe, at the beginning of the war zwieruchy (I mean big war, the story begins in 1915), was interested in the occult. He participated in the secret sessions " psychic " , during which the medium - woman, Miranda title - transformed his human form in astral form (and here comes my lack of occult training - in the tooth do not know what it is with stars common): a much more beautiful than mere corporeal shell. What was the surprise hero and joy when, after arriving in a town on the island, it turned out that all the adults in the Astral - that is, in some sense superhuman: sweeping the air at will, gifted with sight and hearing far beyond the capabilities of human pożywiający up specifically for this purpose the prepared tablets. Unlike the Europeans are making similar attempts, they led by a substance called " nirwidium " to crystallize his astral form, which then no longer dematerializowała. All the boys and eighteen All fifteen girls had to undergo a special rite to call and crystallize his astral form and get rid of - thus, of course - all sorts of inappropriate land instincts and vices.

Nobody in this society a sentence of one not ask , individuals resistant isolates from the healthy social fabric. Overt rebels fought with, however, is very beautiful, it must be admitted, because through the exchange of arguments in the open discourse: it is essentially a behavior so wonderfully correct that actually - completely utopian.

Well, as you can see, I can not get rid of the slightly patronizing tone. Fortunately, I did not, neither does not oblige me, no institution to pursue scientific ethos, or for forced pseudoobiektywizm distance and nobody did not pay. So, back to Miranda : like a terribly annoying is the climate of the Young Poland movement of rotating tables, but they probably never cease to fascinate me, the diversity of ideas on the perfect worlds. Therefore, I am pleased that and he knew.

not recommend Miranda all, I would recommend Miranda enthusiasts. Passionate Young Polish literature, a passion psychic seances - whatever they may be - and, of course, a passion utopia. Let everyone else can forgive yourself.

Nice Noise review on

THIRD I: Nice Noise (Raw Ambient Pieces) (Nihilthrone, 2011)
imagination of abstraction and reality. Imagination works 100%. Another candidate for best album of the year, at least in the primeval experimental fahu.
A good part of it as Throbbing Gristle made during his najznamenitijeg period since 1976. to 1981., I presented the Third in this half hour. Genesis P-Orridgea and Peter Christopherson then really was not easy to understand, especially when they knew saw some concerts per hour with an ad hoc topics, but today this kind of music has itekakve purposes. Third I have not made one half-hour composition, but 11 of them, but it all boils down to common sculpture excellent conceptual unified under the name 'beautiful noise (raw ambient pieces). "
highlight of the album are the last two themes, "Cities in Desolation Part I", and "Cities in Desolation Part II" at 7 minutes long compositions that evoke the apocalyptic landscape, the desolation of the towns where there is not a living soul. Just hit themes victim settlements in Japan after the earthquake and tsunami that has befallen the nuclear disaster, although they were not intended as a tragic epitaph, but the coincidence coincided with the period in which they are declared.
Otherwise, all the music and sounds on this album are in the abstract linking of reality and imagination through the concept of subjective perception. Third I do not go into banality and prevarication, but given their different artistic vision, for someone might be innocent and preoccupations, but as such they show a remarkable creative achievements in the rank of the psychedelic, real and unreal. Imagination is the 'essence' that is essential in this case and not based on dryness, but in a clean artistic reasoning. With time the Third and reaffirmed their high criteria separating from all those 'bad' music, which is not clear why the bad (bad from the Blue Orchestra, ha-ha-ha).
I know that people do not get it this kind of music, ranging from T. Gristle and Coil, and that they do not understand why it is there because they believe that what they think, but I really have a Third 'third eye' which is not a mysterious cult but a collection of top artistic achievements.
listen and appreciate.

Referral For Real Estate Letter

Margaret Szpakowska: Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz's worldview. Catastrophism (excerpts)

Witkacy Portrait officer
Playing with fire is nice for the first burns. Witkiewicz was able to (...) to capture a significant tendency of intelligence to the responsible use too radical or revolutionary phraseology. So much is equity in reprymendzie given by Athanasius Sajetana Tempe, the future dictator of the State niwelistycznego "Lubiłbyś the revolution of the box to look like the ground floor show - even better, to make it uinscenizowane by these new quasi-public artists who have everything they want to do pseudoartystyczną crib: the rally, meeting, with street shootings, even the work itself. Idiocy of this idea jumps into your eyes - and yet some serious people still wonder about the possibility that "(PJ 157). For thrill-seeking is - after all - fun. Revolution and is a matter quite seriously.

inauthenticity is accompanied by a completely authentic heroes of the tragedy of accidents, a continuous string of violent social upheaval, coups, military and puczów popular revolts, in conjunction with the antics and kabotyństwem Witkiewicz a picture of history turns out to be pure macabre. The dramatic explosions, short-term stabilization, acts of terror, the constant turmoil of the masses - all these convulsions a disintegrating culture are the subject of interest of the Crown and the narrative fabric of literary works most famous.

In Farewell to Autumn make a turn: General Bruizora coup, coup carried out by the Socialist-chłopomanów and niwelistyczna revolution Sajetana Tempe. The Shoemakers coup Sajetana Tempe (another) coup faszyzujący Jozek Tempe and the rise of Gnębona Puczymordy. The only exit wield power after the triumphant victory of the revolution PPL Gnębonem Puczymordą (again, probably different from that of the Shoemakers ) at the helm, at the same time, however, there are two warring parties notoriously emzetfetystów and deteków, how they are fighting over - unfortunately known, because the continuation Witkiewicz's novel is not written. In Insatiability sovereign Syndicate National Salvation, and an unofficial dictatorship - General Sloboluchowicz, provocative novel, in the course of the coup, this struggle for political power so much it is irrelevant that in the end we all die as a result of external invasion. In Maciej Korbowa and Bellatrix game takes place between the parties, trade unionists and Centralists; in ONYCH League comes to power, the Absolute automatism, in Mother and Water Hen end are massive riots ; minor coups and political assassinations are not worth even enumerate. There is also no reason to as it's traced back to a litany of policy, even if it were possible to establish the chronology of events, there is little that could have arisen from this. Simply collapsing world culture for centuries formed and, consequently, its distribution has continued without interruption, "the chronic, dull as chronic tuberkuliczne peritonitis, continuous social revolution" (PJ 215.)

sophisticated ataxia following after a succession of explosions is not at all a matter of accidental. On the contrary, absurdity, confusion, lack of governance have been highlighted here on purpose, Witkiewicz did everything possible to cast our eyes. To this end, it seems, used the same names for different types of leaders of the revolution: that in order to emphasize the chaos. His position can be explained in two ways. First, emotionally: zrozpaczonemu hard to believe that what is the source of his sufferings, is in reality a deep, hidden meaning, providing a history of anguish is willing to consider as fundamentally absurd, rather than enforcing some hidden outside the "cunning of reason." Coming to terms with reality, the award because of history - would be apostasy, an act of resignation from the date values. But this translation is not the only ones. Witkiewicz had - on the basis of his theory of culture - quite reasonable to suppose that in cases where birth and watching the further development provided, no order should not be inferred. As long as the story was a work of outstanding and intelligent individuals, pursuing through it one way or another your goals - you could see in her order, since then, however, when the engines of historical changes took crazy crowds - in the course of events had also lost all rationality. (...)

for the coming revolt of the crowds [Witkiewicz] looked at from the perspective of his characters - "former people", the identity with which in the end poczuwał himself, and for whom the revolution was synonymous with the ultimate end their world, their class and their culture. The only good side of the revolution could be the aspect of spectacular. One could hope that for a while it is able to provide such experiences which break the boredom hopeless pursuit of unreachable values, the one who is directly threatened, usually under the influence begins to notice some fear, the sense in her, no matter how empty and barren and life. So Witkiewiczowscy heroes often express the desire that this, finally approaching the end was inevitable, hence the desire for a disaster in the previously cited Bazakbala expression.

Quickly, however, turned out to be generally that the expected strong impression had by no means waking metaphysical experiences. The secret revelation of Being is not born under the influence of panic. Witkacy Insatiability writes: "It's difficult to find such an abstract, metaphysical element in the roaring jedenastocalowych howitzer battery. The real cause of its survival, rather revolution, acting in immediate danger, it is not able to provide disinterested in contact with the absolute "(N2: 222). For that very reason revolution - contrary to the hopes - can not make real art. Firstly, because no one works in a paroxysm of fear or under the influence of terror, and secondly - it is too massive, too mundane, too crowded animal element. It is after all the work the crowd. In Farewell to Autumn Bazakbal says: "Maybe a few Russians in the background of their revolution has created something almost new - there is in Russia, the material is no longer content rhymed, propaganda leaflets - healed with the form, which is like a living germ layers broke the old złożysk" (PJ: 158).

Artistic Revolution infertility is not the most dangerous. From the viewpoint of "former people" - except the constant personal danger, of course - the revolution reveals the characteristic of much potworniejszą. Shock, revolutions, terror and horror nothing can not change, and the sensitivity to them quickly waning. The revolution turns out to be just boring.

Revolutions in Witkiewicz's dramas and novels are presented, moreover, very uniformly. It is significant here is that most simply take place behind the scenes, are something entirely external to make up the campaign events, they are blank, featureless force, a sort of cosmic catastrophe. So are shown very sparingly - as the sound of gunfire, as the noise and screams from the street - mostly in the lounge, which gathered the heroes. Because the characters are rarely Witkiewicz revolutionaries, but if they have it would happen - either provocateurs or thirsty thrill, "former people" social position does their participation in the revolution is not predestined, but the author also focuses attention on the other, nierewolucyjnej side of their personality.

revolution for them is always a kind of anticipated, and indeed boring spectacle, and writer, and those to which he returns, they are only spectators of the spectacle, in a literary work is reproduced Witkiewicz what he repeatedly spoke of himself - that the revolution in Russia looked like a box (ND: 264). Yes, and now tells his readers to look: with chic cafes in the city "in Maciej Korbowa and Bellatrix, in the living room in the Palace Nevermore Water Hen, with resort villa in Farewell to Autumn. This choice is not the point of view, of course, without consequences for the same image: the living room through the window he sees only the "rabble" and senses of his cruelty and no one sees but neither the causes nor the internal organization of the armed flowing through the street crowds. It goes beyond the possibilities of understanding the resources available, "there were people, even when they are entangled in the course of events. Korbowski the Water Hen says, for example: "Let's go to the street. I like the atmosphere of upheaval. Nothing more fun, like swimming in a black sea of \u200b\u200bfrenzied mob "(D2: 61). Someone somewhere is fighting, someone builds a barricade, storming the prison, did not really know who or why, just know that this is a dangerous one. The crowd is cruel. Usually wants to kill someone or destroy something on fire. The butler announces in Maciej Korbowa : "Your Excellency - people are at the gate. Some of them want to blow up everything - others say they can not because [it] is a museum "(D1: 190). The crowd in Anonymous Work demands the death of leaders: "At the lighthouse! Hang! Hang! Hang both! At the lighthouse the entire government! Down with the priests! At the lighthouse Giers "(D2: 127). Workers at the Mother make the person of Leon "little lynching in the name of democracy collapses" (D2: 448). It is not even important, what it zrewoltowanym masses, is only known that after the victory prove to be cruel.

Some elements of this image Witkiewicz able to draw from his own observations: the sound of machine guns, six Sailors from Maciej Korbowa , maybe the scene in the courtyard of the prison in Anonymous Work . However, worker-revolutionary, not one of the crowd and not "be a man", but an independent literary figure, appears in his work probably only once. It Puzyrkiewicz Oleander, holding a bomb Scary Hyperworkoid of Shoemakers . Witkacy this figure actually built with only three elements. The first of them - a sense of injustice, but, importantly, personal injury: a memory torture and fourteen years in prison. -Mockingly cruel manipulation of the bomb, and indirectly the whole revolution are thus also a kind of personal revenge. The second component - a rhetorical tendency, because although all the characters Witkiewicz characterized them, but in the scene with Hyperworkoid is highlighted by the words of another character (Gnębon Puczymorda asks in despair: "Can not you even a moment to do without the lecture?" (D2: 580) and recorded in the stage directions by the appearance of the plate with the word "boredom." Finally, the third element - a relationship Hyperworkoid with those who actually govern on his behalf: devoid of any unusual banal bureaucrats, Companions of the X and Abramowskim. Continued Shoemakers was written before: the last part Farewell to Autumn.
In Farewell to Autumn said that the revolution "has become for some a mere pretext to end unnecessary to themselves and to anyone, but similar waste, of life" (PJ 215) . It is called the revolution "fun for the bored, barren waste latter category "(cf. PJ: 215). Permanence of bloody coups or directly applied terror are not able to restore the metaphysical feelings. Also turns out to be impotent in this respect, another form of power revolting masses: a dull and soulless bureaucracy. With such a bureaucracy is met Athanasius Bazakbal when full of good will return to the country where the party took power in the meantime niwelistyczna. Already on the way, writes Witkiewicz - "(...) he was amazed by almost crystalline order zrewolucjonizowanych Germany: work, work and work, angry, bitter, inevitable as the fire well-adjusted artillery battery. Wandering the empty museum Athanasius looked sadly on the works of old masters - it was a grave, life is full of former building, in such recent times, when the painting was still alive. Today, contact between what was and was interrupted by reality - images of withered flowers, even though as physical objects remained the same as before - they were no longer needed anyone "(PJ 407).

collapse of art, its utter unsuitability of the new world, accounted for only foretaste of what the new society could be expected. Further observations made by Athanasius, is even more depressing: "Some new people issuing out of the abyss in which they were hiding. But their faces were rather frightened of what was happening. There was none of that mood is not suspended like a rush, that feeling was there, a few kilometers, the border station - obtuseness, suppression, disbelief and fear - this was the general atmosphere, which felt at once " (PJ: 408).

" paid for all the three classes of the same, but the right to comfort was proportional to the quality of the carrying out of functions (...). At the station, tortured him, even though passports Tempego, unheard paperwork (on the border it was a folly in comparison with that). Finally, bear a terrible amount of securities went into the street " (PJ: 409). "Everywhere cards, signatures, stamps, photographs, inspection, and testing ględzenia. Pettiness of it all frightened Athanasius straight. He ate it for some paper and had to make so-called "statement of work" without this nothing - die of hunger. (...) What I saw was a little new, but so hopelessly dull, that at times seized with despair, and began to regret that he did not eat a tiger in the jungle ceylońskiej " (PJ 411). "He got cards for food, clothing, shoes and flat - at some robotnicznej family, district IV-s, Street Shabbat, an hour away from the office. He was stunned. And these faces, these faces, which he saw everywhere. "God! so is it will look like my action a social " - thought with despair " (PJ: 412-413).

similar picture of bureaucratic rule also appears in the output only where the omnipotence of the PPL is a guarantee of stability and stabilization of the totalitarian state. In leaving only also clearly than in the previous Farewell to Autumn , shown was the primacy of the state organization over the individual: in the novel later mass, crowd, people just - in nearly all disappear, and at the forefront of their branch is extended Institutional: " Somewhere in the distance shot - again, began to storm the emzetfetyści deteków arsenal. Nothing is - PPL is an institution absolutely necessary in every regime, Pe-Zet-Pepu not break anything. It saw no such fight, and reversed: statehood as such, brought to the summit, as a necessary function at the camera every social system (of course samorządzącej syndicalism in the sense of the organization of the workers was excluded), and vigorous intellectual development of all officers [...] - these were two lines of the guidelines of the demoniac, indeed, the institution '(JW: 64).

" The workers were good - wanted nothing more. Everyone had a house and garden, culture has a slightly withdrawn - drobnorolnictwo was a great counterbalance for industrialization. Really it was good, despite some technical primitive life, but why? Because capital as such, a private, completely taken by the throat. Ruled PPL - is the secret of everything " (JW: 101 - 102) . " Already many a prophet, what he wanted to save the rest of the people, from the idiotic samoomamienia serene, which represented the students-grandchildren Leon Chwistek, hung Citadel [...]. Someone ruled all of this for sure, but a mysterious ghost perhaps, because on the outside but with some lackeys, coarse gold and szamerowanych, there was not anyone " (JW: 126 - 127) .

In such a society, completely bureaucratized, zuniformizowanym and institutionalized, metaphysical experiences are, of course, even harder than that achievable in a world of decaying bourgeois culture in decline, which, however, some enclaves in the universal boredom and unsaturation gave sometimes find.

social upheaval is presented as dangerous not only for those who are its subject, or for those who are thrown overboard; also its most active participants in the revolution is not a metaphysical experience can provide. Indeed revolutions taking place either by a spontaneous outburst of the masses - they are so animal supremacy of the element, by definition metaphysical foreign states, or - more often - are the work of the representatives of the former ex-people
" , vainly seeking liberation from boredom in staged its bloody fun. This last topic is worth attention, because corresponds well with the views cited here for the philosophers, who study the phenomena of mass, the the role of agitators in the social upheavals. Well, the organizers and initiators of the revolution are not generally considered representatives of the crowd, but members of the elite, with these or other reasons for acting against its interests. Such a view is understandable, since the crowd is attributed to a factor only destructive, eo ipso precluding his organizational skills. That is at Le Bon, so it is in Gumplowicza and Kochanowski, so it is also - though not always - with the famous.

His revolutionary leaders, moreover, do not derive from the revolutions organized by them no real advantage: their hunger and boredom by the coup are not at all scattered, at most, lose the rest of his view of social illusions of what their activities are led. There are indeed - even for the mere fact of punching above mediocrity - a very dangerous situation. Instructive in this respect may be an example Sajetana Tempe, Shoemakers. As the leader of the revolution is achieved, it is true power, but is then overthrown by his own associates ["Not even you can not talk, as spaces. Discredits ino
revolution " (D2: 570) - says one of the Apprentices] and murdered, but also because the crowd needed some mythology, the same cynical Journeymen create it on the hero of the revolution, the flagship character of the new system .

You could be the next leader of the living, for you have wyprztykał prematurely by those damned papyri and Speak no neuter measure, it will be a sacred mummy, but the dead, cat! We then these remnants your zeskamotujemy forces and create a myth about you [...]
(D2: 571) - say Journeymen, and the echoes Hyperworkoid, indicating a freshly murdered corpse Sajetana as the "Great Holy recent revolution of the world, who gave us the way to the Supreme Law" (D2: 580) .

Witkiewiczowska revolution creates, moreover field action not only for the ideologues, but also for ordinary szalbieczy and bastards. All this, however, is devoid of significance. The course of the revolution or upheaval may be more or less bloody, or nuisance, the final result is always the same. Was the revolution described by Witkiewicz have bored "People were
" , careerists or ideowcy honest, the end result turns out to be always the same society, egalitarian, homogeneous, and characterized by the predominance of the spiritual element animalnego: weight, unable to survive or to create metaphysical culture in the old sense, and occupied only satisfying their livestock, biological desires. After a wave of upheaval, relapse, recourses time, uncertain stability bestial terror and explosions, after a long series of shocks, painful for the participants, but less important for the whole process - and finally comes the finale, a nightmare prophesied by katastrofistów: undifferentiated society. That which preceded his birth, is from the perspective of this final vision without much attention. As he says in Hardonne Insatiability "because whether you win or those [...] the result will be a: happy machine " (N1: 98) . Witkiewicz thought the same thing.

future happiness of society-the machine is ensured in two ways. As reduced to a purely biological level, it frees itself forever from any kind of metaphysical yearnings, which benefit so much trouble to representatives of the former elite. Egalitarianism and ensure the proper organization and adequate basic needs of all members of society. Accomplishment will see the vision outlined by the hero's departure One :
"I will promote now my biological materialism as the only possible philosophy of the official future of humanity, which must be imagined as some kind of communist anthill, with the maximum utilization of every man according to his capacity. The one who * will fulfill these functions, which will be the most talented, will be the happiest on the ground - it will be another in a maximum intensity. And at the same psycho-physical Research Institute will determine the type and quantity of chow, a dose of sleep, reading and the type of sexual intercourse - women will be determined appropriate by the competent authority - to regulate and everything will be all right " (JW: 73) .

These words were written after the huge success - even among us - Huxley's Brave New World, which translate may, moreover, the presence of such rare elements in the work of Witkiewicz and eugenic utopias of technological, represented here by the idea of \u200b\u200binstitutional control how the physiological needs. The essence of things, however, is such and such a utopian idea, but primarily on the ground of this negative attitude towards the future, animal happiness, based on a line through these values, which were expensive Witkiewicz, to spread biological dosytu mundane.

" But the future of society, society homogeneous and mrowiskowe, in which decisions will rest in the hands of the masses, representing just animalny element in humanity - a different hierarchy of values \u200b\u200btaken into account simply can not, moreover, there is no reason for doing. Ballast for the abandoned ancient culture is not one to miss. No longer will anyone feel its absence. In Anonymous Work Lopak, the leader of one of the next upheaval, he cried out: We do not need a government of priests under the guise of democracy collapses. We will create your own true self. We will bypass without parliament, organizing labor unions real lazy. We will create paradise on earth with no leaders and no job! My! A uniform, gray, sticky, stinking, terrible mass: The existence of a new individual, in spite of all metaphysics, based on the notion of the individual and the hierarchy! There are no individuals! Down with personality! Long live the one, single WEIGHT! Hurrah! " (D2: 126).

come a paradise on earth, but for the "former people
" will not place in it. In 1893, then eight, Stanislaw Ignacy Witkiewicz wrote comedy entitled Cockroaches: appeared in her "something gray " , which "began to approach " (D1: 51-54) .

can say further that all his work consistently take the same theme: more and more new stages approaching this gray. In view of the imminent prospects for an end to the culture remains the hands down katastrofiście: kasandryczne predictions are not able to reverse the course of history, are at the most calm one's own conscience. You can bear witness to the collapse of his own world - but this decline can not resist it. You can seek refuge - but without the hope that it will be effective. You can finally pull their views final conclusions - and so did Witkiewicz, najkonsekwentniejszy of the prophets of disaster, when in September 1939, the prospect of the coming "gray
" simply changed into reality. His was a desperate gesture, he was also in a sense, heroic. If the measure of value is the price to maintain these values decide to sacrifice - Witkiewicz gave witness to the dying culture that values \u200b\u200bwere significantly important for him. Delivery of what predicted in his writings, no longer wanted to see. Since the Book of Revelation began to comply, he preferred not to wait for its end.

Probably, it was an escape. But what else is left? After all, the only alternative would be - this or that - to accept. And he wanted to avoid this, perhaps it is simply disgusted. He was already too old, too tired to once again try to mock, to turn history moves in a grotesque joke. To reiterate what the thirteen years ago, wrote in the conclusion Farewell to Autumn :
" But it is good, all is well - What? - Can not you? It is good, damn it, and who say that no, it's him in the throat! " (PJ 450).
