DIM

BROWSING THROUGH HISTORY REVEALS AT LEAST ONE THING: PROGRESS IS NOT LINEAR. IT IS ALWAYS INTERRUPTED BY REGRESS. IN ADDITION, PROGRESS FOR ONE SIDE AT A GIVEN TIME DOES NOT MEAN THAT IT EXISTS AT THE SAME TIME FOR THE OTHER SIDE. THIS FACT SHOWS THAT DIM TIMES ARE GOING THROUGH A WHOLE SERIES OF PROGRESS FROM THE BEGINNING. SO IT COULD BE THE FACT THAT WE WILL ALWAYS HAVE ONE DARK COMPANION. DIM TELLS STORIES ABOUT THIS CONSTANT COMPANION FROM PAST TO PRESENT TO FUTURE AND ALSO, HOW TO DEAL WITH THE CHALLENGES IN THE CURRENT MACHINE VERSION OF WHAT WE CALL LIFE.




LETTER TO ALDOUS

THE INCREASING DIGITIZATION OF SOCIETY IS CHANGING PEOPLE'S SOCIAL QUALITIES AS WELL AS MAN'S RELATIONSHIP OF HUMANS TO MACHINES. SINCE EVERYONE ACCEPTS THIS CHANGE THROUGH HIS ACTIONS AND ACCELERATES THE TECHNOLOGICAL-DIGITAL DEVELOPMENT, THERE IS HARDLY TIME TO RECONCILE THE BENEFITS AND THE NECESSITY WITH THE DANGER AND THE RISKS OF THIS DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE THE SUBJECTS IN THIS LONG-TERM STUDY. DAMNED NOT KNOWING WHAT'S GOOD ABOUT IT, BUT VERY AMUSED BY THE SOMA THAT COMES FROM LOOKING AT SCREENS. ALDOUS HUXLEY COULD HARDLY HAVE IMAGINED IT, BUT SINCE HE COULD NOT FIGURE IT OUT, THIS COULD BE A SMALL LETTER TO HIM.


WHATABOUTISM

AN ABSTRACT REPRESENTATION OF THE TERM WHATABOUTISM AND THE ASSOCIATED CONFLICT AND FUTILITY OF THIS ARGUING TOOL. A CYNICAL DEFLECTION OF RESPONSIBILITY.


DEL

THE REJECTION OF CERTAIN EVENTS IN HISTORY IS A TYPICAL EXAMPLE OF AVOIDING RESPONSIBILITY OR TO BEAUTIFY A STATUS. ON THE OTHER HAND, THESE ACTIONS ALSO SHOW THE DISTORTION OF PEOPLE'S LIVES,
THAT WERE AFFECTED BY THESE ACTS. IN OTHER WORDS, ONE COULD SAY THAT THESE LIVES HAVE BEEN ERASED.
HISTORICAL REVISIONISM, TO CALL IT THAT, HAS BEEN REPEATEDLY EXPOSED AND USED AS A TREACHEROUS TOOL TO IMPROVE THE POLITICAL STANDING OF INDIVIDUALS OR EVEN COUNTRIES. THE USE OF THIS
ORWELLIAN TECHNIQUE CAN INCREASE THE RISK THAT INHUMANE ACTS WILL BE REPEATED. THEREFORE, THE SCIENCE OF HISTORY SHOULD BE INTENSIVELY PURSUED TO DISCOVER AND PUBLISH REVISIONISM.


THE SOCIAL DARWINIST PROGRAM

TAKING NATURE AS A ROLE MODEL AND LEARNING FROM IT CAN BE AN IMPORTANT WAY TO STAY CONNECTED TO OUR ENVIRONMENT. TO TAKE A THEORY THAT EXPLAINS HOW LIFE HAS EVOLVED AND TRIES TO JUSTIFY HUMAN BEHAVIOR INCLUDING ITS DEVASTATING CONSEQUENCES, IS A DANGEROUS AND ABSURD ENDEAVOR. THIS ACTION LED TO TERRIBLE INCIDENTS. EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT INCIDENTS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT. EVEN THOUGH
HUMANITY HAS ALREADY EXPERIENCED SOME OF THE WORST APPLICATIONS OF SOCIAL DARWINISM THAT STILL HAVE TO BE OVERCOME. WE STILL HAVE TO LIVE UNDER THE COAT OF IT.


DER BLINDER UHRMACHER

SINCE THE FORMATION OF VOCAL CORDS AND THE CONSTANT DEVELOPMENT OF COMPLEX LANGUAGE STRUCTURES
PEOPLE STARTED TELLING STORIES. WHILE SOME OF THEM ARE JUST AMUSEMENT OTHERS BECAME STORIES WITH DEEP-ROOTED VALUES. ONE OF THEM IS RELIGION, WHICH COULD BE THE STORY WITH THE MOST INTENSE INFLUENCE EVER. THE PROBLEM IS THAT PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT THIS IS STILL A STORY THAT THEY THEMSELVES HAVE DEVELOPED. RELIGION STRETCHED OUT ITS ARMS IN EVERY DIRECTION, AFFECTING EACH COVERED OBJECT FOR EXAMPLE, SOCIETY, SCIENCE AND EVEN A PROPONENT OF CAPITALISM WHEN ANALYZED FROM A MARXIST PERSPECTIVE. A BIG LIE IN TERMS OF SCIENCE IS THAT CREATIONISM OR CREATION SCIENCE TELLS US THIS LIFE ON EARTH IS SO COMPLEX THAT IT CAN ONLY BE MADE BY A CREATOR WITH AN INTELLIGENT DESIGN.
THEY IGNORE FACTS AFTER FACTS AND FEAR TO ACCEPT THAT THE EVOLUTION OF LIFE REQUIRES TIME, NATURAL SELECTION
AND GENETIC FACTORS AND THAT THE CONCEPT OF 'DER BLINDE UHRMACHER' HAS BROUGHT US TO BEAUTY COMPLEX ORGANISMS.


INDEFINITE HIATUS

A SCENE FROM A HOSPITAL. DOCTORS
ARE DESPERATELY TRYING TO SAVE A MIND.
BUT IS IT WORTH THE EFFORT? DOES A LIVELESS MIND
WITH IGNORANT CONVICTIONS, AN INDIFFERENT THINKER,
A PATIENT WHO HAS ALREADY GIVEN UP - A PATIENT PATIENT IN THIS CASE - DESERVE SAVING? OR, SHALL THIS MIND BE BETTER LEFT UNTOUCHED FOR INDEFINITE HIATUS?


H.USELESS

HUMANITY’S QUEST FOR EVERLASTING DEVELOPMENT HAS MOVED IN A NEW DIRECTION. NAMELY THE ESTABLISHMENT OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES THAT CAN LEAD US INTO AN ERA OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE ENVIRONMENT. DUE TO THE FACT THAT TECHNOLOGY IS MOSTLY USED AS AN ECONOMIC PRODUCT, THE TECHNOCRATIC SCENE HAS GROWN PRETTY FAST. BIG TECHNOLOGY COMPANIES HAVE TAKEN OVER THE WHEEL TO DEVELOP VISIONS FOR THE FUTURE. HOWEVER, THIS IS USUALLY A TASK OF POLITICS AND OF THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES. THE RISE OF AI TECHNOLOGY IS ACCOMPANIED BY A WEALTH OF INNOVATIONS. PROBLEMS SUCH AS THE SURVEILLANCE OF PEOPLE USING THESE TECHNOLOGIES. IN ADDITION, CREATING A WORLD IN WHICH ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE SURPASSES NATURAL INTELLIGENCE, HUMANS WILL BE FORCED TO SET UP THEMSELVES WITH BIONIC FEATURES. ALTHOUGH THIS SOUNDS LIKE A DYSTOPIAN CYBORG SCIENCE FICTION STORY AND OF COURSE THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR NEAR FUTURE, THAT IS ALREADY THE VISION OF SOME LEADING PEOPLE OF TECH COMPANIES. SUCCESS INDUCES THE QUEST FOR MORE SUCCESS. THEREFORE, BASED ON THE CURRENT PERSONS ECONOMIC WAY OF THINKING, ONE CAN EXTRAPOLATE THE FUTURE OF HUMANITY, IN WHICH HUMANS WILL TURN INTO A SOULLESS MACHINE OR GET OUTSOURCED AND BECOME A SO CALLED HOMO USELESS.

Track Name: LETTER TO ALDOUS
IN THIS TIME IT SEEMS LIKE
HANDS HAVE BECOME SOME DIFFERENT.
NEW LAYOUT. ASSIGNMENT.
DIGITAL BRAVE NEW WORLDS CLIENT.

EVERYONE AGREES IN THAT GREAT COMMUNICATION.
SQUEAKING RECEIVING SIGNALS.
SKIPPING POINTS IN OPEN CHATS.
GREEN DOT’S AS A SYMBOL
SUGGESTING THE ACTION OF SOMEBODY ELSE.
THE RISK OF DISAPPOINTING
TO BLOCK THE FLOW OF INFORMATION.

ALMOST A YEARNING – IF ONE‘S DIFFERENT.
CONSTANT DEMAND – ONE’S BOUND.
TO ANNOUNCE – TO BE LONELY.
TO SHARE WITH. TO BE NOTIFIED.

ACCELERATION OF THE GREATEST PRODUCTION.
BE ALWAYS REACHABLE
WITHOUT REACHING ANY (MEANING).
VALIDATION IS INSUFFICIENT.
TEST OBJECTS IN THE WORLD WIDE GALLOWS.
ALPHA PLUS, EPSILON MINUS.
GIVE ME SOMA OR LIE TO ME.
Track Name: MAELSTROM
I START TO SUFFER WITH THE FIRST THOUGHTS
IN THE MORNING CAUSED BY
THE ECHOES OF MY NIGHTMARES…
WITH ALL DEBILITATING THOUGHTS
THAT KEEP ME UP AT NIGHT.
I LIFT UP THE HEART OF THE WORLD.
I GET CAUGHT UP
IN THE MAELSTROM OF MY MIND
AND REACH THE RECURSIVE GROUND.
TANGLED UP HERE. IN THIS CONSTRUCTED MESS.
REPETITION. STARTING OVER.
POTICHU NASLOUCHÁM
KLIDNÝMU PŘÍBOJI V MÝ HLAVĚ
TO JEHO KYSELÝ MOŘE MĚ SPALUJE
A VŠECHNY ÚSTÍ HO ŽIVÍ.
I AVOID TO WATCH IN THOSE EYES,
BUT I ALWAYS TRY TO SET THE EXIT CONDITION.
WAITING HERE ALONE.
I’M STUMBLING UNTIL I WILL GET MY RELIEF.
Track Name: WHATABOUTISM
DID YOU KNOW – WHO CARES.
COINCIDENCE – WHY NOT.

SEND, RETURN, FOLLOW.
NEVER DO, NEVER DARE.

WHAT IF...
SEEMS LEGIT.

OH WHY NOT – SHELL.

COME FOLLOW ME I’M HERE, I CAN’T.
NO NEED TO CONTRADICT, I’M BLIND.

YOU ARE A PART OF MANKIND EVOLVE.
SEND RETURN, DON’T SPEAK UP.

CAUSE THIS IS WHAT YOU WANT,
CAUSE THIS IS PLEASANT.
STAY CALM, OBEY, HAVE TRUST.
Track Name: COGNITIVE BIAS
RUNNING ON RAZORS IS WHAT I MOST LOVE.
(I DUNNO WHAT’S LOVE).
IT CAN CAUSE SOME SCARS, BUT THE FEELING’S ABOVE.
CUZ MY REACTION. MUCH DEEPER THAN I THOUGHT.
HOLD MY PARTS, BEFORE I EXPLODE.
SHARKS SWIMMING DEEP IN MIND….
THAT MIGHT BE REASONS – I RECOMMEND.
Track Name: DEL
I FLEE - AND HIDE MYSELF
FROM SOMETHING THAT NEVER SHOULD´VE HAPPENED.
A REALITY? IT’S NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR.
DENIALISM. THIS DISTINCTIVE TONGUE
ERASED THEIR IDENTITY.
NO TRACE WILL LEAD TO THEM YET.
ALL ARE GONE IN VANISHED CHRONICLES.
CONTROL OF HISTORY BY YOUR ILLIBERAL REGIME.
CONTROL. SELECTIVE MEMORIES.
ALL THOSE LIVES LEFT UNDEFINED.
REVISIONISM, LET’S CALL IT WHAT IT IS.
DECLARE.
REVISIONISM, LET’S CALL IT WHAT IT IS.
GUILT.
Track Name: THE SOCIAL DARWINIST PROGRAM

A TOMORROW OF HUMAN HUBRIS.

SUCCESS AWAKES AVIDITY.
OBLIVION - JUST MORAL STAGNATION.
OUR NEXT PROJECT: SELF-OPTIMIZED
AND THE QUEST FOR IMMORTALITY.
