A social environment evolving like a heavenly body / 2014

A sort of dream, one that unites different types of people from the most widely diverse different places, a vision at times sharp, at times confused, in which noises, sounds and evolutions emerge, where the development of the tone may be captured – at times altered, distorted, but then becoming more and more incisive.

I lose myself, knowing I am not alone.

………. I am in my office at the faculty, after having been captured by images and by the power to activate collective dynamics.

Art dynamics that have the impetus of an outer core, a liquid which creates exchange, an acceleration that changes behaviors and closures.

A new possible drift.

A Pangea communication in which: dance takes place in unsuitable places, the sound, the music interact: with social structures, with pre-organized behaviors, with an atrophied capitalist system.

To drift.

A theorized drift, according to Lothar Wegener, would continue even today – Greenland would distance itself from Europe at a rate of almost 1 meter per year.

We dance in continents. While the sirens distract …

The ocean floor is splitting and widening, according to Harry Hammond Hess, the continents moving away from the expanding seabed.

Expanding ….

Like unexpected human relationships, sought, found, extemporaneous, connected in extending a project, in producing it, in the creation of new structures, unpublished, relational, and open codes.

There is nothing more romantic than the theory of George Howard Darwin – who advanced the hypothesis that the moon was a piece of the earth that broke off eons ago, leaving the Pacific Ocean as a scar.

The moon has a mass slightly greater than 1 per cent of the combined total mass of earth and moon together, small enough to fit into a space as large as the Pacific.

If the moon were actually comprised of material from the outer layers of the earth, it would explain why it does not contain an iron core and has a density much lower than earth.  It would also explain why the seafloor of the Pacific is free of continental granite.

The moon was closer to earth than it is today.

The gravitational pull exerted by the moon causes flukes both in oceans as well as in the solid crust of the earth. With the rotation of the earth, the water in the oceans is pushed out of the shallows, while rock layers rise and fall, rubbing against each other.

The resulting friction slowly converts the energy of the earth’s rotation into heat, which causes a gradual increase in its rotational cycle.

Looking back in time to a very remote geological past, one would see that the Earth’s rotation was supposed to be faster, the days significantly shorter, the moon closer and the whole phenomenon quicker.

What is left of a transformation? Of an aggregation to reread social systems?
