    And on top of that we live in the attention economy.

    Attention is now more important than money. You can see this clearly with celebrities like Paris Hilton who have all the money in the world but devote their whole lives to gaining more attention.

    We may not be as successful as Paris Hilton, Sim. But we can pay one another attention.
    Come, let us validate each other's existence, and a crisis will be averted.

    After putting your art out into the world, I understand why you don't want to have to explain what it means. Either people get it or they don't. Why should you have to spell it out, espcially if the audience seems unappreciative and nit-picky? It dispels what you see as the magic ...

    People are trying to peel away your layers Victor yet you resolutely hold them close to you. We try our best to catch a glimpse of what you are hiding, but have to conclude you're either imprisoned behind your persona or there's really nothing deeper there at all. Perhaps you fear too that there's nothing else there ... or you feel you already have laid your soul bare and we are simply blind to see it.

    I doubt the majority in this thread want to destroy you - people see the art, appreciate the art, and the art becomes more tangible if we can see the real person behind it, even if only from time to time. Even, for just a second. That's all really. You've got a lot of folks either frustrated or fascinated by you, so that's no small feat. We just sense there's more!

    Perhaps, but either way, the audience loses interest in the fad or consumes the artist. You must make the art for your own sake, not the world's.

    I think if one presents information in a way that people find hard to comprehend, one should not be surprised if people constantly question what it means.

    Just a realistic truth of human communications.

    There is a thinking stuff from which all things are made, and which, in its original state, permeates, penetrates, and fills the interspaces of the universe.

    What's there to analyze.

    Victor is in a stream of consciousness that prefers to talk in double spacing. He's obviously got Office 2007 and knows how to use it.

    Sure, there's what I say and how I say it.

    I was watching a video of Marissa Mayer from Google and she was asked for three tags to describe herself. So she said, "Creativity, optimism and logic".

    I admire her so I asked myself the same question and came up with empathy, creativity, presence and pleasure. And I realise that pleasure is my touchstone.

    I am comfortable in my own skin. I realised that pleasure is a real thing for me tempered by empathy, creativity and presence.

    So for me, empathy, creativity and presence are only the pathway to pleasure.

    So I write to please myself. And if I can't please myself, I won't be able to please you.

    So I am not a puzze to solve, rather I am pleasure to enjoy.

    Of course you may or may not enjoy what I write, but to question what I mean misses the point.

    So I try to subvert your quest for meaning by saying the meaning of my post is its response.

    And of course I enjoy your response just as I enjoy writing my posts.

    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?
