Why can’t
say anything

why is the world so radically different
why is everything always the same
why is everything going to happen
why do I feel about the future
why would anyone spend their time
thinking about the future
or the past
or anything for that matter

Words from the film

“Mother-I never enjoyed raising him the way other mothers enjoyed their children”
“Father-what does he know about children anyway has he got any of his own?
Mother-in laboratories”
The Tenth Man

The Tenth Man was a radio series made by the National Mental Health Foundation. It consisted of thirteen episodes, broadcast from October 17, 1947 through January 16, 1948. Each episode dealt with a particular area of mental health, ranging from children’s issues to issues dealing with the elderly. “

“What is it you all are doing pretending to be real ?
Are you trying to make me believe i am unreal?
Standing strangely on the green pavement
yet it’s been so long since you were real….
It is true you are still superior to me but only when i leave you in peace.”

Jorge Luis Borges

“Well..Look what happens with guilt
it turns out it’s being
basis of a
null projection
it’s it’s
being ungrounded
it’s not being able to get behind your thrownness”
“to call into question the ungroundedness of the culture would be world collapse
and that’s death
i mean
the death part of it means that all your possibilities could be annihilated”

Hubert Dreyfus-From a lecture on Heidegger(I can track down the specific lecture)
