[composer’s note…
«In what percentage can the human mind (Brain + Soul) perceive the infinite realities and coordinates, existing and moving Con-Currently? (…)».

The above question is the one I had set to my self, a few days before the opening of the latest SYN presentation. I knew that the specific event would teach me a lot. Even more than I could then imagine.
The quest for the Answer to that Question led me to Friedrich Nietzsche’s poetry excerpt, also exhibited within SYN, and placed under a dear mirror I had bought when I was still a student, back in London. Nietzsche’s words reminded me the hint I needed, through Dionyssus’s advice to Ariadne:
«[…] Must one not first hate oneself, in order to love oneself?… […]»

So, during and after the end of SYN, a series of events, led me have two opposite feelings, at the same time…;
one of a complete relegation and one of a pure apotheosis.
In other words, Dionyssus’s question helped me hate (…) myself;
it helped me accept myself; it helped me love my self; (once) more.

No matter if pain or joy, disappointment or fulfillment, is a Feeling’s root, each time, yet it is still a Feeling. And that’s what makes us Humans = Living Beings. That is what bounds everyone with each other. Those organic cells and tubes carrying every kind of life, inside us; and every visible or invisible form of cyma + energy, around us.
This is SYN. It is a Moment (one of the many ‘Single’ Moments) when we Feel the Whole.
Therefore, that is my Answer to my Question.
And if I have to speak with numbers, I would say: ~ -∞+ %

«Be clever, Ariadne!…
You have little ears; you have my ears:
Put a clever word in them! —
Must one not first hate oneself, in order to love oneself?…
I am your labyrinth…» – Friedrich Nietzsche
from Ariadne’s Lament (‘Dionysus to Ariadne’ excerpt), «Dionysus-Dithyrambs», 1888
