The Existential Grid
by Peter Christian Ness

We are born into an invisible grid, each and every one of us Intersubjective, but never intertwined.
What does it feel like to be a woman?
What does it feel like to be a man?
What does it feel like to be?
What does it feel like to be in another grid?
Deathly silence, a metaphysical barrier.
You may stare into foreign eyes and drive the probe of your celestial self into the deepest flora of “the other.”
You may explore the ground beneath “the other's” feet
Until eternal oblivion sweeps you away.
But you will be none the wiser
You and I will never comprehend the inner clockworks, the intellectual mechanisms, the factory of the mind.
Even if the black ribbons of smoke from cement chimneys continue to rise,
Even if the mechanism continues to churn,
Even if the clockwork continues to tick,
Until the suspension of time,
You will be alone with yourself
And I will
–In all the glory of human futility–
Keep on searching.

You are in search of your own identity? We are on a fixed path which we can't get off, like the electrical cables on these towers

I like how the scale changes and the "balls" become huge.

Partir à la recherche de soi et de l'autre, comprendre, écouter, ressentir jusqu'à la fin des temps, jusqu'à l'oubli... deux lignes parallèles seulement ?
La quintessence est pourtant la même, le courant qui nous parcourt est pourtant identique. Alors qu'est donc cette grille invisible nous séparant à jamais, [u]semble[/u]-t-il ?

I'm too stupid to understand all these words, but may be you Antonio knows - what these balls on electricity lines are for? I saw them in Izrael in many places.

deep, deep words ... the image a perfect match for the thoughts provoked by the words
