I think more than anything in the world, I wish to evoke in people, that is, within themselves, the sense of rapture in the song of life, the human drama; the idea of being alive.
The modern world is accepted on the blanket of the nanny state and complacency of stuff. We keep repackaging it and expect it to get better somehow. It’s still just stuff.
My goal more than ever is to influence people to treat their own rapture and bliss as the highest priority in their lives, and that this, in the end trumps attempts at infinitely securing mere survival–that is, the physical state is worth risking and even sacrificing for, on behalf of the mental state. Not the other way around as every existing culture would have you believe.
The latter cannot ultimately come first, but in the immediate, can be for sure, and often is by necessity.
The reason we are in love with Zombie movies has very little to do with the given: good marketing, and more to do with our Narcissus Narcosis and OCD fidgeting.
Why? Because we are the zombies. Not them.
Whoever the ‘the they’ is at a given place and time.
