The Statue of Four Lies:
The First Lie, perhaps can be found, in choosing one of these extremes alone---
The Philosopher Versus The Engineer:
he who questions, instead of, he who constructs.
One without the assistance and harmony of the other,
would it ultimately lead to failure, horror, or dissatisfaction?
The Next Three Falsehoods:
The Inscription Reads:
"False in OneFalse in AllFalse in Nothing"
Believing in only yourself, is untrue: this rules out solipsism.
Believing in everything around you, rules out pure materialism.
Believing in nothing or nihilism, too, is a falsehood.
Because reality is ultimately a combination of all these things.
Finally, the conclusion suggests:
"The World wants to be deceived,therefore, let them be deceived."
What do you guys think all this means?
Is there some truth to it, do you reckon?
I must admit, I'm utterly fascinated with the entire thing...
whether or not my assumptions and interpretations are correct,
the existence and the discovery of this particular monument/statues/Latin inscriptions
have completely inspired my artistic and philosophical need to create
and speak more than I ever have before... But to what end, I wonder?
Hope you all are doing well, I'm trudging through my first month at my new school. Everything is hectic, chaotic, and I'm not really sure I can even remotely control the circumstances of my life enough to give it the direction it needs. This crushing weight of the immense responsibility of being an adult... Of having to make difficult choices and compromise loosely held ethical principles at every turn does cause me to become a tad bit pessimistic... But I resolve to go forth and fail, aiming to learn from my mistakes instead of being thrown backwards by them!
