I HAVE NEVER YELLED AT A GIRL LIKE DIS
I LIVE FOR CLUELESS MOTHERS
Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet on the set of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
We are living in a culture entirely hypnotized by the illusion of time, in which the so-called present moment is felt as nothing but an infinitesimal hairline between an all-powerfully causative past and an absorbingly important future. We have no present. Our consciousness is almost completely preoccupied with memory and expectation. We do not realize that there never was, is, nor will be any other experience than present experience. We are therefore out of touch with reality. We confuse the world as talked about, described, and measured with the world which actually is. We are sick with a fascination for the useful tools of names and numbers, of symbols, signs, conceptions and ideas.
Well played Girl Scouts, well played…
Eric Rohmer, Love in the Afternoon, 1972.
