CULTURAL BARBARIANS at the GATE

CULTURAL BARBARIANS at the GATE #1 ...



"illuminations"

it is not just ruins of an ancient temple you demolished to a pulp, it is a semiotic piece of your very existence as a people; a reality constructed socially through language that defines it. more than this it is a monument upon which you are to preserve as an anchor of learning, and an installation of an inscription that inspire you to inquire into the ethics of authenticity; a system of belief of what the self is and how society in all its progressive strands of stability and harmony, and what salvation through the philosophy of samsara means and how these in turn , through a trajectory of transcultural evolution has defined you through the language you use daily with words such as :

jiwa, raga, sukma, anugeraha, sangsara, puji puja, sembahHyang, citrarasa, gurindam, seloka, hina dina, duka nestapa, kala, dewata, bayu, indera, purnama, saujana, panca indera, sandiwara, astaka, shurga, neraka, dosa, pahala, alam semesta, durjana, sahaya, nescaya, kelana, mergasetua, derma, dharma, budi, bakhti, budi-daya, budaya, lakshamana, singahsana, ceritera, sutra, sengketa, jaya, cinta, negara, ayahnda, ibunda, maya, ...

all these and more are the postscripts of the reality of who you are ... these and the entire spectrum and kaleidoscope of the existentialism of your and your community's collective consciousness ...

and you are ashamed of this past you failed to see the beauty of its philosophical glory? and you are waging a jihad against what you perceive at the phallo-centric object of blasphemy? what shallow understanding of what you have of the ethics of authenticity and the paranoia you have build within yourself, projects in your insecurities worse that a Freudian misinterpretation of the Oedipal and Elektra Complexes ...

and you destroy what you do not wish nor care to understand? and call it the will of Man honoring the word of god? or it is all about money and more money in these nice words you have crafted as a prison-house of language -- words that no longer have any meaning in this world of the globalization of Nothingness, in a world of a stream of consciousness that flows violently .... a world of Legolands, this and that harems for Walt Disney, of tourism economy that destroy the environment arrogantly, endlessly, unrepentingly ...

and cultural barbarians you are -- that should be keep outside the great wall of our kingdom of hope built upon the natural growth of the renaissance of knowledge and upon and enlightened path shone unto us, at this yuga of a festive and joyous celebration of cosmopolitanism, of cultural acceptance, of the diversity amongst us, between us, and inside of us ... these are the hanging gardens we shall build to keep you and your jihad at bay ...

agree?
and you must agree ...
and accept it -- for your salvation ! -- ar
