And what is a moment then? What is the length? There is much beauty in a moment, in drawing out a moment, in smearing out a moment into a wafer thin layer of sight and sound. In doing so, we see a moment’s true composition, it’s fundamental components, it’s elements, it’s structure, it’s essence. So much of which is not so readily apparent when taken as a whole. Particularly when there are so so many more “moments” stacked up behind it steadily and rapidly accreting on it’s heals waiting for us to ingest, digest and comprehend on some higher level – for the high function purpose of survival. So much stimulation and information it’s very difficult to slow down and see – really see, let alone meaningfully think about and consider what we see.
