Those who do not
engage in physical activities
spend much of their lives
in a
slightly
depressed mental state

as that they miss out
on the effects of endorphins
that reward those
who are active.

Singapore is managed by a regime that has excluded accident and randomness: even its nature is entirely remade.
It is pure intention: if there is chaos, it is authored chaos;
if it is ugly, it is
designed ugliness; if it is absurd, it is willed absurdity. Singapore represents a unique
ecology of the contemporary.

Kristofer Schipper 1994
Landscape and body recursively intertwined, both constitutive and constituting, and always in a process opt (re)formation. [...] The landscape is an extension of the body and mind, and vice versa.

‘Like a

as if I have
no home
to return to. My mind is that of a
fool – ignorant and stupid
! Other people are clear and have reason; I alone am

Drift:
a revolt against the spectacle, calling everything into question.
Drift: to bring about
a revolution of everyday life, to transgress the alienating spectacle; a playful-constructive behaviour

'wuwei':

opposition
to authority, government coercion, and even to normal
socialisation in values,
via a
distinct ambivalence,
indirect, non-argumentative
style, and the use of
poetry
and parable

We will push on, to persevere, to not grow weary, to not get faint even when it hurts.
On that toughest mile, just when we think that we’ve hit a wall, someone will be
there to cheer us on and pick us up if we fall. We carry on. We race. We strive. (2013)
