Johan Huizinga & Henri Lefebvre
Like a
child
that has not yet learnt to smile,
restless
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
mixed-up, foolish and crude
.
'wuwei'
:
belly knowledge; intuition;
naturalism;

freedom.

'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
.
Daoist
philosopher
Lao Zi
(lit. 'Old Child')

We are soft and
nimble when living
,
but firm and rigid when dead.
