Yes, since you're not really the 'author' and you claim authorship.
Secondly, 'art' and 'design' for example are not being merged by
joshua davis, nor is art and everyday life merged by who kniws
what-they are all priorly present situations of which the 'artists'
is aware. The Beuys 'sculptures' were something else–and_ Beuys was
c a p a b l e of executing them, and he was_. He was more than an
active_ creator, allowing volition. You're not a creator_ and you are
appropriating volition. Nothing like Beuys.

No, nothing of the sort really happens, even though
you're just vaguely 'touching' on something that you do not
understand. With the 'e!ez' of the spirit one SEES and KNOWS
that to damage another is to 2x damage onself.

That is, the state you allude to, is nothing that you've experienced

Fortunately consciousness is very prec!s–unlike your vague 'poetic'

I stream through you not.
