Artists make mankind an individual by connecting the past with the future in the present. Artists are the higher organ of the soul where the vital spirits of all external humanity join together, and where inner humanity has its primary sphere of action.
Friedrich Schlegel, Ideas

Dialogue Prompts: “Past…”
1. “That was so long ago, you can’t seriously still be mad.”
“I’m not, but I need a favor so I’m gonna say you still owe me.”
2. “You can’t just ignore what happened.”
“Not with you constantly dragging it up for no reason, I can’t.”
3. “Do you remember when—”
“No. I don’t share any memories with you anymore, remember?”

We all operate from billions upon billions of deeply stored memories. This is our conditioning, our programming, our filters and prisms, the past we confuse with the present, the psychological inevitability we get mixed up with personal originality.
Is there an existential beingness that is not connected to and limited by the past, which is memory, which is association, which is thought?

I wanted the past to go away, I wanted to leave it, like another country; I wanted my life to close, and open like a hinge, like a wing, like the part of the song      where it falls down over the rocks: an explosion, a discovery;      I wanted to hurry into the work of my life; I wanted to know, whoever I was, I was alive for a little while.
Mary Oliver, “Dogfish,” from Dream Work
