Art is the Technology of the Self

Science proves that humans require Art. Without the surrealist films we dream while sleeping, we go insane. (see 1)

Humanity is learned. The humanities are how we learn it. (see 2 also see 3)

We go to war every day for metaphors like Freedom and God. But many artists agree with Auden that "Poetry makes nothing happen."

Art is our best tool for redefining ourselves. We change by reading ourselves, also known as overhearing. (see 4)

We have the science to save or destroy the world. We find the apocalypse easier to imagine. (see 5)

Art is the technology of the self.
