“The five colours blind the eye.
The five tones deafen the ear.
The five flavours dull the taste.
Racing and hunting madden the mind.
Precious things lead one astray.Therefore the sage is guided by what he feels
and not by what he sees.
He lets go of that and chooses this.”
Tao Te Ching

“The twentieth century is, among other things,
the Age of Noise.
Physical noise, mental noise and noise of desire
-we hold history’s record for all of them.
And no wonder; for all the resources of our almost miraculous technology
have been thrown into the current assault against silence.”
Aldous Huxley

…digital noise is exponentially multiplied in the twenty first century.
