L'ART MÉTAPHORIQUE ET LA POÉSIE DU REGARD

L

es historiens s'étonneront un jour que les spécialistes occidentaux aient tant tardé à traiter de l'art de l'Iran en le replaçant dans les contexte de sa culture. Peut-être cette culture était-elle fondée sur des prémisses trop différentes celles de l'Europe pour être comprises d'emblée. Pour l'Iran, le monde que l'occident appelle < réel > n'est que la métaphore de la réalité supérieure du monde spirituel.

Son art ne décrit dons jamais ce monde matériel. Il transcrit visuellement des métaphores dont l'énoncé en clair est livré par la littérature qu'il suffit de fréquenter pour en saisir le sens. Le poète comme le prosateur disent que le ciel est le lapis, de turquoise, ou or. Le poète chante...

THE CARROT IN FRONT OF THE HORSE

Y

ears ago, many years ago, Twitter was invented by the old civilizations. Yes, recent investigations confirm that the pyramids of Egypt were, in fact, immortal huge fake news. The fact that you explain over and over a story make affordable, good and real. But, if that story is not present physically somewhere, people can just adapt it. Your enemies would make you weak, maybe furthers generations change your name or, even worse, they could say you weren't so magnificent and beautiful as you think you are. Tones of stones, that is a very good idea. Unique frontal message. Like social net do, tones and tones of maybe not real people telling not real stuff but, at last, an affordable story.

Imagine the power of a good story. In the "One Thousand and One Nights" we have the king Shahryār who likes to kill virgins in the morning after married them the night before.

- Any good solution for this? No one? Guys, come one, one of you probably have a good idea, all of you are doctors, viziers, mathematics, astrophysics, philosophers, chess players, soldiers (probably all of you are men) Really, Nobody? - (Nobody cares about women...?)

Wait, Scheherazade, Vizier's daughter (maybe well educated, but with no access to the university) have one:

- I can explain to the king a fabulous story that have no end so, at least, everybody can continue with their lives. Everybody except the killed virgins, of course - (And I'll play with mine meanwhile...)

- Mmm... Why not?! Let's enjoy another weadding!

- Bravo! Bravo!

The carrot in front of the horse. For Shahryār the stories of Scheherazade were that, like the opinion and the information is for us. Like Scheherazade, the life of the media depends of how long they took our attention so, any idea is a good idea. It is more important the amount of the attention than the quality or of the reality of it. A new is good meanwhile it gives you as much attention as possible. Isn't terrible?. It is good to listen a fairy tale, but we have to know that a fairy tale never can be true. Otherwise... Where is my castle?

But, at last, let me do a confession. If I have to choose between: "we are living in a flat planet on the top of a tortoise and four elephants" and "We are living in a fragile sphere (which one we are killing meanwhile we still inside) that is moving at a super fast speed and we are alive just because in this part of the galaxy is quite empty but we GOT NO IDEA ABOUT THE REST, WE KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING"... let me say, today is Sunday. I'll consider just for today about the tortoise theory.

Have a lovely Sunday dear croissant :^*
