- concept
There's no pre-established harmony in this world actually.
That's right, just like the weather forecast.
We unwittingly live everyday on the basis of pre-established harmony;
"if that happens, then it'll be like this."
The train schedule, tomorrow's weather, the future of Earth.
We have absolute trust in science, love forecasting the future, and become irritated when things son't turn out the way the are supposed to.
A disease of the modern civilization where everyone believes in pre-established harmony.
But in reality, with many things, "Even if that happens, this won't happen."
It's always dark one step ahead. But darkness doesn't mean it's gloomy.
This piece is neither a critique of modern society nor nostalgia, but one that presents what lies ahead for all of us as we live through an era where values have disintegrated.
