on art and happenings of existence

Art is what stucks man into happenings.Without it,everything would be a continuous happen that would not present opcions besides the possibility of "being modified" pasively. To stop,is to have sudden consciousness of the sence and the direction of existence and existent and to position for a while between the self and the objects of the world.To take place in the double sided consiousness of being and see yourself reflected in things as a far being.The everyday situations is an ilusion,a representation of what is given,and interpretation of the perception.The so called real is given to us like a parameter,but it is at the end a self parameter.It shows us the capability we have to observe,to conceive values,and to situate us in the universe.There is nothing in the world that does not resemble us;and it resembles us because we idealize it to know it,we re-build it inside an idea to which we give the universal character,onlly to make the self exteriorize,and transmisible as if it also was somthing given. We are,witness,not for the fact that we observe,buit because we give testimony,that is,we take part,and we enrichen the fact. Who only repeats its testimony is the mirror if another testimony and not of the fact. The one who remembers,reinvents its history of a moment;Who makes art,gives himself to the others ,like the phenomena to be recalled,remembered,enrichened,but what most matters,is that he crates the fact.
