about

現在はつながりの時代だ。つながりは全てなのだ。人々、国々、つながりのネットワークがどんどん普及している。しかし、このプロセスは自然に行われているだけではない。

現在はつながりの時代だ。だが、それはネットワークが普及していると言う意味だけではない。現在ほどつながりに意識を集中している時代はないのである。

つながりに集中している現在は、過去の時代よりつながりが強いのだろうか。人間社会の全ての能力を用いて、つながりのネットワークを作っている集団が、まるで現実のように活動しているのだが、それは本当に現実と言えるだろうか。自然の中でのつながりはそのような在り方ではないだろう。海にいる魚類、空気にある酸素、木の枝にある葉、つながっている事を知らない。ただ、そのままでつながっている。

技術を使って、つながりに集中している為に自然の中のネットワークが見えなくなってしまうのだろうか。

自然の力に身を任せて。つながりを忘れて。そして自然の素晴らしいネットワークの一部であることに気づく。

現在、梅レコードは、カナダ、バンクーバーの PARC のアルバム "Loop Radiance" をリリースする。

~

We are in an age of connections. Connections are everything. Between people, countries, networks of connections are spreading further and further. However, this process is not just occurring naturally.

We are in an age of connections. But this is not just to say that networks are spreading. There has been no prior age in which we have been so focused on connections.

Is this age in which we are so focused on connections, one in which our connections are stronger? Using all the intelligence of human society, the organizations creating the networks are operating as though this is fact, but can we really say this is so? In nature this is not how connections exist. The fish in the ocean, the oxygen in the atmosphere, the leaves on the branches of trees, they do not know that they are connected. They simply are.

Due to our focus on connection through the use of technology, will we perhaps loose the ability to see the networks in nature?

Give in to the power of nature. Forget your connections. Then you will once again become conscious as one part of nature's glorious network.
