OUR SPECULAR SYSTEM

The System is a universal objectification of egoism in the guise of a great hall of mirrors down which we must all parade, some more enthusiastically than others. Some see themselves as a reflection of the system, others that the system works as if it were a reflection of they themselves, and still others who sense a two-way mirroring. But an increasing number of us stand before the crazy, image-distorting mirrors that flatten or elongate our image of ourselves, stretch us up or make us shorter. Nevertheless, for those who don’t identify with the reflection we see, this hall of mirrors is disconcerting, even maddening, and it is only the fear of being cut to shreds by the shards of the System that makes us resist the urge to smash our way out of here.
