Sleep, Wake, Tendencies 眠り、覚醒、傾向

Sleeping is a rest for body and mind.

眠りとは心と体の休息です。

While people are sleeping, sleep fixes people’s “tendencies.”

眠っている間に、眠りは人々の「傾向」を癒します。

If there are muscles that are tended to overworked, sleep will fix that part of muscle.

使われすぎている筋肉があれば、眠りはその部分の筋肉を治します。

If there are heavy tendency in the thinking, sleep will disperse it as dreams.

もし考え方に重い傾向があれば、眠りはそれを夢として散らします。

I read things like that in TV People by Haruki Murakami

こういうことを村上春樹のTVピープルで読みました。

 

If the scientist program massive amount of data in the robot’s Artificial Intelligence, the robot won’t wake.

プロセスできないほどの量のデータを人工知能にプログラムされたロボットは目覚めない。

The scientist programmed 6 billion minds in the robots. There are too many varieties.

科学者は60億人分のデータをロボットにプログラムした。それは多すぎるバラエティーだ。

To wake the robot, the scientist needs to give it “tendencies”. Strong emotional tendency.

ロボットを覚醒させるために、科学者はロボットに「傾向」を与える必要がある。強い感情の傾向を。

Strong emotion simplifies the world, and tendency sorts out information.

強い感情は世界を単純化し、傾向は情報を取捨選択する。

That was what needed to wake the robot up from sleeping in eternal varieties.

それが永遠に続く選択肢の眠りの中からロボットを覚醒するのに必要なものでした。

TENDENCIES.

傾向。

I read this last night in Japanese comic book series called Pluto, remake of Atom Boy by Osamu Tezuka.

昨日の夜私はこれを、手塚治虫の鉄腕アトムのリメイクの、プルートゥという日本のマンガで読みました。

In our sleep, tendencies are balanced out, cured, enhanced, added, and we wake.

私たちの眠りの中で、傾向はバランスを整えられ、治癒され、拡大され、加えられ、そして私達は目覚める。

The photo is a painting I finished lately. I tried to describe a boy falling into unconscious state.

写真は私が最近完成させた絵で、男の子が無意識に落ちていくのを絵で表現しようとしたものです。

Projects: PSICOMAGIA and A Painting

I’ll share some of my projects I recently finished here.

PSICOMAGIA:

I made 2 videos of PSICOMAGIA’s live show at Tin Can Alehouse. They’ve been playing at venues around San Diego. Highly recommended to go see them live especially if you are tired of seeing wussy hipster bands. Don’t get me wrong though, I like wussy bands too, I don’t even know who exactly hipsters are, but I’m just saying these musicians are not that, whatever it really is. I got the recording of this show from Brian Ellis (who plays sax in Psicomagia) You should be able to hear the details pretty well. Use of headphones recommended to hear better.

A PAINTING:

I finished this painting after I came back from family vacation in Hawaii.

This painting used to look like below. Can you see how much I calmed down after swimming in Hawaii??

I wrote about my vacation in Hawaii in the last blog. When I was underwater and watching fishes, sleeping on the quiet nearly empty beach, I nicely realized that my art and my thoughts and everything that I clumsily stress about don’t matter because the fishes I saw in the clear warm water didn’t give a shit. Fishes don’t give a shit, so why should I? It’s a weird logic, but it’s been working for me and making me feel very content.

The video below is a song that I like by the Strokes and Regina Spektor. And I was listening to this song in Hawaii, and the line “Always thinking about yourself” stood out somehow.  I think it is a very real mentality in urban environment. But it wasn’t in Hawaii, at least for me. It felt pretty silly to be that way when I immersed myself in the nature, especially when I was in mild panic at 80 feet deep in the ocean during scuba diving.

Always thinking about yourself. Always thinking about yourself. Always thinking about yourself.
