Mehr Licht

Inspired hugely from the term Phenakistoscope, in 1980 Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari wrote a book named A Thousand Plateaus as the second part of their Capitalism and Schizophrenia Project. The Phenakistoscope is an early animation device which was invented in by Joseph Plateau. Sadly fascinated by the persistence of luminous impressions on the retina, Plateau performed an experiment in which he gazed directly into the sun for 25 seconds. Consequently, he lost his eyesight later in his life. It's a sad, sad story which also brings me to my last point: Mehr Licht which means more light in English and is believed to be the last words of Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe in his deathbed, is all I can say. Mehr licht helios hyperion, sic luceat lux. Or in Arthur Rimbaud words: L’eternite. C’est la mer melee au soleil. Or in Charles Baudelaire words: Homme libre, toujours tu cheriras la mer! La mer est ton miroir; tu contemples ton ame. Anyway, let's see some Heavenly Bobby.
