Intensity is cause and effect. Intimicy is physical and emotion.

O BRILHOZINHO NO OLHO
O impulso. Tratar de arrumar as malas e sair é decisão adversa. Se está a morrer, mata tu. Triunfo glorioso de quem come o próprio coração. A essa tempestade também se chama progresso.
Antes de ter medo prefiro conhecer. Dançar no vazio e perder a fé nesse momento.
Se não tenho fé, não acredito nem em deus, nem no diabo. Nem no céu, nem no inferno. Se já não acredito no inferno, já não tenho medo. E sem medo sou capaz de tudo.
Que me brilhem os olhos.

O BRILHOZINHO NO OLHO

O impulso. Tratar de arrumar as malas e sair é decisão adversa. Se está a morrer, mata tu. Triunfo glorioso de quem come o próprio coração. A essa tempestade também se chama progresso.

Antes de ter medo prefiro conhecer. Dançar no vazio e perder a fé nesse momento.

Se não tenho fé, não acredito nem em deus, nem no diabo. Nem no céu, nem no inferno.
Se já não acredito no inferno, já não tenho medo. E sem medo sou capaz de tudo.

Que me brilhem os olhos.


Just being human is not good enough anymore nor has it ever been. What is very clear is that people are not satisfied with what they were naturally born with. Neither the prehistoric cave dweller nor modern man has ever considered the human body aesthetically satisfactory. It is human nature to want to be more than what we are, and from the beginning of time we have gone to extreme measures to express on the outside how we desire to be perceived. On the surface, we are physically turning into ideal dream versions of ourselves. Being born a certain way is no longer a life sentence. We can choose exactly who we want to be. What are the possibilities of this new God-like control we have over our bodies? Right now you can truly become more than just yourself, more than human. It’s almost as if we have shifted from reality into fantasy. The sky is the limit when it comes to controlling our own image. Being online is considered a trusted version of yourself. We are behaving as if we have robotic extensions and we can now generate body parts and also have access to the technology to obtain super powers. We now have complete power over our own image and abilities. What is currently being done and where might these God-like powers potentially lead?

Yes, I’m aquarius.

Aquarius is the eleventh astrological sign of the Zodiac, originating from the constellation Aquarius.

In Greek mythology, Aquarius is identified with Ganymede, a youth whom Zeus fell in love with. Ganymede is a divine hero whose homeland was Troy. Zeus in the guise of an eagle represented by the constellation Aquilla, carried Ganymede to Mount Olympus to be a cup bearer to the gods. Aquarius was the pourer of waters during the mythical great flood, via the constellation or Eridanus the river.

Aquarius is one of the three signs which compose the air triplicity, along with Gemini and Libra.

Metronomy's new video I’m Aquarius from the new album Love Letters | Directed by Edouard Salier.

Hey love! Tricky has a new video | Directed by Hugo Goudswaard “I visualised a woman on a bench in a park undergoing different stages within a relationship. A snail being her counterpart. At the same time it is also a tribute to the dark skin.”

 

Names give people something to hold onto. We all get one after a while. It’s directly liked to your identity.

Enclothed cognition is when we take on the perceived characteristics of the clothing that we wear, so much so that it influences the way we think and behave…
