A pirate walked into a bar wearing an eye patch and one hook for his arm.
Barman asked:
“what happen to your eye?”
Pirate: “A bird shit in it then I lost my eye”
Barman: “No way, bird shit won’t hurt your eye like that?!”
Pirate: “Well, it’s the first day I had my hook on”.


The intellect is a sharp instrument,  without the user’s menu humans beings seems to have long way to go in dealing such intellect, and learn how to use such tool without causing self harm or eventually  (self) blinded by it. Unfortunately  it seems to be the only tool in the shop.
我们的智能是一个基于”切割”的犀利工具, 人类对驾驭这个具有智能的生命本身缺乏认知.我们如何在不可避免的过度开发智能的过程中和之后避免其戕害, 然而除却智能/智力我们仿佛也别无选择.

“Lightning Struck” does not only symbolise a wakeup call, with tons of steel, concrete, electricity and light, it’s physical presence makes it act like one. Plato’s cave is not merely a philosophical metaphor, it’s in fact a very much literal depiction how higher dimensions project it’s existence onto lower ones. What we observe from our sensory faculties is vast limited and deceitful as it maybe just a projection of something could never to perceived by us. This necessity of other unknown existences is vital undertone along our human history. May it be folklores, mythologies, conspiracy theories, paranormal phenomenons, and even till today the “not yet unified theory” in theoretical physics, all of this left great spaces for our imagination - one of the most primitive and powerful form of artistic creativity. This imagination of otherliness or the courage of it is the only wings to break through the prison built by rationalism, materialism world views. Here “Lightning Struck” works as a reminder of our human beings’ courage and capacity to imagine the otherliness.
