Listening: Ken Wilber + Deepak Chopra conversation (I-N)
Last night I came across an old quote by Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, who said that what was most important in modern art, architecture and design was very often what was left out.
Here is another great quote, by the architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. He said: I don’t want to be interesting. I want to be good.
Those two views can work hand in hand. Leave out what is superficial, leave out what is merely interesting until at last you arrive at the good design/music/architecture etc….
My favorite part of the Wilber-Chopra conversation is where Deepak Chopra talks about the decaying and putrefied body of the caterpillar feeding an entirley new body…. and turning into a butterfly. Could that be metaphor for the struggle the world is going through at present?
