Reflective Reflex

Al Prexta. 111 8th Ave. 2017. acrylic on canvas.

The reflective reflex is a reflex, which is a reflective self projected onto itself. It is a simulation of its own, made by itself. A simulation is that which does not stop when the stories go away. Stories are responsible to our human desire for resolution, but a simulation is responsible only to its own laws and initializing conditions. A simulation has no moral, prejudice, or meaning. Like nature, it just is. How do they speak to each other?
