I invented the word arciense because i thought it described me very well.
Whenever i went on the internet, and had to create an account, i would use arciense as a username. I even named my blog arciense for a while. I felt that this word described me so well that it could almost define me: art+science = arciense.
And the truth is that i’ve always had a hard time accepting the fact that i am passionate about art and science at the same time.
It’s as if my brain was programmed to think about it as something weird, or impossible. Something that is not supposed to happen.
But it happened. And now, i say that it is possible. This has been and will always be a part of me. It doesn’t have to be wrong.
Knowledge is knowledge.
Every piece of information is connected to another, in a way that we cannot visualize or intellectualize. It just happens.
Knowledge does not have to fit in categories, and to be possible within boundaries that only exist in our minds.
It is possible to love art as well as science. It doesn’t have to be something that’s bothering me. It’s just who i am. Once i learn how to accept that, i can liberate myself from me. From the illusion of having to be something that is right. There is no right. There is no wrong.
Being does not have to conform to any exterior norm.
Just being. Just living.
