where triviality is perceived and enacted, there is not the dreaded no-meaning.
There is only: small meaning.
The virtue of this smallness is not so much a virtue as a mercy.
there are things with no impact, and yet these things find a reason to exist.
In such a way nature is safe to operate.
Where triviality is allowed, the eye for detail is cultivated spontaneously.
And, with the being in the details, triviality can stimulate the armour of the citizen.
Hence; soap, advertisements, sports, and all kinds of mimicry.
TV has salvaged us, from being unknowing slaves to knowing inferiors.
From knowing and willing participants to unknowing and unwilling participants.
It has made us live our traumas in the open and our sanity in the core of our unease.
And it has made us honest about aesthetics.
A great disgust has filled us! And a great taste along with it!
So spake ZARATHUSTRA.
