Why do people continually offer “I agree” or “I disagree” – this binary response to thought? It shoves one’s personality in front of anything we try to look at together. What does it matter what you or I agree or disagree with? To what does it matter? It doesn’t matter to a film, a fashion design, a piece of architecture. Can’t we look at things and keep adding perceptions without deciding one of us must win over the others? A thing is ugly, it’s beautiful – yes it is both – let’s continue to love it and be horrified. Can we share nothing, unless we agree?
