  1. Drifting

    Drifting is a driving technique where the driver intentionally oversteers, causing loss of traction in the rear wheels, while maintaining control from entry to exit of a corner. A car is drifting when the rear slip angle is greater than the front slip angle, to such an extent that often the front wheels are pointing in the opposite direction to the turn. As a motorsport discipline, professional drifting competitions are held worldwide and are judged according to the speed, angle and line taken through a corner or set of corners.

We stop breathing, choking on inevitability. 2. Life is literally everywhere Life is literally everywhere. All this looks like a single mechanism. Systematic movement of impulses, instincts.

In this I see a new manifestation of the universe of life. 3. Do you hear jazz You hear jazz. How the music sounds piercing your mind and thinking. Jazz is an energy that dissolves your brain and throws your thoughts into the abyss. As if the cigarette smoke is all that remains of our thoughts that burn out in us. This is the mood of the soul. This is the silence of the city and the romance of life. 4. Not being collected within is life within. Fauna of wild instincts that devour each other. Flora of emotions and feelings. Romantic landscapes of impressions. The evolution of thinking in one century. 5. Corporate giants Corporate giants are drifting away from reality.

Floating buildings are pure cynicism. It is levitation in dreams of greatness. Many of their own universe of skyscrapers are being formed where each floor is a stage of cynicism and blindness of the spirit. The universe is losing the basis of spiritual thinking. 6. Thinking is Thinking is a philosophical blender for awareness. It is insight that brings healing to our minds. 7. The brain as the basis of the technocracy of logic.

Only love is a bridge with the outside world. 9. Lonely people move in the void of nonsense. 10. We endure a whole storm of illusions within ourselves. A storm born of fear and despair. Like an explosion leading into hyperspace where hundreds of millions of fear scenarios are played. It’s like cinema, and you are a screenwriter who endures it as if wears virtual glasses.
