In contrast to Breton we believe that behind the false ethical and aesthetic, indeed metaphysical understandings which are out of contact with the vital interest of "man" we find the real, the materialistic ethics and aesthetics. One includes our needs, the other is an expression of our sensual desires. It is exactly in order to liberate the true ethics and the true aesthetics that we make use of "automatism."

No, what worries me is that I might in a sense adapt to this environment and come to be comfortable here and not resent it anymore.

But I am not afraid they are going to break my spirit.theodore kaczynski

When they are interrupted by obstructions, the first waves, flowing back, break up the formation of those which follow.vitruvius
