maşina bolboroseşte înainte de prăbuşire

We imagined ourselves isolated from the source of our existence. The fallout from this imaginative error is all around us: a quarter of the world’s mammals are threatened with imminent extinction; an acre and a half of rainforest is felled every second; 75% of the world’s fish stocks are on the verge of collapse; humanity consumes 25% more of the world’s natural ‘products’ than the Earth can replace – a figure predicted to rise to 80% by mid-century. Even through the deadening lens of statistics, we can glimpse the violence to which our myths have driven us.

The Dark Mountain e un proiect care îşi propune o repovestire a lumii, căutarea unor noi surse mitologice şi a unui destin care să refundamenteze omul în procesul său de desţărare de miturile moderne – progresul şi civilizaţia. O nouă Apocalipsă după Eco vine, iar metodele sale de exprimare sunt tot alegorice, dar asta doar ca să înţelegem noi, civilizaţii. Milenarismele postcreştine nu sunt derizorii, chiar dacă sintagma are un trecut premodern şi „iraţional”, aşa cum nu sunt derizorii nici gândurile despre moartea noastră individuală.

This time, the crumbling empire is the unassailable global economy, and the brave new world of consumer democracy being forged worldwide in its name. Upon the indestructibility of this edifice we have pinned the hopes of this latest phase of our civilisation. Now, its failure and fallibility exposed, the world’s elites are scrabbling frantically to buoy up an economic machine which, for decades, they told us needed little restraint, for restraint would be its undoing. Uncountable sums of money are being funnelled upwards in order to prevent an uncontrolled explosion. The machine is stuttering and the engineers are in panic. They are wondering if perhaps they do not understand it as well as they imagined. They are wondering whether they are controlling it at all or whether, perhaps, it is controlling them.
