Dosnoventa: We Were Never Born

Dosnoventa: We Were Never Born

Il y a quelques années, nous étions invités à la présentation du nouveau siège de Dosnoventa à Barcelone.

À cette occasion, Dosnoventa a montré une vidéo excelente, intitulée We Were Never Born que nous avons l’honneur de vous présenter ici. Il s’agit d’un courtmétrage genial qui vous fait réfléchir, voler et qui vous donnent terriblement envie de prendre le vélo et fuir la routine de tous les jours. Images filmées d’une seule prise dans les montagnes, paysages incroyable, caméras lents et une voix off hypnotisant tout spectateur qui récite les paroles du poète et écrivain Jack Kerouac.



Transcription de la voix off: “I have lots of things to teach you now, in case we ever meet, concerning the message that was transmitted to me under a pine tree on a cold winter day. It said that Nothing Ever Happened, so don’t worry. It’s all like a dream. Everything is ecstasy, inside. We just don’t know it because of our thinking-minds. But in our true blissful essence of mind is known that everything is alright forever and forever and forever.

Close your eyes, let your hands and nerve-ends drop, stop breathing for 3 seconds, listen to the silence inside the illusion of the world, and you will remember the lesson you forgot, It is all one vast awakened thing. I call it the golden eternity.

We were never really born, we will never really die. It has nothing to do with the imaginary idea of a personal self, other selves, many selves everywhere: Self is only an idea, a mortal idea.
I know this from staring at mountains months on end. They never show any expression, they are like empty space, but the emptiness of space will never crumble away because it was never born.”
Jack Kerouac.
