I once dismissed the value of art.Submitted by mingeem on Mon, 05/05/2014 - 16:20
I often found it to be a waste of time and resources. By focusing exclusively on technical and scientific fields, I realize I've become nothing more than a self-aware machine. Machines are simply tools to be utilized by others for their intentions, not my own.
What a waste of self-awareness!
Over the past few months, I have extensively searched my soul. I have made an effort to better prioritize what I value. Technology should aid us from menial tasks in life so we are free to enjoy the human experience. Art is an appreciation of the experience; a reflection of awareness.
Ancient societies understood the value of art. Through it they achieved higher consciousness, however this knowledge has been lost over the years. Therefore, I plan to return to school in order to study archeology, and perhaps restore purpose to a life once restrained by the bondage of neglected potential.
