Soundscape "Strucke Back" by Scanner from Pavillion d' Armide
The presenting work explores the struggle within ourselves to break free from the constraints of determinism in our search for free will, unaware it is an illusion.
This work is premised on the writings of Baruch Spinoza (1632-1677) and the concept of flow from Buddhist philosophy. As Spinoza states humans presume themselves to have free will, while being unable to understand the reason why they act as they do. Spinoza's philosophy has a similarity to buddhist thought in that any notion of a separate and distinct self is an illusion.
