I think therefore I am Descartes
I suffer therefore I may be Beckett
Rolling Stones 1965, I cant get no satisfaction
oAmerican blues went to Europe because couldnt be played in America
oAbout advertising
To feel anxious is element of hope
Anxiety wont leave you alone, is tension between hoping and giving up
oIs tension we prefer to depression
Vladimir and Estragon prefers anxiety then going in depression
oEstragon keeps insisting that better to hope than to lose hope
oWhen they talk about suicide concern that they both wont die because the branch is not
strong enough
oSame disembedded quality
oThey keep forgetting to being the rope
As you move into depression, get oscillation between defer and depression
oCrash, but look for reason to start hoping
Beckett perhaps is most important word in play
oComfort of pretending is form of deferral, distraction
Luckys speech is form of Descartes
oLucky is thinking
oWhen he goes into rant about thinking, it is killing Pozzo
oVladimir and Estragon is just stunned
oLuckys speech refers to something or not yet
oQualifies things out of existence
oNo content, bare skeleton
oWay that knowledge builds on itself
We are not sum of all facts, we are choices
Facts are not us
We are not the things we use to justify ourselves
o We are not the tools that we use
oWe live in experience, cant be recorded, we cant be solve for X, we are X
Godot at literature of 1950 is very much about not understanding through deferral and association,
but by what we define ourselves
Goals, objectives are artificial, deferrals
Idea that means justify the ends is not who we are
Waiting is awareness of being brought on by absence of doing
Beckett asking to take a break long enough to feel extinction between doing and being
oDepression is when doing takes over in awareness of being
Trying to get far away from ourselves
oCant get very far
How can you be at a future that has not happened yet
Vladimir and Estragon- being pushed to authentic of actual existence
Pepsi generation:
oProgress
oEfficiency
oPerfection
oSatisfaction
