To navigate is need, we must live too.

25 Mar

The phrase is not from Fernando Pessoa nor from a Brazilian composer, it was General Pompeu’s phrase to encourage his fearful sailors saying: “Navigare necesse, vivere non est necesse” and later it was also the Italian poet Petrarca in the fourteenth century.
The verses of Fernando Pessoa had the sense of confining his sense of way to creation, and in this sense of life is that we can make a parallel with the current Web browsers.
Besides the Web we have the GPS and numerous navigation instruments for ships, airplanes and spacecraft, which will soon also be tourist trips thanks to Tesla company (post).
Reflections for today must involve fears (there is a book by Martha Nussbaum), the options with many possible paths, the question of security and the transitions to a possible Web that fights the fake news, remembering that these are all problems previous to the Internet (1975) and the Web (1990), since it comes from the industrial revolution.
The issue of life that involves is the Society of Tiredness, put our mind and body under a barrage of stimuli that may seem beneficial but also lead to stress.
The modern man, the pause, the respite, or what Byung-Chull Han calls the “aroma of time”, I thank Portugal who gave me back this possibility for the rhythm of life, social security and especially the Portuguese lyrical soul.
All of this brings life back to life, but to put it in an agitated life without “aroma” is an effort that demands virtues, in the sense of virtue and in the sense of virtuous circles.
But navigating is necessary, almost for everything in life today and living, pausing and breathing as well.
