Chilefors is a Swedish artist who explores the theme of confusion and its subordinate states of dissociation, turbulence, transitions, transmutation and its overarching psychological & ontological implications. Paradox, doubt and polarisation has always been ubiquitous, but with the (still) recent emergence of internet (and its subsequent inflation of multiple perspectives) its salience is ever more dazzling. Admitting and expressing confusion, then, is the first step onto actually paving a way towards omnipotence, through a kind of omni-directional dialectical process. The human in its current form has no possibility of reaching such states by itself, however, art is just a cultural shaping before the merge with the artificial general intelligence which possibly can be (in parallax with) omnipotence, or at least greater sums of data.
1. Consciousness is for experiencing,
2. Hence the goal is to experience as much as possible - to figure out what the universe and being is. The quest cannot be verified as as meaningless until all data is gathered as we have no clue to what the metaphysics are (and its purpose) until the omni-data has been reached.
3. Confusion is always the initial (human) state when in contact with novel data.
With the inception of artificial intelligence, consciousness can now be imbued into objects - our tools are now seemingly conscious. Perhaps it was the will of the universe all along; to make everything more conscious, even the minerals, intelligent life was the prerequisite.
Alongside the unfolding of metamodern thought, that came after the (sometimes non sequitur) post-modern school, a direction for humankind has been proposed. Even if things are solely ironic or hollow there must be an impetus trying to unfold the meta-meaning of why it is excessively hollow or ironic. There must be a hyper awareness of meaning - a vision that looks at the seemingly meaningless and finds overarching meaning, humans have then embedded meaning into our metaphysics and is as real as anything else. The striving is always in the name of the data collection impetus (the road to omnipotence) which is a naïve quest as no one knows where it will take us apart from confusing reactions to the stimuli. This is the function of consciousness in relation to the greater whole as no other component has experiential processing.
Occasionally the psychological archetypes in the shape of animals visits us, they are different parts of the psyche with different ambitions. All of them has to be included. The anima-archetype is of outmost importance because of its psychological representation of everything the self hasn't yet associated itself with yet, i.e the lacking parts of omnidata (on a metaphysical level). But be wary: in the internet age it is easy to get encumbered by the excessive consumption of information. Confusion will smite us soon enough and the zoo cages bust open.
