Can you read this text without stopping? Attention is a form of alienation – the point is to know what alienates you. That’s why we always look lost in looking for something – even when we only make a few imperceptible gestures, glued to small bright bubbles. You do not understand who is listening and talking, who works and who is having fun, who really finds something and who is just confused. Have you come here without moving your gaze? Really? Isn’t this effort to do one thing at a time truly unbearable? Look around you – how many other things attract your attention? Now look at yourself from above – can you see yourself?
The surfaces of the most densely populated regions on Earth are covered by a dense fog of messages, images and sounds. That’s where people move, interact, sleep. Sometimes more  intense noises are heard, quickly absorbed by this fog as it flashes and resounds. Seen from here the planet seems just too loud and distracted to survive – even the glaciers melt too slowly for someone to pay attention to them. Let’s go back to the ground and look closely – we’re all mutating… into something that’s very, very fast.
