1. We are epiphenomena to quantum events-and Friedrich Nietzsche's
philosophy strives to find ways to live and thrive in that knowledge.
The illusion of truth is revealed ironically through art. The
Dionysian principle sublimating the individual into the raw stuff of
life is hidden by the orderly process of the Apollonian principle that
hides Being(my word, not Nietzsche's) from our direct view.
2. The history of automobile design recapitulates Marshall MacLuhan's
oft qouted "the medium is the message". Early cars were derived from
carts and horsedrawn carriages. Now their design is drawn from over a
century's worth of design history, as well as other influences that
reflected popular tastes, art movements and the capabilities of
available technologies for design and production.
