“Incidents themselves are neutral”

It’s a bit startling to see how much time has gone by since my last post here. I’ve been distracted by work–both businesses have been very busy–and by the slowly unfolding and worsening news from Japan, and as a result haven’t found the inclination to post anything, I guess.

Anyway: I found Chris’s “experiments” videos inspiring; here’s the latest (and last, he says) if you haven’t seen them:

As a result I’ve been thinking about setting up similar systems for similar endeavors, but haven’t actually gotten to the point of doing anything. I spent most of the recent weekend doing origami, swapping out the main hard drive in my music PC (the old one was annoyingly noisy), and staring into space. At some point, while perusing Pink Tentacle, I ran across this video by World Order, a Japanese music/dance group:

(Watch both of those in a bigger format if you can; my blog restricts images to a width of 450px but both videos are available in HD.) Genki Sudo, the leader, left this comment below the video:

The unprecedented disasters unfolding in Japan; earthquakes, tsunami, and nuclear explosions, will somehow change things to come. And to send my message about this, I have expressed it here with WORLD ORDER.

These disasters can be interpreted as a turning point for civilization. I think that we have arrived at a time of revolution, shared with all the people of the world, in today’s society, economy, and political systems.

Incidents themselves are neutral. I believe that every single one of us, wandering through this deep darkness, can overcome anything, if only we let go of our fear, and face the it all in a positive light.

The world is not going to change. Each one of us will change. And if we do, then yes, the world will be changed. It is darkest right before the dawn. Let’s all rise up to welcome the morning that will be so very bright for mankind.

Go ahead, try to summarize yourself in a sentence or two.


  1. The World Order video is terrific! So nice to see a video that isn’t computer generated/modified (As far as I can tell). Well worth watching in full screen HD.

  2. Wow… That is awesome. I wasn’t sure about the lack of video hijinks ’til I watched the making of and a blooper reel from a tribute version… Really, really cool.

  3. The one bit that puzzles me is near the beginning, when they lift people up from the floor by their shoulders. There doesn’t seem to be quite enough effort involved, and how would someone stay so rigid?
