Because...

Our weightlessness crushes us,
Our conveniences control us,
Our speed steals our time,

And our outrage is exhausting,
Our self-denial a self-indulgence...

We submit the following truths.

Use is not Importance.
Eternal is not Precious.
Obvious is not True.

Or, (more succinctly):

Frivolity is Essential.


And so we refuse to...

Measure worth by demand,
Measure virtue by function,
Measure accomplishment by attainment.

Instead we resolve...

...to find purpose in the useless.
...to delight in our detritus.
...to transcend the practical.

To expand the everyday, every day.
