No Where Near the End, or, No notes Towards Trading the Future

by b.h. Yael

Fuse, Nov. 2002, v. 25, no. 4, pp. 49-50

A meditation by the author, during the course of making a video, on the apocalypse vs. personal death, the apocalypse as political struggle, religion vs. spiritualism.

Apocalypse is inevitable. Through b.h. Yael ‘s work, Trading the Future, apocalypse is a paucity of vision, “it is the possibility that God gives up, rather than a god that values abundant life.” We believe in the end more than other things we believe, maybe it is because everything has its beginning and end, its rise and fall, it is a question of choosing life over death.
