I go crazy just thinking about how we’ve evolved to the point of actually needing MECHANICAL SYSTEMS in architecture. We need CLIMATE CONTROL. Are we not of this Earth? Why do we put so much effort into creating these strange un-Earthly sterile synthetic interior worlds to exist inside of on a daily basis? Why do the whales not do this? Why do the buffalo not do this? Why can’t we just be content to live on this planet the way it is, and roam upon it, like all the rest of the living creatures? Are we actually a freakish insomnia-ridden impish race from some far-away universe, from some strangle little spotless planet light-years away that has no seasons, no rise or fall in temperature? No rain, no snow, no wind?
BANG BANG and the stupid shall inherit the Earth.
Why do we reject our wonderfully-complex Earth as though we have already finished destroying it? Why do we build as though, without our sinister climate-controlled vaults (perhaps ‘living tombs’ would be a better term for it), we would all fall to the ground, shrivel up and die? Why are we compelled to go through all this trouble to create “perfect environments” on a planet that was arguably created specifically to accommodate our existence just the way it is in the first place? Why do we do this???
I WANT TO KNOW WHY!
All I know is this. I would have been better off as a whale. THEY are the smarter creatures.
