The boundaries of social norms are affected by controlled forms of learning and education.

The functioning of such cognitively affected systems is to the interest of the decision makers

and impedes the freedom of thought. What has been socially venerable and learnt intuitively gives

the putatively correct answer. No eyes are necessary any more to recognize the line of 2

in the middle between 1 and 3 on a folding rule. The question nevertheless remains: how thick is the line of 2?

And can there be mistakes, even if it is as thick as an atom?


The boundary is affected by a prisoner's dilemma.

By two poles that are sentenced to death leading through space.

Both are executed, one after the other, on one day.


The author needs no education. He is bleeding.

Only the boundary has survived.


JAK, 2012




사회 규범의 경계는 학습과 교육이라는 형태의 제어에 의해 영향을 받고 있다. 이러한 시스템은 의사 결정권자의 권력으로,

생각의 자유를 통제하는 기능을 한다. 우리가 사회적으로 신뢰하는 그간의 학습은 본능적으로 추측을 기반한 정답을 만들어낸다.

눈금자에서 1의 눈금과 3의 눈금 사이에 2의 눈금이 있다는 것을 알기  위해 꼭 두 눈으로 확인할 필요가 있을까.

그럼에도 불구하고 물음은 여전히 남아있다: 2의 두께는 얼마인가?

그리고 만약 그 두께가 원자처럼 거의 없는 경우라면 오류의 가능성이 없을까?


경계는 죄수의 딜레마이론을 내제한다.

처형의 두 막대를 통해 그 공간은  나뉘어진다.

하나씩 차례로 둘은 하루만에 처형된다.


그 작가는 교육을 필요하지 않는다. 그는 피를 흘린다.

단지 그 '경계' 만 살아 남았다.


잭 2012




Die Grenzen gesellschaftlicher Normen sind geprägt durch gesteuerte Lern- und Erziehungsformen. Das Funktionieren solch kognitiv beeinträchtigter Systeme liegt im Interesse der Entscheidungsträger und erschwert die Freiheit im Denken. Das gesellschaftlich Tradierte und Erlernte gibt intuitiv die vermeintlich richtige Antwort. Es sind keine Augen mehr notwendig, um auf einem Meterstab den Strich von 2 als die Mitte zwischen 1 und 3 zu erkennen. Dennoch bleibt die Frage: wie dick ist der Strich von 2? Und kann es Fehler geben, selbst wenn er so dick ist wie ein Atom?


Die Grenze ist geprägt durch ein Gefangenendilemma.

Durch zwei zum Tode verurteilte Pole die einen Raum ausloten.

Beide werden hingerichtet, einer nach dem anderen, an einem Tag.


Der Autor benötigt keine Erziehung. Er blutet.

Nur die Grenze hat  überlebt.
