The evanescent bridge of Knowledge

The evanescent bridge of Knowledge

Knowledge is based on daily enrichment by the flowing real, rather than an accumulation of dogma, necessarily forming part of the past.

Knowledge is a continuous bridge between the momentous known galloping towards the unknown.

Knowledge is a trans-formative process which is double headed: it is born by an evanescent past, appearing as the new, which is doomed to become immediately evanescent.

Thus, focusing only on the past is fruitless ,as it is equally fruitless to focus on the non-existent future.

Only the ever built evanescent bridge between past and future is of relevance.

The mind avoids becoming dogmatic or swept away by personal fantasy or imagination.

In order to adapt the path of the evanescent bridge, one has to annihilate the principle of territorial belonging, which is the natural prison of the non-evolved awareness.


About Dr. Dorit Kedar

Forced to continuously change nations, cultures and schooling - I had to develop a wider sense of communication, a way of thinking-feeling-behaving which stresses the common denominators. The need to adapt new landscapes and land-souls has taught instinctive means to overcome separatism, prejudices, dogmatic beliefs and suspicions. While looking for the common gathering denominators, I have also increased the ability of perception and individuation. Being constantly in estranged places has triggered psychological processes to turn the unfamiliar into familiar. As an art critic in the Israeli press, a curator, a writer - have always dealt with the otherness, the different and the infinite variety of the Existent. My Book of Peace is the result.
