beyond nihilism

there is a problem in nihilist darkness
it is nothing more than a subtle form of desire …

consciousness cannot experience the same thing twice,

but that is exactly what desire asks:
an idealized experience in memory
and wanting to experience it

again, and again and again …

then there is that nihilist voice:
“you’ve seen it all,
there is nothing
there is nothing new
everything is empty”

in memory many experiences will be alike
stripped as they are of every colour
before being stored, neatly
in the database of experiences

but then there is an error in such reasoning:

consciousness cannot experience the same thing twice,

everyting is always new
and colourful
vibrant

and there is nothing else, but

this,

now,

here
