Our Anesthetic Intelligence is at work. Things are falling down all around us – too many young people do not feel uncomfortable with their own unemployment; too many employed people loose their job; too many employers and employees do feel comfortable with their professional alienation; too many human beings do not feel anything at all – but we seem not to sense it, like an out of use ear. We should appreciate every effort to renew our Aesthetic Intelligence, specially if it does not aim to bring us back to the previous comfort. For the kind of changes we have to face, restoration is not the right attitude. On the contrary, to abandon our usual perception standards (soaked with anesthetic) could surely help us to avoid any useless nostalgia.
