Yes, life hurts. But then again...

Don't get me wrong. I do not mean to disrespect anyone's troubles and concerns. Nor I mean to pretend that my life is without any rough corners. In fact, when I left work the other day on my way to the railway station, my mind was full of thoughts about all kind of things that were bothering me lately. The sun was setting down, making the jet stream clouds scattered sky look like a somewhat psychedelic fresco. I found myself stopping every once in a while, taking pictures of this bizarre urban scene and feeling that my smartphone camera is not doing justice with its beauty. And then, just about when I took the picture that you can see at the top of this card it hit me. Why can I even think that? How is it that I can appreciate this scene as beautiful? It wasn't the first time I've wondered about all kind of things, related to consciousness and how come that it exists at all, but this time was different. It was not some philosophical understanding. It was something else. Life is complex. No matter how you look at it, there is no escape from this fact. If you think your life is more complex than that of others, it's just because you don't live their life but yours. So yes, some of us have better lives than others, but if you think about it, it's just a matter of luck. It doesn't make the life of the more fortunate ones less complex. The more you have, the more you stand to loose. I arrived to the railway station. A pianist and a guitar player were playing Billy Holiday. And again it hit me. I can tell you all about sound waves and how and why they harmonize into chords, I can write you an article about Billie Holiday and why she was so important to jazz music, but that will never capture the simple meaning of "A pianist and a guitar player play Billie Holiday".
I went up to the platform. The twilight light made everything look like a drawing. Now I felt as if someone was throwing little pebbles on my strongest convictions. Not large enough to shatter anything, just a gentle disruption, but one that sent a very clear message: "Think again, how come you can appreciate all that?"
A train came in, on the adjacent track. The psychedelic sky reflected from its windows. And again the pebbles started ticking. Suddenly I knew the answer. So don't get me wrong. I don't mean to disrespect any kind of trouble or misery. There are many things in this world that could use some fixing. Maybe even lots of fixing. But when we want all the bad stuff to go away, aren't we are asking for a life, so simplified that it can't contain any beauty? What if everybody could feel at ease with some discomfort? I mean, isn't it crazy that we seek a life so comfortable and predictable, many times on the expense of others, and then we suffer because we can't appreciate any of it? So yes, life hurts. Life is complex and sometimes it looks like we can't make it trough. But then again, it is out of this complexity that our ability to appreciate life emerges. Isn't that the one true miracle? all the proof we ever need? What if we could all just settle for that?

The Real Reason for Supernatural Concepts
Remember back in 2013 when Kpop went into full supernatural concept mode? From EXO's Wolf, VIXX's On & On, Boyfriend's Bounce, etc, etc... there were vampires, aliens, werewolves galore. Nowadays in 2016, though, we're seeing a rise to realism. BTS dealing with drugs (I Need U) or Monsta X dealing with totalitarianism (All In) But, why? "Zombies are the perfect metaphor." (source) Basically, using the supernatural has always been a way of talking about real life issues, without actually bringing them up. For example, in Harry Potter House Elves would represent slaves, the discrimination and fear of werewolves represented how ridiculous racism is, etc. Fiction allows us to talk about important issues in a sly way. For example, VIXX's Hyde portrayed them as vampire-like, living in a spooky house and dark forest, growing black wings and almost being taken over by a monster. At its core, this is a song about dangerous relationships. A partner who is emotionally unstable, but charming. Hurting you but begging to have you back. This can be a metaphor for abusive relationships of all kinds. They repeat over and over that "that man isn't me, there is a crazy 'other me' inside of me." Just as abusers usually do after a moment of violent anger. Hiding this message behind the mask of "monsters" and "dark angels" makes it easier to consume and talk about. But take away the supernatural and its a serious issue they bring up. Another great example is Monster by Big Bang. They dress up as literal monsters, but talk about how just because they are different and not fitting into the society's mold they aren't bad people. It's an anthem for misfits, and a message to society to stop being so cruel. So why are we shedding the costumes now? Why are things suddenly more...real? We're done hiding. The problems can no longer stay hidden, we need to talk about them. No more using vampires and ghosts as metaphors, the general public is more comfortable discussing issues like depression, drugs, mental health, discrimination, etc. The move to realism means that we're being realistic about the problems - we're addressing them head on. That being said, there is nothing wrong with supernatural concepts being used to talk about issues! Often people can't understand something in its original form. For example, maybe someone doesn't see the need for LGBTQ+ rights. Give them a love story with a couple that is forced apart, never to be together (perhaps a vampire and a human??) because society says its unnatural. If while reading the story or watching the movie, that person feels upset about this poor couple torn apart by society, maybe they will see the correlation between their belief that gay marriage is wrong. Basically, I think that the constant changing of concept trends is fascinating and it means much more than we think!

MV Analysis/Theory: BTS and Nietzsche
"One must still have chaos within oneself, to give birth to a dancing star." - Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None, by Friedrich Nietzsche. (wiki on the book here) 1. For Whom You Shine The book begins with the quote: "You great star, what would your happiness be had you not those for whom you shine?" This clearly plays into the song lyrics, that they are nothing without the person they love. They offer their blood, sweat and tears to them, without this person to shine for, they are empty. 2. The Most Beautiful Moment in Life Nietzsche's writing often refers to the idea of eternal recurrence. This is the idea that all events in one's life will happen again and again, infinitely. "The embrace of all of life's horrors and pleasures alike shows a deference and acceptance of fate, or Amor Fati. The love and acceptance of one's path in life is a defining characteristic of the overman*. *Overman - Nietzsche thinks that it is important for every generation to overcome their humanity. To be better than it, to push forward and grow and defy the boundaries set by the mere fact that we're human. Someone who creates something new is an overman. Is Jin repeating his actions over and over again but changing it slightly each time? Are we witnessing the butterfly effect? (For example we see Jungkook on the bike again, the lilies from I Need U, etc) Will the most beautiful moment in life go on forever, and is it turning into a nightmare?
