...You have to let the material tell you what to do and sink into that world. That will tell you ALL the things to do. - David Lynch

It’s a dangerous thing not to have enough knowledge of what’s gone before. But it’s a dangerous thing to have too much knowledge of what other people have done. Pretty soon you can’t do anything because they say “that’s already been done”. And you say, “I can’t think of anything new I might as well just stop because everything I do I know where I got it and I know who did it.” And you can’t work, you can’t think like that.

(subjective takeaways) Frictionless design and automation will inherently be devoid of ethics, but also pleasure. It is empty for the privileged and horrifying for the marginalized. Pleasure gets attacked on both sides. It is too inefficient for capitalists but gets co-opted by them for profit. That is then cancelled by critics.
