The Labyrinth of Solitude - revroundexe


Solitude is the profoundest fact of the human condition. Man is the only being who knows he is alone.

BrightSilence: binary in the first video is "you mortals are now worthy"

Who knows what true happiness is? Not the conventional word but the naked terror. To the lonely themselves, it wears a mask. The most miserable outcast hugs some memory or some illusion.

White Oleander - revroundexe
Don't attach yourself to anyone who shows you the least bit of attention because you're lonely. Loneliness is the human condition. No one is ever going to fill that space.

  2. lol, I guess we were racing each other on this one. You got the first round, although I found the above myself.

    SE... South East? just a suggestion, did you look up the coordinates yet?

  3. the coordinates are from the location that the video indicates, adak island:


    and about the SE thing, i have the feeling we'll be getting more videos in the next days with more letters.

  4. Just checked them out myself.

    We'll see, any speculation on whether this is related to anything?

  5. not that i know of, i started watching his videos because he subscribed to me, but i've been kinda disconnected from fanvideos lately, i'll just have to get back in the game

  6. [from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Labyrinth_of_Solitude]
    The Labyrinth of Solitude (Spanish: El Laberinto de la soledad) one of Octavio Paz’s most famous works, is a collection of nine essays: ‘The Pachuco and other extremes’, ‘Mexican Mask’, ‘The Day of the Dead’, ‘The Sons of La Malinche’, ‘The Conquest and Colonialism’, ‘From Independence to the Revolution’, ‘The Mexican Intelligentsia’, ‘The Present Day’ and ‘The Dialectic of Solitude’. The book’s first publication was in 1950 but after 1975 some editions included the essay ‘Post data’ which discusses the massacre of hundreds of Mexican students in 1968.
    Paz observes that solitude is responsible for the Mexican’s perspective on death, ‘fiesta’, and identity. Death is seen as an event that is celebrated but at the same time repelled because of the uncertainty behind it. As for the fiestas, they express a sense of communality, crucially emphasizing the idea of not being alone and in so doing helps to bring out the true Mexican that is usually hidden behind a mask of self-denial. This represents the way in which the Mexicans have inherited two distinct cultures, the indigenous and the Spanish, but by denying one part of their identity they become stuck in a world of solitude.

    From the essay ‘The Conquest and Colonialism’ onwards, Paz makes a detailed analysis of Mexican history beginning with a look at their Pre-Columbian culture and in particular reflecting on the 1910 Revolt. In his analysis, he expresses how the humanists take a primary role as the intellectuals of the country. His major criticism is that to be an intellectual it is necessary to distance oneself from the subject that you are studying so that the argument remains critical yet rational and objective. While the intellectual gets more involved with the political environment, his arguments can often become influenced by other factors such as political motivation and pressure to conform.

    "El Laberinto de Soledad" is also the title of a popular song by Mexican rock group Botellita de Jeréz.

  7. Is there any background story / context available to go with these puzzles, or are these videos the first things seen?
