Two Cheers For Boredom
These days, “the state of permanent receptivity“ has become the birthright of anyone with a smartphone. We are under constant assault by “interestingness“. Kracauer’s remedy was simple: “extraordinary, radical boredom“ could reunite us with our heads. “On a sunny afternoon when everyone is outside, one would do best to hang about in the train station or, better yet, stay at home, draw the curtains, and surrender oneself to one’s boredom on the sofa“ he wrote. Only then could one flirt with ridiculous, embarrassing, unscripted ideas, achieving a “kind of bliss that is almost unearthly.“ He went on, “Eventually one becomes content to do nothing other than be with oneself, without knowing what one actually should be doing.“ - Evgeny Morozov
