Peace & Chaos

Works here liken modern life to a multifaceted epitome of an electronic game (Tetris). It focuses on the stacked expectations (real or perceived) of everyday life that we set by involving us as players in a task-solving game. Modern day living is a multifaceted compendium stacked with expectations, real or perceived, engaging its players in a task resolving game.

 

Chaotic daily routines start early and end late. Routine programs are set before to be achieved as a “to do” list, and sometimes, sporadic isolated events occur to challenge the tranquil flow of routine. Is this the norm? Or an invited construct? As a result, one cannot help but wonder if this “busyness” is a modern day symbol status? Afterall, if your tasks do not define you, what does?

Neocleous raises the question of whether our hectic routines determine us, and how is the value of this choice determined?
