About

a 10-minute film

Despair and anxiety accompanied with a peculiar societal aftertaste press on us to be someone else. To act against one’s own will and look for momentary satisfaction in delight.

Perversity as an example of the state of current soul…

Resentment compared with envy, characterized as hidden admiration to the man who himself obstructs our happiness.
Admiration as happy “deprivation” of oneself, envy is unhappy assertion of oneself.
(source: Wikipedia / Kierkegaard / Sickness unto death)

Socrates defines a sin as ignorance.

“Act according to your faith.”

The individuality itself becomes a collective psychosis in its core.

The possibilities for despair might come from the disproportion of Self in the relation (relations) to necessity and option, to synthesis as the reality. If Self is in contrast only to a possibility: one’s despair is not to have the necessity. While on the other hand, if Self is in contrast only to necessity: one is in despair of the loss of relation to possibility and becomes a slave for whom the possibility is consequently a panacea. The only realistic remedy in this stage is to make the given “Self” realize that one can only helped by oneself.
In unwillingness to be one’s self is a weakness and a loss of relation to the perpetuity. This kind of despair is symptomatic of “woman’s despair”, which is more instinctive and more defined in the relation to their counterpart. Therefore, when this relationship is terminated, it leads to despair of unwillingness to be one’s self.
The motivation of such a desperate Self becomes lost in efforts of trying to be someone else in a vigorous and unilateral passion. This despair corresponds to the concept of man’s despair which is less intertwined with their counterpart and if a partnership is terminated, he wants to be a dreamed Self, but which is more or less disguised act of unwillingness to be one’s self. The despair to become “one’s self” is manifested by the strongest defiance and it often leads to the man disregarding his own limits. Self who desires to become “one’s” self is in its essence only transitional, temporary and, therefore, considers everything experimental, lacking seriousness and can be discontinued at any time. In such instability, Self, despite its autarky, frankness, turbulence and ataraxy, gets lost and begins to feel hatred after some time.
The Sickness Unto Death is a book by a Danish philosopher Soren Kierkegaard written in 1849 under the pseudonym, Anti-Climacus. It deals with despair which is subsequently compared to a sin.
