Renevatio and the problem with living things
The problem with being alive is to stay that way you need a fairly steady diet of something to consume that acts as fuel to keep you in that state.
Imagine then, for a moment, what it would be like if this source of sustenance was taken from you.
The slow starving, wasting away, gradually you are reduced to something barely living.
Then you die.
This is not limited to a physical death caused by a lack of hamburgers, rice and other culinary delicacies. Peoples needs differ.
Some have a mental stimulus, that brightens each day and gives them reason to rise and shine. Losing that reason is no different to losing physical food. Except the mind dies first and when the mind gives up, the body follows.
Running out of physical food ( depending on the circumstance ) can vary in severity from a problem to a catastrophe. Perhaps you simply need to learn to hunt or perhaps eat berries. Chances are you can pick up the pieces and carry on.
Mind food .. I’m not sure about that, I suppose one could pick up some inspirational literary gems and hope for the best, but it’s certainly a far more worrying state to be in.
This piece is something I created shortly after the secondary hard drive in my PC failed, that in itself was quite traumatic as it took a lot of un backed up photos and work with it.
The image was entitled Renevatio, Latin for restoration, It was meant to be a symbol of me getting all my information back. Now it has become a symbol of restoration of my mind food that has run out.
I’m not expecting miracles tho, personally I think it’s all just too late
ps. Ultimately I never posted it, maybe I was superstitious, but as it happened the drives data was successfully recovered, even that has failed to fill the void
