the one who knows
Giacomo Piazzi & Ben Olsen

.

The movement of a number within a question:
“the softest substance is carried in the hardest.”
Though opaque in its machinery,
the Oracle speaks and offers itself as sacral.
Approach and ask!
“Who are you?” it responds.

-----

When we don’t know, we ask one who does. But what if there are millions of answers to a question?

Abandoning direct causality as an axiom, The One Who Knows addresses the subjective condition of a questioner directly, and helps erode the psychic repression at the hands of authority by moving the spiritual agency back into the hands of the user. It uses a combination of Google Web Search with the ancient Chinese divination text, the I-Ching, to create a unique result; the meaning of which is up to only the questioner to discern.
