“He who see’s senses that he is seeing, he who hears senses that he is hearing, he who walks, senses that he is walking, and thus for all the other activities there is something that senses that we are exerting them (Agambenp32)”. Sensation is vital to a good quality of life. It is a link that we experience the world and the world experiences each individual.
Living well is a conscious effort when behaving in ways that exert high levels of energy, in metaphorical conscious state engaging with others, listening, talking, sitting still and being aren’t actions done in auto pilot. They’re actions that should be done with great detail and awareness of intentions and consequences. Awareness of one’s own existences is sweet when lived with depth and ethics, in relation to the world, universe, people, animals and objects.
Life isn’t the mere happenstance of birth its meaning is individual determined by each person but the quality of it should be good and fulfilling. The constant sensation of existence within a good person reinforces a place within the earth and a humble need to improve ones being. I think when people forget to live like their alive is when things go wrong, because it means to forget your power and what it means to exist with purpose.
Shared sensation of being is another concept that attaches individuals’ to each other in a more bonded way; to be conscious of others and what their existence means to you. My antidotal experience with shared sensation of being is non-awkward silence. In the event of only the atmosphere creating sound while being able to be comfortable with the silence and not feel the impulse to distract from the moment of quiet. Knowing both parties are alive, exist and share time and space willingly.
