At Sol, one part of the wall is painted in magenta.
This color, discovered by Goethe, is a combination of red and violet,
which respectively are the lowest and highest colors of the visible spectrum.
Red is most heavy with long wavelengths signifying Roughness.
Violet is light with short wavelengths signifying Delicateness.
Hence, in Japan, violet is commonly used to represent the highest rank.
The words, “reason is formed by the height of culture and the height of animality” represent this ideology;
when the extremities of the vulgar and the refined exist, instead of combining both and diving it in half,
it is the intuition of going both directions simultaneously.
This is what is referred to as the Middle Way in Buddhism, meaning when exact opposites exist,
one does not take what is in the center but encloses them both.
Sol’s aim to synthesize the man-made, contemporary and western, with the natural, antique and eastern,
alludes to the meaning of the color magenta, which signifies a mixture of opposite colors.
Thus, magenta is the symbol of the Middle Way.

輝読後、阿川弘之の『大人の見識』。
養老孟司『バカの壁』と同じことについて書いてある。
そういう意味で、輝も同様。
3人に共通するのは、腹の据わり具合。揺るがず。

こないだNHKで輝が、の下り、『美の壷』じゃなくて、『知るを楽しむ』みたいな番組やった。失礼。

夜友人が来たので、余り物の野菜を炒めてご飯。
その後、『大野一雄』のDVD鑑賞会。
全然わっからん。
笑いたいねんけど、笑ったら怒られそうな雰囲気ってなんやろ?
「お膳は僕のお母さん」って何世前のお話ですか?って感じじゃない?
って見てないと余計意味不明やわな。
ヒマな人、見た方がいいです。
