Imagine a difficult, hardly bearable situation, one almost impossible for our spoiled human senses, accustomed as they are to the best and favourite. To adapt to an intolerable positionality presumes to accept what previously thought of as impossible, to assimilate yourself, to accept the challenge of an unpleasant stimuli aroused by realities or conditions that we have no impact upon. Absolution

Imagine a difficult, hardly bearable situation, one almost impossible for our spoiled human senses, accustomed as they are to the best and favourite. To adapt to an intolerable positionality presumes to accept what previously thought of as impossible, to assimilate yourself, to accept the challenge of an unpleasant stimuli aroused by realities or conditions that we have no impact upon. Absolution to the challenge and the relief towards the inconvenience is carried by the predispositions we distinct within, understand, tolerate, and define the motive of reciprocity, the responsiveness of impulses, a desire to change circumstances controlling or dominating us. The behavioural process takes place in the complexity of differentiating between sensory perceptions and mentally associative whilst coordinating, understanding, recognising, inventing, initiating, testing the incentives, examining the reversibility – in learning of innovative tactics in the relationship between sensory perception and (self) engagement aimed to will achieve self-relief and the liberation. The presence of one dilemma is allowing for a probability of different solutions - each problem is integral, multidimensional, developmental, thus strategic, somehow spontaneously aimless, therefore of a relevant purpose only as focused narratively. Imbued with an anthropocentric concern for our well-being in the contemporary anthropologically regulated or scattered world, let us not forget that that what keeps us alive, but also the animals more or less healthily, is all the same, the sufficient amount of food, water, and oxygen in the air and waters.
