Think about myself and others, about memory and recognition, about reality of us who live in an information society. Also, think about our future, such as politics, society, and unpredictable natural disasters.
The more I think about them, the more I realize that "this world" is full of ambiguity and uncertainty.
It is not negative thinking, the state of "ambiguity" and "uncertainty" is the possibilities for the fluid unknown as far as I perceive the world.
Using my own existence as a coordinate axis, I question how the world is and its possibilities.
