unlike the human will

I scribbled this down when I visited the Guggenheim in 2011.

“The phenomenon of the encounter is momentary…In discontinuous, momentary flashes of light, it liberates human beings from the one-sideness and seclusion of the ego, if only for a moment. Unlike the human will, which always desires to define things and give them meaning or a place in history, the state of the world unto itself always teaches us that things are certain and indefinite.” – Lee Ufan
