John Cage (1912–1992): composer, music theorist, writer, philosopher, artist and mycologist."I have spent many pleasant hours in the woods conducting performances of my silent piece...At one performance, I passed the first movement by attempting the identification of a mushroom....The second movement was extremely dramatic, beginning with the sounds of a buck and a doe leaping up to within ten feet of my rocky podium."Cage, John 1961, Silence, Wesleyan University Press, p. 276.
In Zen they say: If something is boring after two minutes, try it for four. If still boring, try it for eight, sixteen, thirty-two, and so on. Eventually one discovers that it’s not boring at all but very interesting.Cage, John 1961, Silence, Wesleyan University Press, Middletown, CT, p. 93.
