Through a wider deeper understanding of the world, the student finds his/her place within it. Achieves independence within a social network.
What I am can exist within a greater social network. Generation can also be understood as regeneration, continuous reinvention, an essentially creative condition. New, fresh ideas should lead one ever onwards. The counterlife force or negative shadow is replication, appropriate on a cellular level but not as a model for society. Our sense of uniqueness, of individuality is endlessly challenged by the replications of our world. Mass production, electronic gadgetry, branding, cloning etc is entirely based on repetitions of repetitions. As individuals, we struggle to uphold the original, to maintain our independence in the vast, endlessly chugging machinery of society.
