Excellent craftsmanship, very stream-of-consciousness, very thoughtful and yet very careless, all at the same time. I will almost certainly purchase from this artist again.

About

We've been selling goods for a long time

We started our shop a long time ago. Before that, we had another shop that was suspended from the etsy community. Enough about that! We have to live in the now, as it's said (by many wise men and women). And the present is now, as I'm writing this, and you're reading it. Two different moments though, but both are now, we're told to believe. A now mediated through writing, so whoever (whatever? robots?) access the media will replay this now that I'm writing. So, does it mean that the now isn't really now, it would appear so, since you read this long after we've written it (I'm writing it with a monkey on my shoulder, giving me advice). And then you have relativity, of time, which leaves a whole lot wanting of the absolute now. But we have personal nows, smaller and better, no? So when we write "for a long time", nobody knows what that means, it could be only moments in your personal time. How is this text saved, these days we don't know if something is automatically saved or we have to press a button - that must be rather awkward for the cloud masters. Us, we're just small clouds, a shop in the clouds, in the clutters also. A general notion store is an old concept, from the times when the village had only one store and so had to have a little bit of everything - like Oleson's Mercantile in the TV-series "Little House on the Prairie". Anyway, is this saved or not? - the eternal question... The largest prime, per 2016, is 2^74,207,281-1, a number of 22 million digits, is it a coincidence that 74+207=281? Yes, it is. By the way, we also want to say that... wait, I'm checking my notes... that we're proud that we can read, for each word we know, so much we don't suspect them of anything, not even for being arbitrary. Finally, we would like to conclude our story with a few words for the wise: 1) Those who live life to the fullest are often under the death threat more than those who don't create a life-death situation. The best thing might be to be at peace with yourself, something that involves neither life nor death. 2) Shouldn't there be an easy way to beat random? I mean by choosing the opposite, as random equalises over long time? Say you play with a dice and 6 turns up, you should then choose not-6 since 6 has a little less chance in turning up in the future. No, the chance is the same as before. Really? So what can we say about the outcome 6 we got? Only that it was random, that it might as well have been something else. Yes, but still, over time the outcome is equalised so that a 6 would mean bigger chance for non-6 in the future, no? No. I don't understand. Neither do I! (The monkey and me had this conversation in our respective nows). Is the video uploaded now? How long time do they need to process it?? It's a small video, have a look. A shop in the now, in the clouds and clutters of nows.
