System theory

Art is the system learning about itself

It is learning that its actions have consequences
It is learning that what it values changes as energy moves through its being
Art offers the systems opportunities to check and review
It is why artists express their inner world
It is why writers and poets write about beauty, nature, society, connection
It is why singers sing protest songs
The system is always learning.

Without art it will forget what it is and lose its soul
