"All" statements "are" true in some sense, false in some sense, meaningless in some sense, true and false in some sense, true and meaningless in some sense, false and meaningless in some sense, and true and false and meaningless in some sense.

Qualia in philosophy of mind is a concept that refers to the non-transferable experiences that each person experiences.
The words, they point out, generate consensus regarding their way of labeling what we live but they do not encapsulate the experiences themselves. What about those feelings and ideas that sometimes we are not able to categorize or understand? Like when-a-I-don't-know-what crosses us from a-I-don't-know-where.
Do you have any memories?
Becoming aware of the limitations with which we travel and communicate, personally, I think, helps us to appreciate our environment with different eyes. The dogmas, the conception of a mono-reality, conceiving existence from the corporate, institutional, news, religious or socially accepted as "normal" etc. generate templates in which we can adjust our minds and conceive an image and likeness of what someone else considers acceptable. Whether due to tradition, particular interests or simple ignorance, acquiring an identity with their already predetermined belief system is the most comfortable and simple.
Can you be more than a consoomer? What's next for "entertainment"?
Fire in the mind is a selection of audiovisual pieces, short films, video art, collage, film poetry, metaphorical essays… you categorize as you see fit.
The important thing is this heat, this hell that will cover you, to burn in its broad and symbolic sense.
I am not here to take anyone by the hand. I am not communicating here to explain what you are about to see. Would any of those present be wise enough to want to explain their experience of drinking coffee? No matter how many adjectives and words we use, we will never be able to recreate the sensation of the tongue and palate that they have when they come into contact with this warm liquid. Or is it possible?
The art that is about to go through you, finds its richness when confronted with the individuality of each spectator. Each one captures a part of their truth, and in the diversity, -in the multiplicity- of sensitivities we enrich ourselves.
Let each one think, let each one sit and ponder according to their mind. The programming is not finished, the different authors take us through fields that you will have to approach in your own way. Enjoy the game of the senses, enjoy the gift of being able to assign one meaning (or many). Let's enjoy co-creation.
