Concrete. Solid. Certain and unchanging. Travelling on the motorway network, the miles of similarity is both reassuring and unsettling. The human condition is an ever-changing state and the a static certainty is abhorent. However, risk-adverse and fearful, perhaps it would be better if nothing ever changed.
With or without help the world will never stay the same. However these colossal monuments perhaps demonstrate our futile attempts to take control and bend the rules for our own advantage. Or perhaps it is simply a question of budget. An accountant’s pragmatic solution and globalised view. Enjoy.
