at some art talk and the lecturer just slipped and said "Hieronymus Cock"
based on Hieronymous Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights.
There are too many people on this earth, why do we ever have to give birth? To more pain and more strife, this world is already balancing on a knife. People's pleasure can't always outweigh their pain, for a moment's measure is it worth it, or is it in vain? For a lifetime of not getting what we desire, then passing that on forevermore, have we not been here before? Let's just stop, take in these delights, and stop anticipating more nights.

Historians, faced with this kind of phenomenon, are bound to want to place it in a ‘cultural’ frame. The work they do (the habit of mind they exemplify) inevitably shifts attention away from the imagination, which has no history, to ideology, which has; ideology being the name we have for allowed, repeated, legitimate imaginings – ways of picturing things that do not destabilise the world as it is, or don’t do so too much. And, of course, the historians are right. Ideology rules. The Nassau humanist ‘recuperates’ the Tree Man. All I would say by way of qualification is that ideology needs the imagination – including, occasionally, the kind of extremity of imagining we find in Bosch – to renew itself. It is the particular nature of the extremity in Bosch – the texture, the mechanics, the detail, the difficulty – that seems to me still in need of description.
Alien but the concept art was done by Hieronymus Bosch somehow.
