a post-modern birdhouse

or an old non-/no longer functioning plasma-thingado that was set out in a cruel, heartless way by some evil plasma physicists (), but which has found a new home and purpose now as a birdhouse ()

for you, other than on tv or in cinema, do "moments" exist? would people have considered their own or other's experiences in terms of "moments" before the invention of photography, cinema & television?

Most probably so, but not exactly, if you get my drift, or even if you don't. Can you please repeat the question?

yes
there is the moment of insight or revelation, sometimes good, sometimes bad, that comes like the piling of wave on wave until the water breaches the lip of some dry rockpool. this can be a moment during some ceremony or other, or it can be a moment standing doing the washing-up, or a moment while traveling, or whateverthefwk. the moment can expand to fit the size of the revelation, or shrink to hold it snugly. it's the point where the curve becomes asymptotic.


yes
for the above reasons, and because I'm not a solipsist, this is a common human occurrence.

Oh, sure, I experience moments all the time. Sometimes they are good, and sometimes they are bad. Sometimes they seem long, and other times it's short. I think this may indicate that they're figments of my imagination, but still, that is a way of existing.

...and with emotional & deeply moving, john williamsesque, orchestral score quite like the one for E.T.?

Yes, there are, they do happen just *schwupps*, and become a kinda crystallisation point in memory for something (upon which often crystallises more later on).

Only one of my moments has a soundtrack attached - for a liveband played a rememberable (an eerily fitful, I later realised) tune just then, nothing Spielbergian whatsoever.

Dunno?, but media/art might have chosen the word for a reason. One would have to check that.

In German however we have a second word for moment: Augenblick (eye-glimpse) which I prefere and which I believe predates cinema and photography in describing such a flighty but sticking point in time.

admittedly i have a wee predilection to the german language but even so, this augenblick is an exceptionally beautiful word to my ear. and for that matter "eye-glimpse" is also a beautiful notion. thank you for your kind assistance in this matter.

yeh, those sicklysweet, gushing "kodak moments" in the 90's are also to blame the "moment"-hungry reportage of today
