The myth of artist's (b)lock I

The absence of materialization. The productivity of being blocked. When the body is confronted with warnings and reinforcements of memory activation that press one's to act, to produce, pressure in the creative process is felt. Time. Concept of useful time. Wasting time thinking. Action. Non-action. Thought-action. The thought is action. Incapacity of thought's materialization: the slap as ritualization, aggression that results from exteriority and interiority mating. Reaching productivity after the blockade.
