Description
The term “Learned helplessness” describes a state of mind incapable of influencing its future, and a vulnerable body inconsequential in its existence. This hapless body, assured of its impotence over all events good or bad, takes no action and sets no goals. It remains ever passive, and waits.

“The Cycle” offers a glimpse into a life surrendered to chance and randomness, in its natural cycle. It describes all beings laid on earth and told to await their fate, and became one with it afterwards.
