Many people want to know what is going on in Kanye West's mind. In addition to his music and his numerous media conflicts, the singer has a philosophical side.
During an interview with Hollywood Reporter, he revealed that he is working on a philosophy book about some of his deepest thoughts. We do not know yet when it will be released, but undoubtedly it will be a moment of revelation.
What's his book idea?
During the interview he gave a general overview of what the book and its main philosophical ideas will contain:
“I’m writing a philosophy book right now called Break the Simulation. And I’ve got this philosophy — or let’s say it’s just a concept because sometimes philosophy sounds too heavy-handed. I’ve got a concept about photographs, and I’m on the fence about photographs — about human beings being obsessed with photographs — because it takes you out of the now and transports you into the past or transports you into the future. It can be used to document, but a lot of times it overtakes [people]. People dwell too much in the memories. People always wanna hear the history of something, which is important, but I think it there’s too much of an importance put on history.”
Although in that fragment Kanye says that the past is not so important, he, in fact, speaks about the future. During the interview, he compares Kim Kardashian, his wife, to Marie Antoinette and predicts that the two of them will still be examples of life within 500 years or even more.
