Möbius is a highly disorienting city characterized by the random trajectories of its citizen.

It’s a city where you can’t project your future nor envisage your past. All you are left with is present, the contemplation of the present choice.

Constrained to movement by their needs, each citizen is pushed from place to place.

Disorientation gives way to hypnosis, a strange feeling of happiness.

Möbius worships present time as the most precious good of all, movement as a way of living, randomness as a guarantee of freedom.

Art. 1 No person shall have private property, nor be attached to any personal belonging.

Art. 2 Economy shall be based on barter.

Art. 3 All citizen shall embrace repetition of time, the routine of the days.

Art. 4 No person shall have any belief, but the certainty of the present time.

Art. 5 All citizen shall embrace movement.

Here landmarks is entirely prosaic; no doubt the market is also a central cite of our western city; but in Tokyo merchandise is in a sense undone by the station’s instability: an incessant departure thwarts its concentration; one might say that it is only the preparatory substance of the package and the package itself is only the pass, the ticket that permits departure. (…) Thus each district is collected in the void of its station, an empty point-of-influence of all occupations and its pleasures.

In many contemporary musical works, repetition aims at freeing itself from any « telos ». Repetitive music, born in America in the 60’s, adopts a composition based on the repetition of short melodic, harmonic or rhythmic patterns. We call them « postmodern » musics ; this qualification seems to suit to music based on beat where time seems to vanish to the advantage of landscape and space.

In smooth space, the line is therefore a vector, a direction and not a dimension or metric determination. It is a space constructed by local operations involving changes in direction. These changes in direction are likely to be due to the variability of the point to be attained.

The streets of this city have no names. There is of course a written dress, but it has only a postal value, it refers to a plan (by districts and by blocks, is no way geometric), knowledge of which is accessible to the postman, not to the visitor: the largest city in the world is practically unclassified, the spaces which compose it in detail are unnamed.

For there to be a mastery of the real (in this case the reality of adresses), it suffices that there be a system, even if this system is apparently illogical, uselessly complicated, curiously disparate: a good bricolage can not only work for a very long time, as we know; it can also satisfy millions of inhabitants inured, furthermore, to all the perfections of technological civilization.

By careful planning we could have an environment in which the human mind and spirit may either relax or find the stimulus and delight which leads to creative activity... This series of forms, these ideas, shall not be sealed or enclosed by some limiting scheme or statistical or sociological theories regarding the activity of the people, but in their incompleteness the place will leave to people themselves the possibility of developing new experiences for themselves.

Surrounded by a world full of wonder and forces, whose law man may define, may want to understand but never decipher, which reaches him in only a few fragmentary harmonies and which suspends his soul in a continuous state of unresolved tension, he himself conjures up the missing perfection in play. He makes himself a tiny little world in which the cosmic law is evident within strict lim- its, yet complete in itself and perfect in this respect: in such play, man satisfies his cosmogonic instinct.

The fear and anguish caused by this loss of sensory and spiritual points of reference are only the necessary prelude to the pleasure of discovering new sensations, emotions and ideas that transform us. Immersed in the entanglement of the world, our body becomes the centre of situations. Induced by our contact with the surroundings, an intoxication suddenly envelops us in emotional atmospheres that bring us to life.
