Nirvana is the final extinguishing of the last vestiges of any notion of ‘I’ or ‘me’ or ‘mine’. It is the final destruction. The end of the conditions for new life.
We are now approaching the culmination of my forty days in this Tower and while I am still a long way from destroying myself completely, that is my ultimate aim.
So, in this spirit of self renunciation, I am now offering myself.
I believe it would be inconsistent of me to consider my person as having a special status in this collection of objects. So I now offer myself to you as the final object.
On August 5th, at the end of the 40 days, anyone who cares to may take me.
I promise to do my best to give myself fully. I undertake to do whatever I am asked by this new curator. They may treat me me exactly as they wish. My fate will be in their hands.
The kind of relationship this person wants to create will be up to them. They may use me purely for their own purposes, or they may choose to consider whatever fears and desires I may still have. The choice will be theirs.
For my part I will offer myself as a gift and attempt to observe the surrender of what I have normally considered to be mine.
Because you may have to make travel arrangements to come and collect me, I am giving you a few days to come forward with your proposals. Once all proposals have been gathered you will have 24 hours, from midnight to midnight (GMT+1) on Wednesday 5th August, to vote for one amongst these proposals. The recipient of this final item is then free to come and collect it at any time thereafter.
In the event that no one comes forward I will continue to work alone towards my own extinction.
