Soledad Buenos Aires

Edgardo Lois. Caminar por Buenos Aires es hoy una invitación a esquivar astronautas en tránsito hacia las naves donde terminan de romper las últimas ataduras con la terrena urbanía.

Volví a encontrarme con Soledad. Ella, la soledad, en mi Buenos Aires, la del regreso. Fue inevitable mirar el paisaje y el quehacer de las criaturas. Acallada la bulla extra, que descoloca a todo recién llegado que transita con cierta lentitud, quedaron expuestas las otras bullas, las del basamento, las paridas por la flecha indicadora de los tiempos en nuestra sociedad.

Deslizarse, caminar o caer dentro de un renovado maelström (¡Salud, Edgar Allan Poe!) donde la curiosidad se duerme, donde la atención corta el cordón umbilical con la criatura que, mareada en insípida repetición, se deja estar en veloz soledad mientras se hace olvido.

Veo en mi ciudad, y pienso en una especie de calesita malsana donde pocos saben –el olvido cada vez más fuerte– que siempre existe la posibilidad de bajarse. La sortija como símbolo que posibilita renovar el giro en aparente sintonía mejorada, pero siempre amarreta: mayor profundidad en la vorágine. Todo transcurre en el mientras tanto de nuestra sociedad injusta, donde hasta el esfuerzo de vivir con clara conciencia está manoseado por los vaivenes de la timba.

Caminar por Buenos Aires es hoy una invitación a esquivar astronautas en tránsito hacia las naves donde terminan de romper las últimas ataduras con la terrena urbanía.

Astronautas sobre una vereda de Boedo. Los veo venir hacia mí –como si fueran sánguches de miga vencidos (¡Salud, Pappo!)– con expresión de modesto bigbang estrellado. No miran al frente, apenas unos últimos reflejos vitales les permite saber del boceto en que se transformó el afuera. Caminan en soledad. El que puede: pelo y traje de astronauta a la moda. Fino cablerío entrando y saliendo por las orejas. El falo bífido  de un renovado Alien (¡Salud Ridley Scott!) nace en el dispositivo de comando que, desde el ariete tecnológico,va hasta los dueños de Houston, para que estos señores no tengan ningún problema.

Luces y sonidos. Tacto y dedos ansiosos. Ojos desorbitados. Luces y sombras dentro del astronauta que busca llegar a su nave para mejor ser o estar sangre adentro del dispositivo: ser a través de él, ser en la bulla de no ser.Ya no sé de dónde vengo, ni a dónde voy. Soy astronauta en un departamento. Soy astronauta en tren, subte o bondi. Soy tan anónimo entre tantas naves que hacen a mi nave.

Soy una astronauta que sube rauda al colectivo y desenfunda el dispositivo como Alan Ladd pela el revólver en el último duelo de A la hora señalada. La astronauta de movimiento perfecto, de ansiedad afilada empieza a gatillar con los pulgares sedientos. Veo en mi ciudad, y luego intento la existencia, porque pienso y me pregunto.

No soy adherente a los andurriales por donde se arrastran los necios. O sea, no soy tan necio para de un plumazo negar las bondades de la tecnología. Soy usuario de la herramienta tecnológica: computadora, teléfono, redes sociales, y las bondades del ciberespacio en el que también hay nubes. Hago uso de blogs, de páginas, veo cine de ayer a través de Youtube, fui usuario de Netflix. Tengo cinco libros editados como ebooks. Me digo que se puede hacer un uso positivo de la revolución digital. A la vez es triste saber del hombre que vive “conectado” la totalidad del día. Obvio: entre tanto astronauta debe haber gente que, por ejemplo, está leyendo un libro a través del dispositivo; pero no es posible que todos lean, que todos estén adquiriendo sustancia para hacer mejor la idea de la vida en esta sociedad: si así fuera, la soledad no andaría de fiesta entre tanta gente. No hace falta que los colectivos se fabriquen con ventanas, ya nadie mira por ellas. No imagino de qué manera el astronauta sabe que su sobrevuelo urbano se termina y debe bajar para mejor seguir en la nave que lo lleva hasta su nave madre, el refugio solitario donde vive madre: Hal 9000 (¡Salud Arthur C. Clarke!), o similar, que se encarga de todo sueño. Tan conectados  y estamos unidos por tantos abismos insondables. Y uno de estos buches negros ciberespaciales es el encargado de comerse nuestro mundo, el cotidiano, el argento destino. De tanto astronauta visitando otros mundos sucede que se descuida la esquina primera del barrio.

Quien no hace esquina en el barrio se pierde de la fundación de la historia y las ideas que le tocan en su época, y nada tiene que ver que las semillas provengan del pasado: la vida, el mundo, pasa hoy, de ahí la necesidad de nuestra huella. Quien mira hacia otro lado, quien se funda como astronauta de su dispositivo: cuando el norte pasa por renovar su foto diaria antes de que sea demasiado tarde: si el norte del día pasa por el deseo irrefrenable de ser noticia en tanta red,  y enseñar al otro –en tanto la juegue de público– que se lleva una vida exitosa y feliz, por siempre feliz; si todo es cuestión de dar megusta a granel, si la memoria se reduce al simple hecho de cortar y pegar frases de gente que nunca se leyó para mejor aparentar que la revolución está bien dentro de tu corazón: si se pasa por lector de Calvino, Saramago o Pessoa, queda bien y te da vidas en el juego de una careteada por siempre vacía de contenido; esto, decía, es desentenderse de la realidad. Se puede ser astronauta que no sabe de política, solidaridad, derechos humanos, cultura, porque nunca leyó un libro (y cuando en sus manos tuvo la oportunidad de hacerlo), cuando la tecnología le tira el centro hecho disfraz sobre un área de cartón pintado. También se puede ser astronauta que de nada se enteró, porque simplemente iba a los besos con el Alien que le llega hasta la cabeza, y entonces se suceden incontables audios, caritas felices respondidas con más caritas, fotos y videos divertidos de burlados y animalitos juguetones. Y entonces, ¿qué pasa con el mundo fuera de la nave?

Este mundo globalizado empieza desde cada una de nuestras mañanas, y desde allí crece esa manía que identifica al poder que lleva nombre de concentración económica, ideológica, para mejor condenar a través de la exclusión a aquellos que, según salvaje aritmética, no pertenecen. Y es necesario señalar el éxito de los que concentran el poder real a nivel mundo para con los que nunca pertenecerán, esa otra vuelta de tuerca a la famosa imagen de la zanahoria a la que nunca llega el excluido que corre: es el sistema y sus secuaces, los hoy llamados medios de información, el que le ha hecho creer a millones de personas que la no pertenencia solo es un problema de papeles, de pasaporte, que en cualquier momento se arregla para ser y pertenecer a la vereda de los nuevos colonizadores. La discriminación siempre a la mano es una necesidad, porque yo sí, pero él no, otra buena manera de anular posibles solidaridades, un entrenamiento para nunca ver al otro.

Años atrás se era parte del mundo verdad si se estaba en tv, y hoy pesa más la imagen regalada: un carnaval de falsa moneda se retuerce en los terrenos de las redes sociales. En el ciberespacio se cuece mucha mentira, mucha máxima de quien nunca pensó, se vende, por ejemplo,alimento balanceado para pichones de nazis que no saben de su identidad aria devenida desde “novedosas” ideas de justicia.

Es necesario bajarse del Alien, dejar de ser astronauta que no tiene hermanos; cambiar soledad por solidaridad, ocuparse del pensamiento, la idea, la repregunta, la información veraz, que nos ayude a refundar la sociedad, a apuntalar un mundo que se cae a pedazos: volver a encontrarnos en el intento de ser humanos.

    Virtually all of what you articulate is astonishingly appropriate and that makes me wonder why I had not looked at this with this light before.

But at this time there is actually one issue I am not really too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the core idea of your position, permit me see just what all the rest of your subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.

    Thanks for discussing your ideas here. The other thing is that when a problem appears with a computer motherboard, folks should not go ahead and take risk with repairing the item themselves for if it is not done right it can lead to irreparable damage to an entire laptop. Most commonly it is safe just to approach your dealer of your laptop for your repair of motherboard. They will have technicians who definitely have an knowledge in dealing with laptop computer motherboard challenges and can carry out the right diagnosis and undertake repairs.

All these entertainment games were not as sensible when the actual concept was first being used. Just like other kinds of technology, video games way too have had to progress by many many years. This is testimony towards fast continuing development of video games.

    I believe everything typed was actually very logical.
    But, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome title?

    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, but
    suppose you added something that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Soledad Buenos Aires – DESDE BOEDO is kinda vanilla.
    You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and watch
    how they create news headlines to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to
    grab readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.
