This is an ongoing benefit art auction Call to Action that held at Pleasedontcometothisshow.com/calltoaction. @pleasedontcometothisshow is a social initiative to collect funds to support important and pressing social issues. "Knowledge becomes an action when it seeks to decentralize collective consciousness. An actively conscious society is built communally and through awareness of the narratives that conform it; therefore, we are committed to supporting the work, research, and scholarship of BIPOC, QTPOC, and other LGBTQ folx. Call to Action is an artist-run opinion forum centered around sharing resources and social initiatives to articulate cooperation and alliances. As part of our programming, we host silent art auctions with 100% of the proceeds going to fund underrepresented students, thinkers, creators, social justice foundations, minority-run organizations, and humanitarian aid foundations. Additionally, we broadcast culturally impactful films and post open source educational material that delves into the history and actuality of pressing issues affecting our communities, human rights, civil rights and social justice. Our main goal is to the foreground and remunerates the foundational research of creators who are structurally underrepresented in academia." - @pleasedontcometothisshow

“此/cǐ/彼/bǐ/”, translate as “here, there” in English, are two Chinese characters that first explained by Mozi, a Chinese philosopher during the Hundred Schools of Thought period （from the 6th century to 221 BC）. The book named after him, “Mozi·The Scriptures”, included a detailed argument of the opposition of “here” and “there”. His theory is that “here” and “there” debates each other, and when one tries to address “here” should avoid “there”, vice versa.
