How do you read these artists/works in the West, and not only in the West 
of course, how are they related to the self-immolations of Tibetan monks, 
there have been many over the years?

I've known Stelarc as well and feel disturbed at the repeated hookings, 
but it makes no difference what I feel of course.

This is also touching on self-scarring, self-amputations and amputation 
sex, cannibalisms, and so forth.

Here is a related link Jiggsy Baron has posted on Facebook:

I am seriously in awe of people who can think clearly, who have all the 
answers; I can't buy into the answers, but am envious of belief in 
general; in this way I constantly undermine myself.

Thank you, Alan
