One could search for both of the meanings of [the Persian word] “سرکشی” (rebellion/dissent, inspection) with the opportunity that can map out the way to make sense of the reason dissent happens in everyday life and how different bodies can perceive it in political events and what happens after dissent becomes the essential part of reproduction of its means. The hypothesis for a better understanding of dissent, can wipe out any action that could be seen as revolt in the rational mind of state, compared to other calendars of time in the world. However, establishing satisfied communities with consensus for a scattered state of action cannot normally secure the upward inspection from the ruling state, which cannot avoid fractures of metaphysics pertaining violence as a result. Finding an explanation for a phenomenon that essentially appears not normal—like an earthquake leads to defining nature of things that is experienced by certain group of society and their behavior. Alongside this identified phenomena, there is also the practice of objects that are built but somehow didn’t follow their limits and still are being the memento of an action that remains as debris of a memory. Now, do objects last longer than people?
