Read about simple photo mechanics, where you will find the advantages and weakness of each shutter
If you want to bring Zen into your photography learn to become engaged with your subject and use equipment and materials you know so well that their use is second nature - But I note you quote Francis Bacon, so . . .
Back to shutters and a warning - In the profile pic' of me photographing a Zamia in WA I was using my Sinar Shutter as I know it well, unfortunately the lens I was using has a Compound shutter and I must of touched the shutter rlse on the Compound when stopping down the aperture, closing the Compound and resulting in two blank sheets - Hoist by my own petard
