This blog is devoted to a study of modern cultural phenomena such as contemporary art, movies, books, plays, politics, news, social media, science, etc. My essays are a little different from the ordinary style of most reviews. For me, cultural phenomena can open up and become psychological phenomena, windows to the unknown future, thereby presenting hints of implicit background movements as yet unborn. I give voice or form to these movements in the service of welcoming the unknown future. In this way we can begin to see how potential futures are unfolding into the present through the manifold faces of our traditional cultural practices.
