Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
all cultures are connected, some more, some less.

for interesting fusion to occur, and a satisfying tension/release to a narrative, there must be a relationship either between older and newer in one culture, on one axis, or between adjacent cultures, on t'other.

since modernity 'happened', everywhere is adjacent, and fashions change faster, memes collide ever more fractally.

the one became the many, and is returning to the one.

what was potential becomes actual, and thus more potent still...

everything multiplies, complexifies, then simplifies and dies.

our consciousness is like glitter on the surface, evanescent, improbable and revelatory.

(all quotes from www.computationalwisdom.com)

'The history of public debt is full of irony. It rarely follows our ideas of order and justice.' Thomas Piketty
