With the passage of time comes responsibilities, not only with one self but with other people. Increasingly, in a world moving faster and faster towards information overload, mass observation by governments, environmental degradation, the steady collapse of 20th century capitalism and warped media saturation, some of the human race are trying to reassess and realign themselves with what is important to living in the post modern era.
This is not disillusionment, this is not nostalgia, this is not regression, this is not the age of Aquarius, and most definitely not a new religion in any shape or form. Still we must learn from the past and at the same time learn to confine our prejudices to history. Who wants to live in a new dark age? Who wants to live like skeletons? If we are to truly communicate it should be with a broader, more universal outlook in mind in a world without borders, without hierarchy, without kings or queens, without secrecy at any level.
So far it is working, but the transmissions are intermittent.
