In Search of the White Logos

Novas

When Daedalus after tragic ordeals at last found firm ground in Cumae, he built Apollo a temple. He hung up his wings as an offering to the god and decorated the golden doors of the temple with his personal story. Aeneas would later reach these doors, and his contemplation of this story served as preparation […]

The Good Race

A special review of NBC’s The Good Place through the looking glass of the Sufi muslim’s zahir and bāṭin.

It’s in the Water or the Air

Dickey Two

I watched glass towers invade a city. By the time I arrived in XVNT the city was already represented by one. In icons and outlines of skylines, the glass tower stood in for this metropolis of a hundred thousand alleyways, of an indigenous concrete modernism, of a unique market architecture.

Whig History

Bandalong

Whig History and the Myth of Progress Whig historiography kills braincells.
