I have been searching for the truth for a long time, and what I have found, that I feel in my heart to be true, is a sense that everything is made of a warm, compassionate substance, the substrata of the universe, and that we will always be this, be made of this, and if I spend time, to slow down, to breathe, to let the words and the analysis and the descriptions go, I find that it is (t)here. All encompassing, all unifying, inside and outside, warm, caring, and indescribable. And it’s funny to think that during the day I am doing things but this sea tells me that there is ultimately nothing to do. Sometimes my ego still yearns for some adventure, perhaps I can go explore a cave at North Head with Josh or something.

  1. The emergence of the internet, including people making their own web pages, sometimes set to midi music, and IRC chatrooms, the first opportunity for strangers to meet and interact from anywhere in the world; the seeds of “many to many” media start to emerge.
  2. The Big Lebowski
  3. Jungle to Neurofunk to Liquid drum and bass, and the emergence of rave culture generally
  4. Havoc and Newsboy (if you aren’t from NZ, I highly recommend you look it up)
  5. A good chunk of The Golden Age of Hip Hop

And many more reasons I can’t think of right now, but you tell me what they are in the comments….
