Echo Sierra Papa

Culture, in the contemporary sense, offers no moments to pause and reflect.

Nonetheless, the failure to give due consideration to reality, history, and experience is great failure indeed; as long as the media, the intellectually mediocre, and a mundane cultural aesthetic offer no more than one benighted perspective after another, the development of the contemplative faculties is not only desirable for the forward-thinking individual, it is essential to human progress beyond the shallows.  Even the very idea of the existence of such faculties, for many, evokes the paranormal.
