living the life of riley

interactions with peers online and in travel have inspired a constant exploration of the undeniable role that the infamous internet plays in our conceptions of culture.
behind the guise of an onscreen alias, support can be found for every niche, every persona, every fetish, every hobby. there is a burning, natural, desire to impress one’s best self upon others- to make outward appearances live up to culturally assigned ideals of perfection. that obsession with acceptance existed long before the internet and will long after. the field of anthropology comes with an ethical responsibility to remain conscious as an observer of the ‘other’. historically, this study has been highly based on field work, cultural immersion, and participant observation.  

the internet provides a fly-on-the-wall, virtual pov, with access to information unlike anything ever before.

 

if you remain open, there will never be a shortage of ways to learn how the universe is comprised of endless reflections and reincarnations of the same matter. your perception of reality is 1 of 1. understand this, and assimilate organically anywhere in the cosmos.
