'At its most ambitious, memento vivere as a project is a fusion of rhetoric, psychology, and cosmology (Bloom, 1973/1997, xxvi) that can never match Shakespeare's eloquence, Hip Hop's power, the mystery of the oceans, or of the galaxies.
But this project does try to point to the same expansive, all-inclusive, singular-diverse realities that these (Shakespeare / Hip Hop / oceans / galaxies) give us in and of our lives.
One starting place for this is with
Things (& Being).'
