What's great about that great game, TV series, book, film, chart release, or event you're hooked on?
That feeling that it will stay with you your whole life?
Perhaps it will. But not everything can last forever.
And yet some works do.
Why not compare the stuff you're into with works that have lasted centuries - or even millennia?
Explore Ideas of Beauty, Truth, Justice, Goodness, Freedom, Harmony, and the Sublime. Engage in a 'Great Conversation' that has fascinated thinkers universally from small indigenous cultures to huge cultural empires.
Liberate your senses. Free your mind.
