I would like to welcome new member Mark Fagan of Clark, New Jersey, USA
to the EVForum. In the event that he isn't familiar with it already, I
would like to recommend http://voegelinview.com/
Can we live without some originary orientation? Is it simply a residual phenomenon, or an existential protest arising out of the depths of our being, that sends us in search of privileged places, be they our birthplace, the scene of our first love, or the theater of some important historical occurrence—a battle, a revolution, the execution ground of patriots? We return to such places because there a more than everyday reality erupted and because the memory attached to what took place there preserves us from being simply errant vagrants in the world.
