“The Oracle Life” is a way of life for seeing the future and creating the future.

Of recent interest to me are China, men/women rebalancing, new media, technology and consciousness, green living, longevity, new mental and emotional pathologies, and pop phenomena such as street art, “hello kitty” strangeness, to have hair or not, films with a message, and…
