WHAT WE DO
The Center is a small think tank, home to a collection of philosophical and pop culture thinkers who embrace a mind-expanding agenda for the 21st century. We theorize media, culture, and human destiny from the cosmic perspective.
Imagine exploring the fate of our species, the ideas of films and artworks, the existential effects of media technologies, and the meaning of our existence in a vast and ancient universe, of which we are not the center — in hopes of theorizing a better destiny for humanity on Spaceship Earth. Cosmic cultural theory, that's what we do. Join us.

2. LET'S KEEP THE MOON COSMIC: THE FIRST CELESTIAL PARK
As the 21st century space age ramps up, there are plans to strip mine the moon and bring energy resources and minerals back to Earth for our consumption. Just think: We will be hauling chunks of the moon back to Earth and eventually spewing it into our atmosphere and tossing it in our landfills. Is this even remotely sane?
