When in Kyoto

31/12/2017

The Boy forced me to dress in kimono (knowing I’m the kind of person who has to be “forced” to do something that she secretly has always wanted to do since dressing up as Mulan for Halloween when I was little). We took pictures and acted extra, so here they are.…

06/12/2017

The theory that claims a nearly indistinguishable process of thought among all humans regardless of their culture assumes a Eurocentric worldview. This hypothesis neglects to consider the differences between Eastern and Western countries, while remaining apologetic towards Western ignorance by allowing its preservation in an increasingly globalised society. The reality of the complexities of human cognition are greatly attributed, instead, to a host of factors beyond biology relevant…
