Observer's Webring Profile
A lousy name for a Burning Man related profile, isn't? "Observer" sounds so much like "Spectator", which strikes me as being an additional good reason for claiming it as my login - because irrational, kneejerk reactions, upon being recognized, should be opposed and defied, not reinforced through compliance with their demands. "Observer" can be taken as a rejection of the narcissistic introspection that Postmodernism encourages, with its rewards of bad art and worse philosophy. I look to the external, objective reality surrounding me, study it, and thus ground myself and my efforts. Sad to say, this simple bit of common sense is getting to be quite the distinction, these days, enough so that I can define a clearly understood name using it.
