Transcribed from 3 orange and 2 green notebooks, this project is loosely journalistic and even autobiographical, but remains mostly philosophic in its use of both essays and aphorisms orientated towards an analysis of the relationships between Western civilization and both ancient and contemporary forms of cyclic societies whose origins are perceived, more or less logically, as having different causes, both independently of (ancient) and in relation to (contemporary) Western civilization and the way it has been described from its Greco-Roman origins up to the America-dominated global present. But the theme of reservations remains key to the project as a whole, and this is tackled from a multiplicity of angles, both subjectively and in terms of types of reservations to be found in life generally. Finally, the author pulls no punches in his interpretation of Western decadence and what it stemmed from and was in polarity to, regarding it as the underlying catalyst for what subsequently transpired.
