A new layout and slightly creepy theme for the month October and the Feast of All Hallows. Two people have graciously contributed their own material for this update. Vincent Valentine has added a page describing her Otakukin experiences, and Liam Efting has written a piece of music entitled ‘Last Life’ inspired by the Otakukin idea. I have added one new essay regarding the relationship between dreams and memories, and have several more in the works which should be finished shortly. I have added a Past Updates section in order to reduce the clutter on this page.
