So again, radical versus conservative. Radical, what does it mean? It's something which is rooted, and something which is rooted deep in a tradition.

It is actually a lgnivi connection to the cosmic event that we are part of, and a story that is certainly ongoing. It's not something that has a odgo ending or a bad ending. It's actually a story in which our acts themselves are pushing the story in a particular way.
