About the Presentation

In a world dominated by fake news, digital pleasure and a twenty-four hours news cycle, more and more people are giving in to the undercurrent of cynicism which celebrates appearances instead of reality.

In this presentation we will seek for the roots of cynicism in the human mind and expose its soul: a cold but seemingly vibrant exile from the Oneness of Life.
