Slow being

Kosmorganians are in no hurry,  nor living in future agendas. Visitors may need to learn to slow down their pace according to the Kosmorganian watch. Theorist Paul Virilio blames high-speed transportation and communication systems for their negative impact on the landscape and people.[1] People around the world have begun to resist the constant acceleration of daily life and adopt a new slow lifestyle. [2] This includes slow food, slow money, slow cities, and slow art.[3] Slow living is more thoughtful, focused attention and being in the present moment. It is about engaging in ‘mindful’ rather than ‘mindless’ practices.[4]
