MONOLITH is one of the most stimulating reads out there on the magazine market. It is a bi-annual fusion of an investigative science bible, spiritually explorative kaleidoscope and philosophic psychedelia. It brings together the different disciplines in an intellectually appealing and visually absorbing crescendo. Here’s a little taster-treat for you: an exclusive chit-chat with Lore Oxford, the grand Mata of MONOLITH:
Everything is questionable… Why did you choose this as the MONOLITH maxim?
I read a book by Robert Anton Wilson called Cosmic Trigger when I was working on the conceptual side of MONOLITH – over a year ago, now. He speaks a lot about how the best way to perceive the world is to believe nothing and to question everything and it really got me thinking. If scientists could once have claimed that the world was flat with total confidence, then who knows what else the masses believe entirely that could one day turn out to be false? MONOLITH explores awe-inspiring subject matter and encourages its readers to be curious about the world we live in, and similarly the articles are intended not to immerse the readers in a pre-determined belief system, but rather to inform them and inspire them to form their own opinions. Everything is questionable seemed the perfect phrase to illustrate this.
I’m just glad the world didn’t end. If nothing else, I know that I’m not done learning about the world yet.
