MARON D.J. The technological expansion of human reach, that which runs through and morphologically alters the dimension of every philosophical manifestation we have bravely and violently forged into existence, is becoming an acclamation to a loss of interiority.  To examine city culture, a nexus of idea cultivation and enactment, is to eat the fruit of our cognitive labor, and dissolve into a bitter sweet, anonymity; a microcosm of the globalized world.  We search, endlessly and usually effortlessly, for our collective potential to position ourselves within an interior, or as interior makers.  Our conceptions of geographic, and metaphysical location are pathological concerns in a spatial and, more specifically, scalar dimension, and an attempt to bring balance to our Cartesian doctrine.  So, should not our (human) density speak to the power of intersubjectivity, rather than the loneliness of anonymity? To what end do we relieve ourselves with the rising consumption of opioids?  To what new height do we squander our sensory capacities for a one dimensional, binary interface?  This is an exploration of “psychosomatic health” of residents living within dense populations of an urban landscape from a philosophical interpretation of the climate of a capitalistic, Cartesian doctrine of consumer practice, which defines the spaces we live and the way in which we use them.
