"The owl of Minerva spreads its wings only with the coming of the dusk."

This quote from the famous German philosopher Hegel (in the "Philosophy of Right"), quite aptly describes the method by which we often inquire about our reality.

Minerva, as you may know, is the famous Roman goddess of war (her Greek counterpart is Athena). The owl of Minerva (or Athena) is often used to symbolize wisdom and knowledge. So what Hegel is attempting to convey here is simple:

Wisdom and knowledge comes from reflecting upon our past in hindsight.

Notwithstanding the various philosophical and epistemological problems associated with this quote, it grasps the essence of my journey to better imagine and understand our world.

My name is Hosanna Fukuzawa, and I'm here to tell you a story. A story about our reality through the eyes of the owl of Minerva. Looking back, reflecting, and possibly imagining the wisdom we can derive from our past and present.
