Technorati Profile


The phrase “Ex Oriente Lux” is Latin for “from the East Light”.  It refers to the notion that civilization itself, like light, originates in the east.  Moreover, it is the first half of the phrase, “Ex Oriente Lux, Ex Occidente Lex” which means, “from the East light, from the West law”.  Similarly, the subject matter, or “light”, of this blog emanates from the East, yet the analysis, or “lex”, comes from a decidedly Western point of view.
