Like his Spartan predecessor, the Essence Man leaves no room for error neither compromise on the battleground.
He awakes early in the day, focused and contemplates the battle at hand. He searches his armoury for the most suitable tools and weaponry that will give him a competitive advantage over his opponent in the heat of battle. He is also aware that the battle isn't only won with physical strength but more so with a sound mind. He prepares mentally and strategies.
When the battle cry rings in the city, he is holistically ready and proceeds to his awaiting chariot to be transported to the battlefront.
The narrative develops in a symphony of four movements
Introspection: Man awakes and contemplates the task ahead of him; the Power Lunch.
Preparation: He meticulously peruses his wardrobe for the most appropriate attire that would put him in good stead for the power lunch.
Mind Growth: Once physically prepared, he puts his mind in gear and strategizes.
Procession: In the final movement, he proceeds to his awaiting vehicle in orderly fashion, to be transported to the battle at hand.

The Hero’s Journey | Is my graduation project for the University HKU | Image and Media Technology
Since the beginning of time people are fascinated by stories of hero’s. But did you know there is a fundamental structure that's lies beneath all these tales of fantasy. Joseph Campbell, a famous mythologist, was the first to discover similarities within all ancient myths. He called it the Monomyth. According to him there are 17 stages in which every hero has to walk through one way or the other.
Christopher Vogler a Hollywood development executive was inspired by the writings of Campbell. He wrote his own adaptation guide for hollywood screenwriters.
In the hero’s journey his 12 stages are visualized by using iconic blockbuster movies that follow the same structure of storytelling.

I don't think we truly realise the power of technology, 3D printers are more accessible now than they have ever been and the reality is that to make a gun is as simple as the click of a button. I present to you...
Lenny Shiller is a lifelong Brooklyn resident and classic car collector. He has amassed a staggering 58 rare classic cars, while he also owns hundreds of vintage bikes, motorcycles, and memorabilia. Lenny spends his time restoring and maintaining his collection, with the intention one day to pass them on to the next generation. The walls of his 12,000 sq ft garage in Gowanus are stacked with car parts he has collected over the years, the space resembling part working garage, part museum.
