Take the mask off so you can see” is a line from the popular hip-hop song by Future and Kendrick Lamar. The mask plays a very important role in both human history and psychology. It is often a reflection of the various archetypes that we encounter in our lives as well as a shield for our inner souls. We will discuss the mentality of the mask as it relates to current events and its implications for the future. Summer also comes with its own rituals and celebrations.
