Philosophies of Cloud Atlas

The broad philosophical topics in Cloud Atlas create an interesting experience that will entice the audience to watch or read it over and over to understand a little more each time. It’s great to analyse and one of my favourites!

Some topics (to my limited knowledge) are:

  • Inter-dependence and social contract theories (perhaps Thomas Hobbes’s “Leviathon”) from quote: “Our lives are not our own, we are bound to others, past and present and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future”.
  • Slavery
  • Ethics: Treating others of a different background
  • Re-incarnation

STIC’s new ‘Workout’ album coming soon!

The health-conscious segment is rapidly increasing with various trends and products that aid in their quests for living a ‘healthier’ life.

There are many genres that are great to listen to while working out like dance music, heavy metal and hip-hop to name a few, but one growing trend is conscious hip-hop music for which STIC is best known for. His hip-hop poetry speaks about inspiration, spiritual awareness, fitness, diet and human empowerment over up-tempo beats. He also is current member of the ‘Dead Prez’ duo, who speaks about social and political issues, activism and supports the ‘black empowerment movement’.

Here’s a preview of ‘The Workout 2’ album which is coming soon,

 

For those that haven’t heard the first workout album from STIC, here’s a playlist from Youtube.
