“West” has meant different things at different times. It (still) signifies a cultural attitude of possession: This planet is ours, we can transform it at will.
It has also signified exploration, and transcending imagined limits.
Settling at such a limit point signifies an attitude, the willingness to accept being a Stranger in a Strange Land.
Esthetics here is necessarily a potpourri of ideas and cultures that do not create a harmonious whole by itself.
The unifying theme is elsewhere.
Every attempt to create one’s own little human space here is humbled by the vastness of the world around us.
That we are allowed to be here, too, is a form of grace.
