Solitary confinement is most clearly and immediately a form of violence against the experienced world of the prisoner. But if our ‘here’ is intertwined with their ‘there’, it cannot help but affect our own capacities to see, hear, and make sense of our lives: http://aeonm.ag/1eIozMz

Via Dolorosa is Dutch artist and filmmaker Menno Otten's shimmering documentary filmed cheek-to-cheek alongside the penitents on the ritual road in Spain. Short, beautiful and profound, it is truly great piece of film making for the end of Holy Week. Running time 12 mins: http://aeonm.ag/1j4M4QG
Experience the agony and the ecstasy alongside the believers of Malaga, Spain

'Kenyans were winning marathons everywhere in the world. They must be really good if you gave them a bike'. Baisikeli is a short documentary about what happened after Nicholas Leong followed marathon winners home and convinced them to form the Kenyan national cycling team: http://aeonm.ag/1mlah7G
This 26 minute documentary follows the Kenyan national cycling team through the glorious highs and strength-sapping lows of training and competition.

Emerging adults are viewed as lazy, selfish narcissists who never want to grow up. Is there is any truth to these stereotypes or are they just unfair? http://aeonm.ag/1j4gleB

"The reason we have so much trouble as we age is because we seem to equate adulthood with being exiled to a Mojave-like desert without food or water.  Or to a factory where our sole job is to insert the same peg in the same hole as it passes on the assembly line, day in and day out. In this line of thinking, growing up means the only respite we’re allowed to relieve the pressures of life is to go to an all you can eat buffet and stuff ourselves to the point of numbness. 

The whole notion that adult life equals a dead-end job and an overwhelming sense of responsibility, is, in a word, bollocks."

Vertigo knocked me out of whack. Now, when people talk of finding equilibrium, I want to hit them with my walking stick: http://ow.ly/vV5VS

Tagline
Aeon is an online magazine of ideas and culture. We publish original essays and short documentary films, free to all. aeon.co/magazine & aeon.co/film
Introduction

Aeon Magazine, which launched in September 2012, publishes an original essay every weekday. See a selection of our most popular essays.

Aeon Film, which launched in November 2013, screens contemporary and classic short documentaries.

Our content is organised around five themes:

World Views takes on contemporary culture clashes, ancient philosophical conundrums and the many ways in which our beliefs shape experience.

Nature & Cosmos looks through the eyes of cutting-edge scientists, explorers and other attentive observers to bring the universe’s myriad patterns into focus.

Being Human puts our own nature under the microscope, comparing insights from psychology, anatomy, evolutionary theory and simple introspection.

Living Together searches for fresh lessons and hopeful developments in the greatest and most complicated of human projects, co-existence.

Altered States explores ritual, play, recreation and imagination: whatever it takes to get beyond the everyday world.
