Presence of Junk
This chapter summarizes the meaning of the word “junk”, which is both described as an unknown part of DNA or the binding principle that holds the world together. Junk is the cement of cultural experience and the fractal principle that unifies DNA to the cosmos and everything in between, and can be used to describe any significant cultural experience in today’s global culture, such as reality TV, recycled music, movies, and contemporary art. The chapter also talks about Ridley Scott’s movie Blade Runner and Philip K. Dick’s fictions of the 1960s that portrayed junk culture.
