I asked Alex for his take on whether my soul is American or European.

[6/29, 6:36 PM] Alex From Venice: the only thing I dare to say is that American culture is more prone to pragmatism
[6/29, 6:36 PM] Alex From Venice: priority goes to what is useful for a given purpose
[6/29, 6:38 PM] Alex From Venice: less philosophy more action
[6/29, 6:39 PM] Alex From Venice: in this aspect you are less close to the American stereotypes that I know, and maybe more near to a classic culture, which isn't anymore much in Europe too

[6/29, 7:34 PM] Winston Wu: Thats true. Except for Hollywood. American movies put out a lot of fantasy and sci fi. And American authors write a lot of fantasy too. And Americans are into stuff like UFOs and ghosts too. But thats a subculture of America. The mainstream culture is very pragmatic and materialistic and all about financial success and business success.
[6/29, 7:35 PM] Winston Wu: Would I have fit into the Italian Renaissance era?

[6/29, 7:36 PM] Alex From Venice: Yes. I think so
[6/29, 7:37 PM] Alex From Venice: you are more like an "old soul"
[6/29, 7:37 PM] Alex From Venice: like me
[6/29, 7:37 PM] Alex From Venice: that's why you are my brother in soul 😉
