A database of imagination with a psychological nature. I kinda like this phrase I've read in Lev Manovich's article The Language of New Media. From the examples cited, maybe I should start thinking of it in terms of the database of consciousness. I am thinking along these same lines.
Also, I was asked this very pertinent question, what the heck is critical theory, really?
And as a friend suggested, I need to start putting visuals to illustrate my long-winded texts :)
