A Quote by John David Ebert on being, context, web, interconnections, myth, and science

Every book that comes into being does so within the context of a web of interconnections between individuals, and this is no less so in the present case. The idea for this book first occured to me in 1994 while reading a passage from William Irwin Thompson's book - Imaginary Landscape: Making Worlds of Myth and Science - in which he briefly discusses David Cronenberg's great film - Videodrome - and I would never have stumbled across the works of Thompson if they had not been recommended to me by my friend John Lobell - and the website companion to this bookCinemaDiscourse.com - would not exist without Lobell's initiative and enthusiasm for the essays contained herein.
