The results of living inside a proscenium arch of satellites is that the young now accept the public spaces of the earth as role-playing areas. Sensing this, they adopt costumes and roles and are ready to "do their thing" everywhere.

—Marshall McLuhan, From Cliché to Archetype

When people get together in groups larger than the family, they form a society (or a group of societies), and societies have their own habits, practices, and taboos - their culture. These articles describe aspects of Fen Culture.
