Kenji Terakawa (Revealist)
Revealist = sourcism = inquiry-oriented = objective =~ researcher
Secretist = empirism = field-oriented = subjective = critic
I am a Revealist.
Revealists produce archives or chronicles of certain topics by collecting/compiling source materials. Revealing well-known facts among insiders or alleged legends rumored by witnesses, Revealist activity makes those events commonplace. No interest in scandals or gossips. There is no missionary duty to purge the society by exposing the hidden in darkness.
Put simply, Revealists attempt to let more people know and share interesting events so far confined within limited communities, in anticipation of making the world more interesting.
Although a Revealist usually works as a researcher, these two are similar but distinctive. Researchers often manipulate facts for the sake of research achievements. While researchers prioritize the result and themselves, Revealists prioritize the process through the result and its diffusion in the public.
New-Method releases all of their activities on the web and archives them online to the public. Archives are the foundation to construct the history. Once made open and available to anybody, an archive becomes useful when one tries to compile a history of a certain phenomenon.
Information becomes legendary when it is hidden, and generalized when apparent. Legendary historical facts are valued well for a while, but seen in the long-term it is daily record that significantly makes sense to the history.
Now, everyone, let's make your archive public. Then Revealist will come to your place.
Examples of Revealist activity:
"Reading Animation no.00 Genealogy of Takuya Mori" (PDF 9.6 MB, Japanese)
"Truth of 'Art Animation'" (PDF 10.7 MB, Japanese)

9 photos lined-up in 3 by 3
I lined up photos of Stonehenge, ones taken from "Ordinary photo" in No.24 issue, into 3 by 3 rows and columns. These lined-up photos of Stonehenge suggest somewhat occult impression, but I don't intend it.
