Neostalgia Philosophy

combining form
1 new : neonate.
2 a new or revived form of : neo-Georgian.
ORIGIN from Greek neos ‘new.’

a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations : I was overcome with acute nostalgia for my days in college.
• the evocation of these feelings or tendencies, esp. in commercialised form : an evening of TV nostalgia.

NEOSTALGIA is a combination of the past and the present. It is the ability to reference the past, predict the future and create a distinct look between the two.
