The theme “Incubus" takes inspiration from short story “Bóng đè” of author Do Hoang Dieu. Using incubus - a spiritual obsession as a metaphor, the author wants to express her concerns on humans’ modern lives which have been oppressed by layer and layer of obsessions and invisible fear, pressuring them like shadows. Similar to the main character, most people in current society, regardless of their fields of study or career paths they are taking, have to face day-to-day pressure, unnamed fear. Although they do not appear as physical obstacles, the fear lingers in our lives, pulling us down bits by bits. Just as that, we are held down by shadows invisible to the eyes but visible to mind. With the theme “Incubus", TEDxTrangThiSt wants to present opinions which centers on the pressure that is put on the daily lives of people of different fields and jobs, from which we derive ideas, innovative perspectives on the problems as well as way to overcome them.
