“It all starts—as it does with most weird ideas—with Slavs and Tatars. Reading their Khhhhhh one comes across a short description of a takht, described as a ‘group of roughly four or five people without the unfortunate and unspoken delineation of individual space dictated by the meager chair. Friends, families, and colleagues sit, smoke shisheh, sip tea, eat lunch, take naps, and create however momentarily a sense of public space.'”
