"if and when Judgment Day arrives, i'd personally rather have them judge me. no man or woman shall or can judge me. but the lamp in my living room and the book by my bed, well, they most certainly can!"
had a small quip at jabbering with a few folks a while back. something to do with the consciousness of modern man and Modernity itself. i mean, when does Modernity begin? Wallace believes the concept to have emerged around the middle ages in Europe. Foucault thinks it is only about 500 years old.
but the one thing that sort of comes to mind was the whatever it was that was the idea of Modernity, it was a very Eurocentric view to the world that discarded everything non-European, calling them barbaric, savage and ignorant.
"i think therefore i am." ~ Descartes
