Transcript of Welcome to the Modern Era!

Humanities 2114H: The Modern Era
The Canto of Ulysses
Canto 26
Consider the seed from which you were sprung:
You were not made to live like brutes,
but to follow virtue and knowledge.


Inferno
, 26, 118-120.
Pikolo begs me to repeat it. How good Pikolo is, he is aware that it is doing me good. Or perhaps it is something more: perhaps, despite the wan translation and the pedestrian, rushed commentary, he has received the message, he has felt that it has to do with him, that it has to do with all men who toil, and with us in particular; and that it has to do with us two, who dare to reason of these things with the poles for the soup on our shoulders.
...tomorrow he or I might be dead, or we might never see each other again, I must tell him, I must explain to him about the Middle Ages, about the so human and so necessary and yet unexpected anachronism. . .

and he is us.
"All seeing is essentially perspective, and so is all knowing."
--Nietzsche
