TIME AND TIME AGAIN by John Zerzan
Our lives thus begin an estrangement that grows and grows. Time and alienation are two words that are the measure of each other. Time becomes a thing, standing pitilessly over us.
Taken together maybe these pieces are strands toward solving the puzzle of time. In Zerzan's view the topic is best understood historically (and pre-historically) so as to ground and be able to chart its course.
Once we lived without time. Now it's all too real. But it was never a natural or inevitable development. A harbinger of symbolic culture...and look what that's brought us.
