Tuesday’s Quotes – September 13, 2016

I had my gallbladder removed yesterday (yes, for those of you keeping track, it’s only been 4 moths since my husband’s came out!), so I’m afraid that post will be necessarily short. Recuperation time has left me with a bit of contemplation time, and so I share with you this thought from Martin Heidegger:

“When the farthest corner of the globe has been conquered technologically and can be exploited economically; when any incident you like, in any place you like, at any time you like, becomes accessible as fast as you like; when you can simultaneously “experience” an assassination attempt against a king in France and a symphony concert in Tokyo; when time is nothing but speed, instantaneity, and simultaneity, and time as history has vanished from all Being of all peoples; when a boxer counts as the great man of a people; when the tallies of millions at mass meetings are a triumph; then, yes then, there still looms like a specter over all this uproar the
question: what for? — where to? — and what then?”
