Example


"Man passes through the present with his eyes blind-folded. He is permitted merely to sense and guess at what he is actually experiencing. Only later when the cloth is untied can he glance at the past and find out what he has experienced and what meaning it had."

Milan Kundera, Laughable Loves

I think this is an overly optomistic evaluation of the human condition. Who is to say that the cloth will ever be untied? How many people would actually want to look?

Like the spoon, there is no cloth.
