winter withered, warm
And that here is supposed to follow the logic/consequences of postmodernism?
Patrick McCarthy describes HCE's wife ALP as "the river-woman whose presence is implied in the "riverrun" with which Finnegans Wake opens and whose monologue closes the book. For over six hundred pages, Joyce presents Anna Livia to us almost exclusively through other characters, much as in Ulysses we hear what Molly Bloom has to say about herself only in the last chapter." The most extensive discussion of ALP comes in chapter I.8, in which hundreds of names of rivers are woven into the tale of ALP's life, as told by two gossiping washerwomen. Similarly hundreds of city names are woven into "Haveth Childers Everywhere", the corresponding passage at the end of III.3 which focuses on HCE. As a result, it is generally contended that HCE personifies the Viking-founded city of Dublin, and his wife ALP personifies the river Liffey, on whose banks the city was built.
Maybe something to do with decentralized organization. Perhaps you would still be on the tailend/offramp of the highway-of-systematized-narcissism, and still be in a sort of hypersocial state compared to the offline/pre-internet precedent.If the internet were to go down for an extended period and we had to do without it, what have we learned from it that we could use? I don't mean things we've learned via the internet, I mean what has the structure itself taught us? What can we take from it and apply to the offline world?
I don't think we're under any illusions about that. We'd also lose access to a lot of information and have to go back to relying on local newspapers, word of mouth, TV and radio. A lot of people would end up unemployed too.a post-internet world means no more dissensus or buying books on amazon, though. "internet" is more than yr smartphone.
why would this happen?is this a thing yet?
can't wait tbh
Yeah i was thinking about this too, We are totally reliant on this thing,why would this happen?
sorry to pee in the pool but hard to imagine it would be a positive, it's not like the world would then revert back to the imagined idyllic, more peaceful, simply days when (in theory) life was good and we all got along. people wouldn't suddenly forget what internet life was like, they'd rebel against losing all the advantages it brought.
it also smells slightly of MAGA.
