” 250 years ago : rationalists and snails “

 

On may 27, in the morning, I cut off the head to twenty snails. Fifteen day later two of the snails which I cut the head had a new head and I saw them eating his food. They still eating at the moment. I have no doubt that if I cut off the head to a snail after twenty days she has a new head with her fibers, her nerves, her mouth, her eyes etc. Also a boy can cut off the head to a snail but it needs a mature man to explain where had gone the ideas, the sensibility etc. of the decapitated snails? Always we believe the head is the site of the sensibility and of the ideas and the principle of the vitality. The regeneration of the head is the refuting of ten thousands books about Metaphisics since the Greeks… and it is a sincere thanks to snails. The Nature is really a force. I think in a future that the Science could make a new good head to a man that has not one. The philosophers and theologians are like a child, they do not have the reason. The real world is so deep, it is an abyss hence the mankind must bow to the Nature.

(Sigularités de la nature, François-Marie Arouet Voltaire, 1768)

” a political remark for the folk of my country and for the good people all around the world “

The image above is dated 13 november 1993 and it explains a map of Italy scheduled for 1999 by the Right Party called Lega Nord. The south of Italy cut out by the Nord of Italy. It is at the same time an offensive opinion about southern people using the word “terrone” that is a pejorative term for southern Italians. Kill the southern people! seems to be the slogan of this Party. Now after the Italian Elections for the Parliament (march 4, 2018) this political group has a signifier percentage in Nord Italy and it claimed to be the defender of Italian citizens against the invasion of African people. But this photocopied document explains that it is not true: this Political Party is and was xenophobic , racist and also egotist. It is not a political force fit to rule the country as well on the domestic side, european side and international side.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” virginia woolf as anthropoligist “

Here is a story of the savage caught somewhere off the coast of Labrador, taken to England and shown about like a wild beast. Next year they bring him back and fetch a woman savage on board to keep him company. When they see each other they blush; they blush profoundly; the sailor notices it but knows not why it is. And later the two savages set up house together on board ship, she attending yo his wants, he nursing her in sickness, but living as the sailors note, in perfect chastity. The erratic searchlight cast by these records falling for a second upon those blushing cheeks three hundred years ago, among the snow, sets up that sense of communication which we are apt to get only from fiction. we seem able to guess why they blushed; the Elizabethans would notice it, but it has waited over three hundred years for us to interpret it.

Virginia Woolf  (1919)
