Immortality is not such a tall order as it may seem at the first glance. The situation in which man can claim the right to become a woman and at the same time cannot affirm his right to exist for eternity is in fact quite the recent occurrence, as we shall see in the new KT Miscellanea.
There's something so inspiring and at the same time so adolescent like in the rebellion against the world, "West", "rationality", and other overwhelming terms of which we are only vaguely aware what they mean. In this Micellanea we contrast this absolutely modern, yet not seldom past oriented, mentality with the authentic voice from the past - one of St. Augustine of Hippo.
In the previous quote from Plutarch’s "Life of Aemilius Paulus", we reflected a bit on the transitory nature of everything “under the Sun” and on the delusion behind the notion of progress. We offer one more excerpt from the same life, this time on a different topic.
