Upon reflection, what I've said about mankind is not true, or it is, but only one side of the coin: death, afterall precedes birth, and forgetting paves the way for new remembrances. The philosopher must truly remain silent, but the artist might still have a chance! That new culture appears first to be merely banal might simply be its nature. Praised in its lifetime by pedants, and awed later by forlorn poets. Progress is still to much to hope for, but the end, I think, is not yet in sight; the brave may therefore still embrace action!
