Building on
The invention of self
The fear of the unknown
The linearity of narrative
The linearity of history
The position of both these things in the construction of identity
Both are forms of idealisation.
The compulsion for closure ie. resolution, neatness
Museological presentation as a way of distancing ourselves culturally from what is being presented

These thoughts were abruptly quelled by a sound which I shall not forget for the duration of my life, and possibly beyond. Superficially, the sound was like to a hundred crumhorns playing a low G, but through the middle of it was something savage, something which struck me as an ancient sadness and anger. It gave one the feeling that one’s soul was being plunged into the bottom-most depths of a murky, stagnant pool.

Museological presentation as a way of distancing ourselves culturally from what is being presented... a v strong line. :)
