A passage from Open Sky; The Perspective of Real Time

“Now Let us return to the probable source of this ignorance about public rhythmics, the pace of public life.
On a constricted planet that is becoming just one vast floor, the lack of collective resentment over dromospheric pollution stems from our forgetting the essence of the path, the journey.  In spite of recent studies and debates on seclusion and its hardships affecting this or that group of people deprived of their freedom of movement –  totalitarian or penal regimes, blockades, states of siege and so on – it seems we are still incapable of seriously entertaining this question of the path, except in the realms of mechanics, ballistics or astronomy.
Objectivity, subjectivity, certainly, but never trajectivity.”
