Marten Valkenborch, "The Tower of Babel" (16th c.)
everywhere we seek reconciliation and find only alienation.
there is only the one sin: to insist that 'I am'. everything else is its symptom.
we do not live in the
we have built our tower; it stretches to heaven. we named its walls Eternity, and on its foundation engraved the word Nature. let Ramses look upon it and despair.
in babel, we speak only one language; by law every sentence must include the word "I".
History is Truth.
