We live a grad-u-al crum-bling

As time falls, the physiognomy of the whole is broken through by the sunrise.-- G.F. Hegel

It has been said many times that everything comes to an end. That's our current dilemma. We have before us the possibility to change things or to witness the beginning of the end. Mind you, the end doesn't end. We live it through stages. This is one, with you and I and everything else in it.

The crumbling is a just a sign, not a "sign" as just another correlation. This one arrives a bit late. To paraphrase Hegel, History is an illusion that brings us the feeling that this is a new dawn. And therein lies the danger.
