Is it true, as Calasso says, that “not only in Greece but in Persia, in Mesopotamia, in India, in China, in Australia, even in Surinam,” whenever people looked into the same segment of sky, they saw the equivalent of Orion: a celestial hunter?

“They must perhaps have had something in common with the whalers who, before they set sail, waited to see a whale in their dreams. If it didn’t appear to them, they could never encounter it in reality.” Calasso on the cave artists.

I curl up with Roberto Calasso’s new book, The . Purely based on the blurb, it seems to be similar to Barbara Ehrenreich’s Blood Rites: about how humans went from being the hunted to the hunter.

Nostalgia for European colonialism was the plot twist that I didn’t see the script writers of 2020 pulling off. A genius move.

I totally get that. But it would still end up disastrously.

“If the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque was a repudiation of Justinian’s purposes in founding it, then so too was its existence as a museum.”
