“Tie the edges: love your neighbor[1]

The origin of writing as we know it now has its bases in the graphic representation of images that portray iconic objects, the pictography traced to the Neolithic reconstructed scenes with drawings made on stone with objectives of sympathetic or propitiatory magic. The man obtained through a series of “homeopathic” rites the control of the medium, and it was through the representation that the artist obtained a decisive influence on what had been represented.

 

If history does not lie (and it does), there was a time when all words, dialects and languages lived prosperously in one place. Forged on the basis of that knowledge, we (we, a singular people) erected that infamous tower in an attempt to reach the omnipresent God. Annoyed by the audacity of his creation, he punished the builders by changing their uniqueness, replacing the unit for confusion, isolating us from one another with hostility and misunderstanding.
