Agnosis…

It’s not important to remember days, and wonder why has our time become so slow; it doesn’t matter anymore if there’s no thunder, after the rain, before the bow… It matters not why in our backyard’s desert, there are no camels and the Bedouins have left; what truly matters is a sense of water, illusion … Continue reading Agnosis…

Philip Pullman, “His Dark Materials”, “The Golden Compass” – The Liberty of Thinking 1

1. Introduction "his Dark Materials", would have been my original title's twist on Pullman's own naming for this centuries changing, monumental trilogy.
