Since The End

“Since The End”

"In reality, every mutable thing has within itself the measure of its time."
-Johann Gottfried Herder

The interpretation of signs, namely, the objects or events whose presence indicates the probable presence of something else, is the central activity that defines our ability to communicate meaning, always imbued in a temporal sequence. This meaning, however temporal, is the only humanly available promise of truthfulness of the factual in relation to the real. The tissue of the real, as an aggregate of the entirety of phenomena and human relationships, is not available to description, but only to intuition, and under extraordinary circumstances, to perception. Facts on the order hand, are organized chronologically: When, then, and the end. But what happens to the faculty of judgment when the system of signs that travel between fact and reality becomes obscured and muted? Is it possible to speak of reliable memories when the apparatus of perception is barred from access to the data that make the signs communicable?
