Spider Girl

"The 'magico-religious' tarantella
 is a solo dance performed
supposedly to cure…
 the delirium and contortions
 attributed to the bite of a spider
at harvest (summer) time."


Mira Sorvino in 'Tarantella,' with film's motto-- 'Life's a dance'

Life's a dance

    Bull on Sacred Cows:

"Poor late nineteenth-century, poor early twentieth-century! Oh, brave new world that had such people in it: people like Charles Darwin, Karl Marx, Friedrich Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, Albert Einstein, Werner Heisenberg, Kurt Gödel. Seven people who did more than all the machine-guns and canons of the Somme Valley or the Panzer divisions of Hitler to end the old world and to create– if not the answers– at least the questions that started off the new, each one of them killing one of the sacred cows on which Western consciousness had fed for so long…."

— Apostolos Doxiadis, "Writing Incompleteness-– the Play" (pdf).
