“WE’RE SO FAMILIAR WITH WRITTEN LANGUAGE THAT WE SOMETIMES FORGET HOW OUTLANDISH A CONCEPT IT MUST HAVE SEEMED TO OUR ANCESTORS. WRITING ALLOWED PEOPLE TO COPY AND TRANSFER THEIR THOUGHTS AND THEIR TRIBAL CODES OF CONDUCT TO OTHERS, EVEN UNTO GENERATIONS THEY THEMSELVES WOULD NOT LIVE TO PERSONALLY INSTRUCT, AFFECT OR CONTROL. THE WORDS THEMSELVES MUST HAVE SEEMED ALIVE AND IMMORTAL AND AS “HOLY” AS GHOSTS. WRITTEN LAW WAS THUS A WAY OF MASTERING TIME AND INFLUENCING THE FUTURE, A WEAPON GREATER THAN FIRE AND STEEL, I HOPE YOU’LL AGREE. WHEN READ, THE WRITTEN WORD MADE THE HEAD BUZZ AND RING AND FILL UP WITH VOICES AND COMMANDS FROM NOWHERE, AS IF GOD HIMSELF HAD COME THUNDERING DOWN THROUGH THE SYMBOLS, OFF THE PAGE AND INTO THE ROOM, FERTILISING AND IMPREGNATING THE MIND WITH HIS GHOSTLY, UNMISTAKABLE PRESENCE.” -GRANT MORRISON
