The Term

Is that, to the extent in which the past seems not even more objective and is modernized in files, i.e. deposited in places where we can keep them in the form of our way of writing, automatically think that history is linked to the knowledge of a dethroned past. When he spoke to them of writing, remember, I showed them that history is also inscribed in the experience of societies, which are ritually, commemorated; put another way, is there another way to write what we have defined as a State of rite, i.e. write once linked to the sign not in what has formal (our writing fonosemiografica), but what is conceptual. Briefly, we have shown that many societies which we have said are without history, in fact they wrote, but writing by what we call rite.

The rite is a deed that also memorizes, but is not saved files: files that have no existence that are dramatic, i.e. are festively represented is. Under these conditions, they realize that there are no societies without history, simply there are societies that are different from our archive system. Explains why in a commemorative feast, in the most of the society we judge (because they are not part of ours) ridiculous, there’s always masks. These masks, in reduced number, represent the elderly, the founders of the community. But why they wear those masks? Because, precisely, in ceremony there is a creativity that is put in place: have the commemoration. The ancestors, at that time, had them in the strict sense of the term, i.e. that you yourselves are the ancestors of which you have masks.

God knows all the bestiality that have been written about that, because we have a beautiful and well done kind of writing. Our ancestors, are on our roles. Others have them in sight. In one case, we have, on the other, they have us.
