Here’s some stuff that never made it into my essay…thought I’d share it. My essay was about the ‘Nunnerator’. This is where I end my essay, but I have one more point to make and I reckon it is way too far-fetched to be considered a justifiable reason as to why a frame narrative is […]
Henry Dark aka Peter Stilman, has all these theories about the tower of babel, fall of men, fall of language that I got really confused about because he doesn’t link (or very vaguely he does) any of them back to how it would actually help with mankind learning the language of god. When I say we […]
Read my blogpost about Peter Stilman’s theories, it may help with your understanding of this post 🙂 Anyone else noticed the similarities between Peter Stilma Jr. and Quinn?

I lost the original, so this terrible photo of it, which I sent to my Mum on a whim, will have to do!
Also, cheers for a fun year everybody!!
For my essay rewrite, I plan to revisit Rousseau’s Discourse on Inequality.
