World & Cosmos
«Cosmos«. Katsimbalís asks what do I mean by cosmos! I mean the World, of course, as does any Greek when he pronounces the word. Only with this difference — that when originally the Greek said cosmos it meant “the world» — not a world, or world. To-day «world» means anything and everything. There is no World anymore. There are only worlds-plural always. The World- «cosmos» – ís gone. To make a world again, a cosmos, We must have new men with new eyes, Man must be re-endowed with a soul. This world, our world of to-day, belongs not to man, nor even the beast, but to the machine. Alors, down Wlth the World P the Cosmos.
Henry Miller – First Impressions of Greece
