Script Excerpt from CLAY CONTINENT

Excerpt from Clay Continent

It is said that Cleopatra was fond of sticking gold pins into the breasts of her slave girls and enjoyed their cries and writhings. You will say that this was relatively speaking, in a barbarian age; that our age is also barbarian, because pins are also being stuck in people; that even today, though man has learned to see more clearly on occasion than he did in barbarian ages, he is still far from having habituated himself to behave according to the dictates of reason and science.

Of course, who can tell what people may think up out of boredom! After all, gold pins are also stuck into bodies out of boredom. What’s rotten, and this is again myself speaking is that, for all we know, people might even welcome the gold pins.
