22:54"For some decades now, discourses of terminal lament and epochal change have multiplied. We have heard about the destruction of our common culture, the death of literature, and the end of nature; and we have been experiencing the social transformations wrought by such phenomena as disorganized capitalism, late capitalism, flexible accumulation, post-industrialism, the service economy, the post-scarcity economy, the information age, the third wave, postcoloniality, postmodernity, postnationalism, and globalization. For some, we are witnessing no less than the emergence of posthumanity or, still more urgently, ultra-humanity." — Frederick Buell
