‘When the first anthropoid stood erect and picked up a stone to throw at an enemy, man took his first cautious step out of the here and now. The idea that, after its brief flight trough the air, the stone could knock out the enemy can be seen as the moment when awareness of the future was born. In throwing the stone, man was in a sense catapulting himself out of the realm of birds, animals and plants. A crucial split occurred in the throwers head. One part controlled the body and was anchored in the present, just as it has always been, but the other small part unfurled out of the present beyond the present, to a possible future event in the world: the stone striking the enemies head.’ (from: The Absence of Mark Manders, p. 167-177)
