Ep. 4 – The Wilted Chrysanthemum

 

Ninth piece recorded by The Raconteur. The language in which The Raconteur speaks is an interesting one from an historical perspective. It’s only one of several thousand that we’ve discovered evidence of, but it’s the only one we’ve actually gotten to hear spoken aloud. Of course, so few in the world can actually “speak” it well enough to be able to listen to his recordings before the translation has taken place.

“What distinguishes a human being from any of the other living creatures with which they share a planet? It is a foreknowledge of their own demise. How one proceeds in this knowledge is how one is determined to be either a person of virtue, or a person of scorn. What if what happens to a person after death were determined by the way they were thought of by those left behind?”
