In Elizabethan times of the 16th century, there was no Loyal Opposition so no one could get into Government by opposing.
So one would climb the greasy pole of political opposition, but to get into Government one would need to leap from the top of the greasy pole of opposition to the ranks of the Goverment.
This was fraught with peril as those in opposition would call you a traitor, and those in Government would try to repel you.
In the same way today the Government of literacy, which privileges the eye, repels those of us coming to our senses.
The literary eye is a jealous eye, yes, the literary eye is jealous of the new democracy of the senses, such as the proprioceptive sense and the tactile sense. And the eye naturally wishes to maintain its place of privilege.
But every time we log on, the privilege of the eye is undermined, and the other senses are set free.
And as our sense ratios change under the experience of the electronic media, it is as though we are changing horses in midstream.
It is just like changing political horses in 16th century Elizabethan England in the time of Shakespeare - it is fraught with peril.
Shakespeare commonly littered his stage with bodies, and as we try to change horses in midstream, some of us will fall under the hooves of our horses, and our bodies will be washed downstream.
