Whereas, 'amanuensis', comes from the literate world that is barely 200 years old.
And the Bible warns us of graven images, preparing us for the invention of the printing press in 1440, giving rise to the dream of universal literacy, only achieved in the last 200 or so years, and at first only in the West.
The seer is vouchsafed visions or images, while the amanuensis appears on the surface to be a mere clerk, but he holds the key to meaning.
And be not fooled - always remember Clerk Kent is superman.
And if you don't believe me, look what universal literacy has achieved over the last 200 years.
But the world is changing. We have moved from tribal illiteracy to universal literacy. And now we are moving from literacy to electronic tribalism.
Now, now is the right time for the seer and the amanuensis to work together.
