". . . But the past does not exist independently from the present. Indeed, the past is only past because there is a present, just as I can point to something over there only because I am here. But nothing is inherently over there or here. In that sense, the past has no content. The past -- or more accurately, pastness -- is a position. Thus, in no way can we identify the past as past." p. 15

". . . But we may want to keep in mind that deeds and words are not as distinguishable as often we presume. History does not belong only to its narrators, professional or amateur. While some of us debate what history is or was, others take it into their own hands." p. 153

Television Series, Hieroglyph - Coming Soon!

Hieroglyph features Pharaoh's private investigator -- a thief, plucked from prison. Fox.

My prophesy is this series will be panned by puffers and 'critics' because spelling 'hieroglyph' and pharaoh' will be too much of a pain.  Otoh, t&a + violence quotient in 'exotic' milieu may be just what the doctor ordered.

Doesn't he just look dynastic Egyptian as eff? Or -- Is he Young Merln all grown up? Or -- backwards as Merlin's legend has it? Also why is your name Ambrose?

Why are most of the principals white?

Description plus trailer, here. Is it a spoiler if it is suggested that while watching the trailer watch out for the fangs?
