The deeper we penetrate the labyrinths of various geneologies in our field the more we have to move in a southern and south-easterly direction. The north was developed by the south and through the power of the south; not the other way round. The USA, England, France, The Netherlands or Germany became the developing countries of the deep time cultures of Egypt, India, Mesopotamia, and the Byzantine, Greek, and Roman advanced civilizations. It is time that we acknowledge this history with an Institute for Southern Modernities [ISMs] and begin to turn the circumstances around.
