Apokalypse now: 

Leben mit dem Weltuntergang

"Sub specie aeternitatis:

Auch Homer wird einmal nicht mehr bekannt sein.

Der Nachruhm ist wie der glühende Schweif eines Kometen,

der noch einige Zeit hinter dem opus sichtbar ist.

Nun fragt man sich: 

Was hat die Sache überhaupt für einen Zweck?

Das ist der produktive Augenblick selbst.

Außerhalb der Zeit geschieht etwas.

Das Universum hat sich im Individuum bestätigt."

 

Ernst Jünger. Neunzig verweht (1985)

This is the end, my only fried, the end."

The man comes around (2002)

 

 

And I heard as it were the noise of thunder.

One of the four beasts saying "come and see",

and I saw, and behold a white horse.

 

There's a man going around taking names,

And he decides who to free and who to blame.

Everybody won't be treated all the same.

There will be a golden ladder reaching down

When the man comes around.

 

The hairs on your arm will stand up

At the terror in each sip and in each sup.

Will you partake of that last offered cup?

Or disappear into the potter's ground

When the man comes around?

 

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers.

One hundred million angels singing.

Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum.

Voices calling and voices crying,

Some are born and some are dying.

It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come.

 

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree,

The virgins are all trimming their wicks.

The whirlwind is in the thorn tree,

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

 

'Til Armageddon, no salam, no shalom.

Then the father hen will call his chickens home,

The wise man will bow down before the throne.

And at his feet, they'll cast the golden crowns,

When the man comes around.

 

Whoever is unjust, let him be unjust still.

Whoever is righteous, let him be righteous still.

Whoever is filthy, let him be filthy still.

Listen to the words long written down

When the man comes around.

 

Hear the trumpets, hear the pipers.

One hundred million angels singing.

Multitudes are marching to the big kettledrum.

Voices calling and voices crying,

Some are born and some are dying.

It's Alpha and Omega's kingdom come.

 

And the whirlwind is in the thorn tree,

The virgins are all trimming their wicks.

The whirlwind is in the thorn tree,

It's hard for thee to kick against the pricks.

 

In measured hundred weight and penny pound,

When the man comes around.

 

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts,

and I looked and behold, a pale horse.

And his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.

"Wehe aber der Erde und dem Meer!

Denn der Teufel kommt zu euch hinab

und hat einen großen Zorn und weiß, dass er wenig Zeit hat."

Apk 12.12

Terroranschläge und Glaubenskriege, ökologische Katastrophen und Zerstörung uralter Kulturgüter, Flucht und Vertreibung werfen eine uralte Frage auf: Was kommt nach dem Weltuntergang? Eine kulturgeschichtliche Eschatologie fragt nach letzten Haltungen im Angesicht des Unabwendbaren. Sie wagt einen Blick über den Horizont von Raum und Zeit hinaus von Sintflut und Ragnarök zu Dantes Welt von Himmel, Hölle und Fegefeuer. Das literaturwissenschaftlich ausgerichtete Seminar orientiert sich an Endzeitvorstellungen der Bibel und zieht über das geistliche Lied im Barock einen Bogen zu Ernst Jüngers Roman „Auf den Marmorklippen“ (bitte eine beliebige Ausgabe anschaffen) und Ulrich Horstmann (www.untier.de).

"Die Herrlichkeit der Erden muß Rauch und Asche werden,

kein Feld, kein Erz kann stehn.

Dies, was uns kann ergötzen,

was wir für ewige schätzen,

wird als ein leichter Traum vergehn."

(Andreas Gryphius EG 527.1)

WE’LL MEET AGAIN 

 

 

We'll meet again

don't know where don't know when.

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day.

Keep smiling through just like you always do.

Til' the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

 

And will you please say hello to the folks that I know

tell them that I won't be long.

And they'll be happy to know, that you saw me go

I was singing this song.

 

We'll meet again.

Don't know where- Don't know when.

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day.

 

Yeah we'll meet again

and I don't know where and I don't know when

but I do know that we'll meet again some sunny day.

 

So hunny, keep on smiling through

just like you always do.

Till' the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away.

 

And would you please say hello

to all the folks that I know.

And tell em I won't be long.

They'll be happy to know

that as you saw me go

I was singing this song.

We'll meet again

Don't know where

Don't know when.

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
