Message from Babel: Congested Time

The Tower of Babel / The Pit of Babel by Franz Kafka

The Tower of Babel
If it had been possible to build the tower of Babel without ascending it, the work would have been permitted.

The Pit of Babel
What are you building? – I want to dig a subterranean passage. Some progress must be made. My station up there is much too high. We are digging the pit of Babel.

(A collection of Franz Kafka's stories.)
