Descripción
This animated history of writing has taken you around the world and through the millenia. Now let's look back on your journey. Contemplate the various writing systems you've met and the civilizations that invented them. Consider the choices and tradeoffs they made, and the tensions that pulled scribes in one direction or another. Finally, at long last, wake up from the slumber induced by Thoth's Pill, and ask yourself what writing means to you now that you've seen it for what it really is.
