Hi guys,

I have to say that this thoughtful and pertinent post by Scimitar is becoming more bizarre by the day, and it seems clear to me the problem lies obviously with the terminology.

I have enquired of the academic amongst us as to the origin of this most peculiar coinage "HYPER-DIFFUSION", but to no avail; I have looked it up online but no-one it seems dares admit to such a terminological atrocity.
So one is left with no alternative but to analyse the components of this strange hybrid:

HYPER[ from the Greek ]: "over"; "above"; "too".
DIFFUSION[ latin ]: "dispersed from a common centre"; "spreadout".

What can one make of this unlikely conjunction??

What has this "overly spreadout dispersion from a common centre got to do with NAZIS..? RACISTS....? ETHNOCENTRICS?.........;with the cultural evolution of the human species............fer chrisssakes?????

I mean....., I mean, let's try and get back to a semblance of reality and attempt to understand the works of our common antecedents without prejudice of any kind; without personal intrigues, agendas; aspirations of academic accolades if we toe the accepted line.

Let's.., why don't we..., just acknowledge the wonder of those extraordinary creations that have survived the tribulations of time and climate and added immeasurably to the richness of our priceless heritage; does it matter whether they were diffused, hyperdiffused, diaperdiffused.? These, academically imposed verbal innanities are as detrimental to our common heritage as the desert winds..., and those unseasonal rains which seem to have prematurely eroded our most precious heirloom, "that mysterious, magisterial, incomparable..,Sphinx".

With respect, affection, and the occcasional twinge of remorse and despair,

Fiasco.
