THE ASCENT OF MAN. PART II: CONDITIONS OF MERCY
The title of the second part ’Conditions of Mercy’ refers to religion, a key element of a certain American imagery. After all, the Man who disclaims his capital ’M’ is he not the same who faithfully sings "we are the world"? Fall is the condition of mercy. Views of the earth from the skies, from the clouds, from parachutists, astronauts, even a cat continuously falling on his feet. Then, balloons float up towards the clouds. The fall is reversed : Ascension.
