Dalrymple on the modern city:

  • constant stimulation
  • kaleidoscopic or hallucinatory variety
  • energy
  • pullulation
  • a never-sleeping quality
  • anxiety
  • agitation
  • superficial contact among people
  • unrootedness
  • universal impermanence
  • mutual incomprehension
  • enclosure in mental and social ghettos
  • paranoia as a way of life
  • egotism
  • solipsism

O rus, quando ego te aspiciam? (Hor.)

Bewilderment, precursor of paranoia
