I'm not persuaded that information or capital, and these two things see each other when they look in the mirror, routes around us; it just feels that way. All day long, it passes through those of us in the abstract class (and this may be what's meant by the content-free term "middle class"; no wonder it promises its own universality). It is more or less what we do all the time, while we are doing other things, "While someone else is eating or opening a window or just walking dully along." This is the truth of globalization, or of our participation in the world-system. And yet we have little experience of it, of the feeling-which-is-not-one of being a node in the great circulation. This is the fact which I take to be at the missing heart of late modernity: a degree of abstraction so great that, among other things, the abstract becomes representational.
