    またもや脳構造の話ですが、 訳の確認をしたいのでよろしくお願いします!!! As we use what the scociologist Daniel Bell has called our " intellectual technologies" ――the tools that extend our mental rather than our physical capasities ――we inevitably begin to take on the qualities of those technologies. The mechanical clock , which came into common use in the 14th century , provides a compelling example. In Technics and Civilization, the historian and cultural critic Lewis Mumford described how the clock " disassociated time from human events and helped create the belief in an independent world of mathematically measurable sequences." The " abstract framework of divided time " because " the point of reference for both action and thought."

    ''It was the best of times, it was the worst of times." The Victorian age was one of soaring ambition, technological wonder, and awesome grandeur, as well as ugliness, and misery on an unprecended scale. The Victorians knew life was changing faster than ever before, and they recorded that change in paintings that were the cinema of their day. These paintings aren't fashionable, and they don't generally change hands for millions of pounds in auction rooms, but to me they're a gold mine, they show us like nothing else what it was like to live in those incredible times, and they tell amazing stories. The most dramatic story of the age was the explosion of giant cities. To our Victorian forefathers they were a terrific shock. When Queen Victoria came to the throne, people were at best uneasy at, and at worst utterly terrified by these vast gatherings of humanity. Nothing like them had existed before. But by the time she died, the men and women of the age had pioneered an entirely new way of living: they had invented the modern city. At the dawn of the 19th century, Britain was on the move. Rumours had reached even the remotest villages and hamlets of incredible developments just over the horizon. Towns bigger than anyone could imagine, astouding new machines, and money to be made for those ready to take the risk. My own great-great-great-grandfather was in that tide of humanity that left the land in search of a better life. He, his wife and four of their children travelled to the industrial north by barge. They didn't really know what they'd find here, but they did know what they were leaving behind, and whatever they were to find here, it was better than begging for handouts or going hungry.
