The age of human civilization is given the name “the bend” based on a re-examination of the emergence of science, science theory content, and history.

Civilization, existing over its course, in darkness to the nature of its partnership with the elements, oscillates in a romance that alternates between logical explanation, the rational, and illogical as they are presented to him from the external. Its’ course, set on the logical sorting of the worlds elements, life experience, necessarily reflects those conditions, and thus emerges to parallel perceptions in a similar manner. If in reflections alternate conditions do not exist that do not exceed his perceptions and physically applied cognitions a potentially blinded, self defining course exists. Both civilization and separate nature are, in this circumstance, though mutually equal as entities of perspective dependant logic and illogic, potentially pursue parallel though unequal courses. It is necessarily the case that actual path differentials, composed of logical and illogic are the real enumerator of life kinds footing. Prominent scholarly works, judged to be exemplary of historical behavior and that focus on the emergence of path will be critically examined in order to argue that civilization and its’ external spaces are modulated differentially-one, (civilization), by its’ own will as a construct of the experienced logical and illogical, the other (nature) by its’ empathy for the future, the open, a repulsion of the past but not the contiguity of its’ path. The era of human civilization will be named the “bend” to reflect both an innate property of nature and an evolved division between the course of nature and that of mankind.
