I'm not sure that ALL pre-modern societies interpreted "the present as a continuation of the past", and "changes as temporary disturbances of the natural state". The first exception that comes to my mind are the israelites, who did consider the past (Eden, Flood, captivity in Egypy, roaming in the desert, exiles, destruction of the Temple) as radically different from their present, and with very specific sections. I hope you can read this, Michael (although it is very unlikely, since there are more than 47,000 comments right now) because I think it could lead to a very good discussion.

If you asked me to get up when I thought 10 years had gone by, I’d get up in 10 hours, and flat out lie about it. “*yawn*, yup, that’s about 10 years. I’m bored, time to go.”

My grandma has once told me something like this: "When you are old, you start to realise how distant events were actually very close. Like the revolution". She meant Russian Revolution. It happened 34 years before her birth - "very long ago". But now she is more than 2 times older. 69 years old. And it both seems to her like it wasn't so long before her birth... and that it was a very distant event.
