Classic Korzybski Quote: "On Human-Being and Time"

Would that Heidegger could write as clearly as this: 
Perhaps, neurologically, animals feel similarly as we do about`time', but they have no neurological means to elaborate linguistic and extra-neural means which alone allow us to extend and summarize the manifold experience of many generations (time-binding) . They cannot pass from `time' to `times'. Obviously, if we do not, we then renounce our human characteristics, and copy animals in our evaluating processes, a practice which must be harmful." —Alfred Korzybski, ( Science and Sanity, p. 231)
