The Confusion of Tongues by Gustave Doré (1865)

! DISSENT ! dissidência ! несогласие ! 反対意見 ! 異議 ! معارضة ! असहमति ! ไม่เห็นด้วย ! DISS ! مخالفت ! dissidència ! upinzani ! 이의를 말하다 !
5 And the Lord came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men builded.
6 And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
7 Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.
8 So the Lord scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.
9 Therefore is the name of it called Babel; because the Lord did there confound the language of all the earth: and from thence did the Lord scatter them abroad upon the face of all the earth.

Once again in the story of Man, We are a people of one language and one culture.  11/11/11 will go down in History as the day Mankind awoke to recognize its destiny in the stars...
