That's exactly the point. Based on a cyclical theory of history, Finnegans Wake assumes that there is nothing new under the sun—that human civilization is an ongoing pattern of rising and falling, building and destroying, death and rebirth. We are all part of that larger pattern, which is fundamentally embedded in the very language(s) we speak.
