The Manuscript Found at Saragossa, also called the von Worden manuscript or Saragossa manuscript, described von Worden's experience of false consciousness following apparent exposure to praxis. It was the only known evidence of praxis on Earth in the preindustrial era. It was recovered in the early 19th century by Count Potocki.
Jorge Luis Borges considered the Rivera Manuscript to be a poor imitation of The Manuscript Found at Saragossa, as the two works were both inspired by praxis and shared similar structures. (PROSE: The Book of the War)
Behind the scenes Edit
