we are only human, we love to enforce our beliefs with the eons of faith, war, love and hate that exist in the wake of history’s echoing timeline. that which has gone before us keeps us stable where we are. it provides for us a sense of security. it gives us comfort to know that we are not the first. but what solace can there be in the past? what comfort in an ultimately uncertain history? how can we rest in antiquity? why cast our anchors at the beginning of the journey? where are we going? what does it mean to be here, now?
