In my last blog post, 170720, I broached the topic of prophets.  I went so far out on that no-no societal limb as to call myself a prophet.  Well, that got some rolling of eyes, but mostly it provided a great sub-topic to avoid the post’s topic.  As always when people, as a rule, are faced with the proverbial “inconvenient truth.”

Be that as it may (and all the rest) I’m going to briefly, oh, so very briefly, demonstrate the concept of prophecy by quoting one.

There isn’t much to add to that, is there.

    Those who know about the cosmic radio know there’s nothing new. The games we observe are transparent, their outcomes foregone conclusions. How unfortunate that our grandchildren’s children will never see a rhino in the wild. Avarice and ignorance will destroy us all. Here’s one for your collection.

    “This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased.” – Charles Dickens

      Thanks for your comment, Phil. A truly memorable line from “A Christmas Carol.”

      I agree with you, except, perhaps the “nothing new” part. While it is true that there is nothing new when broken down to its simplest components, the components themselves can choose to “create” something new with imagination and desire. If it is a truly utopian dream it may not take root on a world as twisted as this one at this late stage in civilization’s devolution. But a dreamer isn’t bound by time, history nor statistics. We can talk “now” about what we plan to bring about so others get a glimpse, perhaps add their two-bits to the idea, but we can wait a very long time for our utopia to manifest itself. My own quasi-utopian earth is set to come about in a thousand years. That’s actually a very short time span considering the changes I envision having taken place by then. This is how we do it – we recognize the bad patches but we don’t go down in them, being anchored into a future that current destroyers cannot do anything about. The dinosaurs of avarice (greed) and ignorance must first die off completely before something “new” can be brought about. For those who choose to participate in the renewal there will be much self-sacrifice and terrible losses along the way but compassion through genuine self-empowerment will win out in the end. All the forces of hell and heaven combined cannot stand against such power. “Thus speaketh the prophet.” 🙂
