The End Today

We make fire. We burn away the poisons in our food. We melt our metals into tools. Tools to weapons of iron and steel. Fighting the entire world just for a meal. Those flames from wood become machines of construction, industry, and destruction. We build structured economic societies, built upon the backs of our fellow humans. Soon we harness power for our own creations, and soon, a few generations become separated from the rest, yet with greater access to communication. Dependent on distractions and stimulations, while “supposedly” becoming more interconnected. But, have we really just lost our ability to work together, really becoming disconnected? Have we grown or have we just changed in a different sort of way, that is the question I ask you today. Would we really be ready for the end today?
