725,324 days ago we got all the solutions to all the problems.
That equals 17,407,776 hours; or 1,044,466,560 minutes; or 62,667,993,600 seconds.
That’s right: 1,985 years, 10 months and 12 days ago we got all the answers to sexism, racism, slavery, imperialism, colonialism, totalitarianism, ecology and the environment, finance, government, society, justice, propriety, science, tradition, hope, joy, love, family, faith and all the rest.
20 centuries later, we are only now beginning to realize the futurist gleam of the greatest life ever lived, and the great document that recorded that life: an entire testament dedicated just to you.
Despite what Disney and so many others would have you believe, these solutions are eternal. Why? Because at the core of all these injustices and errors — is Man and his endless generations.
And the core of Man is his heart.
No, not his mind — his heart.
Technology is born of science, and science can only master the material world simply because matter and energy cannot change their mind. Man can change his mind, yes, but his heart often seems far colder than his thoughts.
Exactly what “past” is it Disney is trying to get you to “move on” from?
- Are you still wearing powdered wigs?
- Still coming to work in a horse-drawn carriage?
- Are you making all your clothes on a loom?
- Lose a few beads on your abacus?
- Broke a wooden wheel on your chariot?
- Can’t figure out your butter churn?
- Haven’t oiled your gladius in a while?
- Having to write down your thoughts on parchment or lamb’s skin?
No, you’re not.
Everyone has already moved on from the past — that’s exactly why it’s called the “past.”
The Amish and all those Stone Age tribes in the Amazon (or anywhere else) have chosen to live in the past, but the present is certainly available to them.
No, there is only One Past so many want you to abandon simply because it is one thing that has survived to the present… and it will survive into the future.
Do you know why?
It is eternal.
Guess what a synonym for eternal is?
The past they want to destroy is indestructible and that is exactly why they are afraid of it.
And it is indestructible precisely because it is true.
So instead of trying to uproot this excellent part of our past — this singular inheritance, this unique love letter – why don’t we start living up to it?
All our problems (locally, nationally, globally) exist only because so many of us have not changed our hearts.
There is only one eternal image, one indestructible icon, you should be concerning yourself with.
Reject it, and you will remain trapped in the very wreckage of the world you so wish “someone, somewhere” could fix. And you will definitely find someone to blame, I can assure you. Of course, you’ll exonerate yourself.
As for Disney, I can assure you they will not fix it. Neither will Google nor Facebook repair it. Their profits are in line with their invasive and overbearing wills and desire the world remain separated from its indestructible past.
Well, that past is yours: eternal, indestructible, and true.
It is their past too. In fact, it belongs to everyone, but so many would rather shake their fists at an imaginary enemy than open their hand to new friends and family.
Put on this one image, this one icon, this Everlasting Man, and you will have Eden within the reach of your arm.
And everyone in Eden is family.
It’s the better deal.
It’s the better you.
