Another thread made me think about this. It was a discussion about political cycles and such. Could it be that we are about to destroy our civilization just like the Romans did? Do we really only progress so far until the lowest among us drag us right down to the dark ages again? Or do we create monsters to do it for us, like Al Qaeda? It is just my opinion that we are about to get to the point where all people are valued and treated fairly. Could it be that once we get there, we get so bored and content that we destroy it all to start all over and experience it all again just because we're bored? It's sad to think, but this idea has been nagging at me for a while. Are we really this stupid? Do we get to a point where we've built so much up that we need to tear it all down to be interested in life again, just like a puzzle- or do we find an entirely new challenge? OK, I'm the bummer for the day. But it is definitely something to think about.
