Only the lost ones see an illusion of a future just like the past. The rest of us struggle, as I do, with the need to call to action but without the confidence of ignorance. In fact burdened with the growing sense that there is no way past the wall of greed, ignorance, and emotional hatred that defines us.

We seem to be made of these things with only a limited and hard earned rationality to help find the way. But we are unable to remove ourselves completely from the process that puts us in a quantum mechanical state. Our rationality is bound to that which makes us irrational and causes us to choose that which destroys our objectivity.

The only answer seems to be the processing tools we can build without our limitations. They can, maybe, lead us through the maze that we can’t quite understand. But the more we know the more that frightens us, too.

I’m afraid we will need to bet everything to find out. And those too frightened to see anything will fight to stop us not realizing that the only option is death.

Perhaps this is exactly what we need. To be forced into evolutionary diversity.
