Splash du Jour: Wednesday

The world is not to be put in order; the world is order incarnate. It is for us to harmonize with this order.
-- Henry Miller --

Have a great Wednesday!

This is one of the fundamental problems with being a human being. Typically, without great effort, we are unable to see the big picture. If we walk into the pristine woods, or the jungle, everything seems like chaos.

We don't see that each element, as random as it seems to us, serves a purpose in an order that is too large to see. In fact, I wonder what place we serve in this order. Our society seems inherently self-destructive; what role does this serve in the overall scheme of things?

I'm reading Sexus right now, and this is is one of the last paragraphs I read before going to sleep lastnight.

Ahhh, very much so Kingmonkey!
Agreed. As to your last question... well, man [mankind] is a great creator, but wow... also a colossal destroyer.

Shark, that is too funky!
I can't believe you are reading the very thing I posted. That is kismet, man!
