Beware your temples to your gods and the stone statues of your heroes as they are with little doubt fictions created by those that assume to be your betters. The radical thought of yesteryear is the underlying most logical assumption of today. The great grandson of Noah, Nimrod, the Hebrew bible tells us is the inventor of the modern skyscraper. A believer in what would one day be called Dialectic Materialism, which proclaims that Man originates History through active consciousness, ran afoul of the more supreme of heavenly powers. His building project promised total indemnity from all acts of universal chaos and subsequent employment was offered to any who would accept the notion that mankind ruled supreme int he universe. Declining any further flood insurance Nimrod was confident that the danger of recurrent flooding would not be any further impediment as a result of the latest innovations in technology. What he didn’t expect is that all of a sudden, unexpectedly, no one could understand the complex languages nor read the master plan. A failure of communication that haunts us especially today.
The way to keep any group of people in their place is to lock them up in total dependency of their own inventions and then throw away the key of knowledge. Sort of like being in a high rise and not being able to grow your own food or port you own water, or flush the toilet when the electricity goes off. The groups that rule us all have definitely taken this silver lining from that three millennia old mythic tale to put in their modern playbook. If you can’t beat them with a frontal assault hit them where they least expect it! Today, that equates to Internet savvy and the progressive march of electronic marketable technology. Our offspring take these things in like mother’s milk while the rest of us fall farther behind and impotent to confront the latest trends that become, for the brief span of fifteen minutes, standard operating procedure for all of society. That is until the next communications device for mental crowd control is released with appropriate media panache. It’s almost as if the big game is never to let anyone get too comfortable with the latest product release and be able to really plumb the depths of what the multiplicity of features and needful accessories with do to both pocket book and privacy. We are all caught in a horse race to finish line of oblivion.
