I am currently reading yet another book about war, and caste systems, and religion within a country causing genocide to neighbors.
It really makes me doubtful that war between nations will ever end; when war within countries doesn’t show any advancement.
When religion, skin color, and birth placement seem to trump all else. Since the time of the Crusades, when mercenaries looked up to the sky and saw an eclipse and thought it a sign of God’s Blessing, man has killed because his beliefs, his face, his coloring were right.
Which got me thinking of aliens……….always pictured the same way. Reputable witness accounts describe the same large heads, bug like eyes, “adornless” bodies.
Do these beings come to clone us, breed with us, save us? I think not. I think light years of enlightenment has finally made life in the Universe reach the only answer to sustaining life………make all that life the same.
Sad……..there is such magic in our differences. I think other beings in the Universe come to marvel at it…..to shake their heads in sorrow at how we did not cherish its beauty. I think their homogenized lives are sterile and sparkless, even with the spark of infinite light years of knowledge.
Infinite light years of knowledge is, indeed, wondrous. But something has been lost along the way………
Holding a child with blues eyes, or green, or brown……….with fair skin or bronze……with wavy curls or lustrous long black locks………
Do I think mankind as it is will ever learn………..no……..We have light years to go, if indeed, our races even survive…….
Others who have survived are watching……..shaking their heads in sorrow for all we have destroyed on this beautiful planet’s tapestry of human and animal life.
