As I’ve already established here, we should see the collective of humanity as but a single entity: Our very civilization itself, something that’s best perceived as aging and maturing exactly the same way as does any other dynamic living thing! Each different generation of mankind? Taken as being just like a year in the life of one person!
Yet just as with all things in life, proper perspective and understanding is essential. In moving forward, however, we must also remember to continue looking all around us: Including where we came from before. All the more, it is my firmest belief that the many different sacred works and religious beliefs we possess emerged directly from our true Creator – no less, likely to be the last direct communications our world will receive from that divinity for a long time still to come.
Even so, we ought to remember the fact that the so-called “intended audience” for these works was one for whom the Earth still stood at the very center of all Creation itself! All things existing in all places – everything and everywhere, for everyone – encircled and so orbitted this marvelous little pale blue dot we all lived, loved and inevitably died upon. The mere idea of outer space, some endless dark and frozen vacuumous abyss which separates all those (equally unknown kinds of) celestial bodies (being other stars, planets, black holes, dark matter or energies, along with whole other galaxies – and so very much more!) from one another… well, it simply wasn’t so much as an idea to anyone just yet, nary even a single soul!
