the glowing future

in comparison to the age of the universe with all its glowing lights and furious heat and radiation, the human footprint in the nanosecond of our existence is irrelevant, so far. check out " []" for a great animation of the timeline we're on.

a mere 97% of our own history we spent in darkness, hugging our frightened, freezing bodies with grunts of dismay, huddling, if we were lucky, around a wasteful fire, interpreting its flickering shadows and not understanding the slightest bit of what we perceive. instead, we invented religions, cults and other bullshit to easy our aching minds.

only ever so recently, we learned to control fire. then understood chemical reactions. then suddenly, were able to produce light, reflect it, make it glow, in an explosion of discovery and understanding nature. still struggling with our primordial fears, we sure have not mastered the use of our new insights, but i predict a glowing future, if we continue to try this direction… instead of fixing the holes in our heads with more of the goo that priests and politicians and internet gurus continue to throw at us.

there is no future without these lights. there will be no humanity without bulbs, neon, LED, lasers.
