. Sufficient un to the day. Todays needs are todays wants. Tomorrow or next week or next month never bothered the brain or thinking power of Ancient Man. Or Woman. They all died young before they had time to gather their thoughts and envisage an existance outside their own. No Books to write things down. No recorders. Each new Generation born as ignorant of Life and Living as a stone lying on the ground. And so it was for a million years. Self perpetuating ignorance. If it were not so why did it take so long to advance intellectually? No standing on the shoulders of Giants here. Sometime along our journey to the Future High Priests evolved. They developed a limited overview. An inner circle with access to accumulated knowledge of a limited nature. Enough to implement a policy of discrimination and intimidation of their Tribal People. Control became the new intelligence. Control hopefully could ensure survival of the Tribe. In these modern times does all this sound familiar to you? Are we still being Dumbed down? And when the next generation is born, what will they bring with them? Perhaps a Genetic improvement to facilitate steep learning curves? Greater perception of new Technology and implementing same? Living and developing longer, ensuring a more rapid advancement of the Human Condition? Lets hope so. westwind.
