“They saw their injured country's woe;
The flaming town, the wasted field;
Then rushed to meet the insulting foe;
They took the spear, - but left the shield.”
The world is so full of wonders few of us know anything about I estmate it would take least a thousand lifetimes even to begin to know the first thing about all of them.Flying PENGUINS? Whoever would have thought it possible?What next? –– walking fish that have established colonies on remote stretches of land on the islands of Java, Sumatra, and Borneo, or in the Australian Outback? Pterodactyls still breeding and flying all over the upper reaches of Greenland and Baffin Island?A tribe of miniature tree-dwelling human beings with red eyes, webbed digits and long tails living peaceably as vegetarians in an uncharted part of the South American Jungle?An archaeological discovery of a prehistooric library in an unknown tongue, unrelated to any language fwe know living or dead, from the lost continent of Atlantis?Perhaps a discovery that Aliens from Outer Space have been living among us for several hundred years, but have remained heretofore undetected, because they are able assume our form and master our languages in a matter of minutes?The possibiities are endless. Whatever we can imagine, I'm sure either exists –– or has existed –- somewhere at some time. Many today fear mankind is about to become extinct. I tend to believe, since we live in ETERNITY, that we have already extiguished ourselves many many times, and have regenerated anew only to have to begin the long struggle to develop Civilization all over again. I'm thinking AEONS here.Twinkle, twinkle, Little Star. How I wonder what you are!INDEED!
