“There was a silly damn bird called a phoenix back before Christ, every few hundred years he built a pyre and burnt himself up. He must have been first cousin to Man. But every time he burnt himself up he sprang out of the ashes, he got himself born all over again. And it looks like we’re doing the same thing, over and over, but we’ve got one damn thing the phoenix never had. We know all the damn silly things we’ve done for a thousand years and as long as we know that and always have it around where we can see it, somedays we’ll stop making the goddamn funeral pyres and jumping in the middle of them. We pick up a few more people that remember every generation.”
~Fahrenheit 451 Ray Bradbury
It’s true. History will continue to repeat itself if society doesn’t know it’s history. As humans, we are probably the greatest evolved creatures of the world, but we’re still just creatures and we haven’t evolved enough to realize our own mistakes that society perishes in.
As young people and even old folks think they have it all figured out. But this just proves that we really don’t. Time to become part of the evolution growth.
