The Lost World
Some believe what separates men from animals is our ability to reason. The others say it’s language or romantic love or opposable thumbs. Living here in this lost world I’ve come to believe it’s more than our biology. What truly makes us human is our unending search our abiding desire for immortality. From a flower to adorn a garden to a theory that will rock the world. Some seek in death what they failed to achieve in life; building elaborate tombs as if to cage their own souls. Even as I write this I wonder will anybody ever read these words. Perhaps not, but if you do than all I ask is for you to remember me.

Divide and rule, you see. Why should we change now when it's worked so well?"
