Most folks have little indication of their impending doom.
And ‘nobody moves, nobody gets hurt’ is the cultural sentiment of cautious survivors desiring longer lives that expresses the fact that shakers and movers are taking a risk and it’s likely bigger than they think.
The fact is that our endeavours can and often do ravage the individuals who initiate them, making it incumbent upon the purveyor to ensure that their pursuits are noble and they have counted the cost. Cause for sure there is one.
No pregnant woman plans to expire during childbirth and initiators begin their discoveries in a similar vein but some of them soon start pushing the perimeters of sound thinking toward wildly uncertain outcomes.
As a result, history is littered with the abbreviated existence of unfortunate perceivers who failed to heed the truth about people being devoured by their aspirations.
- Pirillos of Athens was the builder and first person tortured in his brazen bull (dude had quite the imagination)
- Thomas Andrews helped design and died on the Titanic
- Horace Lawson Hunley helped create the American civil war submarine which killed him on its second voyage
- Otto Lilienthal built and died in the world’s first glider
Every human, whether blazing new trails or polishing the path of others, must recognize and prepare for shite to go sideways
because ignorance of the future spells suffering of the
most cruel and needless variety. As creators it is
imperative that we understand the gravity
of our choices and remind ourselves at
all times that everything we say or
do can and will be held against
us in evolution’s response.
Thank you, friend.
