Certain situations in the world made me think of this one.
You can not rewrite history. It has happened, it is written and can not be erased, it is in the past. Think about writing the future, it is still a blank page. What we do today effects the future and not the past.
So many things happening in the world that are due to things in the past. I won’t go into them(promised my wife I would keep this blog upbeat) but things that happened 70 years, 100 years, 2000 years ago will not change if you don’t “let it go”(anyone with kids just sung those last three words). The world and humankind have changed so much, especially in the last 200 years, that when things started to take direction back then (Re: Civilisation/Religion) are now moot.
The modern world has no place for the writings from 1800 to 2000 years ago. There is no way they could see how we evolved as people and in technology. Just as we have no idea where we will be in another 2000 years.
No more back and forth. Lets just go forward.
