December 30 2008

“Do you know how it feels to be alone?” She asked. “Do you know how it feels to be utterly lost? To feel your soul diminishing before your very eyes. Why is it vanishing? Because there is no one who thinks, who loves, who lives anymore. You are alone. The bodies around you move but they give no meaning. The faces bear expressions, expressions without passions behind them. You live among carcasses of humanity. You do not ask for minds that think the same things you do. You do not ask for souls that believe the same things you do. You do not ask for hearts that love the same things you do except this one thing, that they love humanity; that they embrace who they are, loving knowledge and wisdom and the life of the mind. So many, it seems, have lost the truth of their existence, that is, that we are those who seek in this universe. We, humanity, are those who study, employ, invent, create, discover, and explore. It is our minds that elevate us, our minds that define us. Who are you, oh human soul, if not the traveler of ideas, the voyager of new worlds, the inquisitive and impassioned scholar?”
