    The good news: we’re dying without even trying! In a sense, that buys humanity time, if you think about it. Heck of a site…thanks, Sybil.

    I meant CASSANDRA. Sorry, fellow philosophers, my head is spinning. Thinking also of Yeats’ “The Second Coming.” Writen in 1919, prior to World War I. He believed that the world reinvented itself every two thousand years, with the last major reinvention being with the birth of Christ.

    Turning and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    Swoon.
