On Progress

The soul of the modern world is torn in two. We have progressed unimaginably far but learned embarrassingly little. This has been the reality for many decades, regardless of whether our societies have realized it or not. The crossroads we are at are painfully obvious, though, and we are seeing a worldwide stir as a result of it. People are afraid. They throw their support behind a new ideology seemingly every day when yesterday’s ideas inevitably fail.

Introduction      In a tranquil field far removed from the rest of the world sat two silent souls. They were two men; one withered away by age and the other invigorated with the wonders of youth. The older man, known simply as Mentor, was not blind to the fact that he was living his last days. Thus, he had called his most valued student down to sit and speak with him in the field for one final revelation.   Meditation      They sat in silence at first, each quietly calming their own soul and allowing the other to do the same. The only sound they made was that of their breathing. A cool breeze gently kept them cool in the heat of the midday sun. The muted meditations of the two men then sudde...
