we accept ideas and quotes and concepts as absolute pillars of society
but dont immediately acknowledge they were created by people…
thousands of years ago yes, but they were human beings just like us
egyptian culture…latin…greek philosophy…the fucking wheel….
when was the last time you really fathomed that all these things that make up our societal fabric developed through human communication and innovation. its amazing to think about…these things arent just school subjects.
whos to say that someone walking this earth today can’t have the same impact
there are people with immense intelligence but rarely does anyone think that longterm. in the year 3000 they’ll have to look back at us.
what will they see?
So, we can raise a collective fuck.
