"What are humans for?" The question continues to echo through me, and I refuse to let it go unanswered. To act as if there's no possible answer negates the purpose of asking the question.
Ours is a great quest. That we can imagine an ideal world presupposes the innate human ability to achieve it. Our purpose is to sanctify the struggle of existence by connecting to that which is heroic within us. While the future of human civilization depends on our virtues, the responsibility of exercising them lies with the individual.
Freedom rests on a foundation of respect for time, and structuring it wisely in order to achieve that which is most desirable to us while temporarily occupying the finite. We can go where we want. It's simply a matter of consistently taking the steps that get us there.
