|The Age of Light is upon us|
All that in the midst of the usual prescription of increasing economic tension, political international sabre-rattling, human failure and failed predictions of gloom and doom, on two separate dates yet. Let us not forget the past, the previous destruction of humanity and civility by any means, since Nov 11th Remembrance has also come and gone yet again, while the world is still at war.
What shall we then concentrate upon?
I recently published Morgidoo's Christmas Carol, a new Christmas classic as an Ebook, and the subject of the Age of Light happened to be involved.
--The light from the Great Silver Bell and all that.
A mere story, a work of fiction, a figment of a writer's imagination, ---or is it?
Here at Incoming Bytes it always behooves us to examine such fascinating possibilities. Weird stuff. The unexpected, "incoming bytes " heading our way.
It is not a coincidence that one of the most interesting observations in life may be that writers not only record history and the past for posterity, but also to some degree, in fiction and literature, imagine,create, extrapolate, project, and somehow pen the details of the future, at times with unerring accuracy. It is not a coincidence.
It is not a coincidence that the "age of dirty oil", pipelines, and choking greenhouse gases is not sustainable, nor is it wise to insist upon following that path .
It is not a coincidence that the nuclear disaster in Fukushima, Japan occurred, with radiation spreading as we speak.
It may, therefore also not be a coincidence that the favourite heading picture of Incoming Bytes is that of blinding sunlight in a morning sunrise.
Sunlight is the greatest, cleanest and most powerful force in nature--one that is easily harvested. Sunlight is free, universal, and endless. It is the ideal alternative energy.
Nor is the symbolism of the Age of Light and the Great Silver Bell in Morgidoo's Christmas Carol lost as a guidepost to the future--and with faith and belief, offering HOPE for mankind.
I'm hoping you'll read it some day. There is a reason for everything, including coincidence, destiny, and fiction. Perhaps one day we shall all understand that reality.
All we have to do is actually be smart enough to identify the signs already pointing us in the direction of the Age of Light. If we collectively set our minds to the job at hand, our civilization can be reinvented and a new Age of Light shall be upon us.
Think about it. Start now.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it
