We as a species cling to our creature comforts, the things we know, love, and understand. We tend not to veer far off our usual track when it comes to just about everything: culture, politics, religion — we treat it all as though we found the definitive answer to all of our problems long ago, and no further research need be done, no further attention given. But, that isn’t the way things work. Progress doesn’t stop, time only moves forward, and yet here we stand, living anachronisms, out of time, clinging to the remains of the past for longer than we have any sound reason to do so.
