"We are all like dwarfs standing on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they are but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours"
- John Of Salisbury, 12th century theologian and author
Sir Isaac Newton also made the phrase famous
Well more than likely we will never know but there are and always will be pioneers and leaders within specific fields that will help determine the destiny of man. People that will leave us EXPERIENCES from which we all can learn. From which we MUST learn to SEE further.
Since the evolution of man there have been over one hundred billion of weee human beings that have come and gone. From dust to dust. Then there's US seven billion or so that are alive and kicking for up to another hundred years. Then the skeleton figure will be 107 billion and rising rapidly.
And you know what the difference is between all of the good famous, baaad famous and ordinary famous?
We are ALL dots. Born the same, die the same. None more important than any other. It's just that this GAME we are all involved in called LIFE offers each and every one of us OPPORTUNITIES with an option to take them up. Some do. Most don't. It's where the GIANTS come in. As the quote from John Of Salisbury above says the GIANTS raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours so that we can see further. And that is in a nutshell what is happening with all of weee dots. The wheel (of life) just keeps on turning. But there will be a "chosen" one every now and then who will help change the course of history. We all think that 'someone' is special, more important than us. But in the overall big picture these 'chosen' one's are dots, the SAME as every other one of us in this crazzeee world.
I'm one of the lucky ones. I was given an opportunity through hardship to get rid of the EGO and LOOK. I stood on the Giants' shoulders and could 'SEE' further. Now I have an opportunity to make a difference. And I will.
Because I AM A DOT.
Same as YOU.........
