From The Ooze

Daily Draw: Roots of Asia Tarot ~ Ace of Wands

The current incarnation of mindful life on earth is reckoned as coming forward from 195,000 years ago. With the discovery and application of how electricity is naturally created modern culture took a big leap which is still producing wonders with more to come.

I'm reminded by this Ace of Wands, which is always the underpinning of creative life, to wonder what Benjamin Franklin, Leonardo Da Vinci, Nicolaus Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, might have accomplished with the aid of a computer. When the earth goes dark, as it always does eventually, I wonder what great minds will pull us out of the ooze once again.

"Human subtlety will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple or more direct than does nature because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous." ~ Leonardo da Vinci 1452-1519

  1. I wonder if having to rely on their own brains was more helpful (and productive) than the internet. :)

  2. That card is really something. Life as we know it hangs in the balance. I don't think those inventors and scholars would have done as much with Google doing some of the heavy lifting. We each must find our own way, are own path and not rely on the search button on the computer. I agree with you, it all has to come done and begin again.

  3. Pessimistic maybe but then also the narrow minded, the power hungry and the conniving would have internet access too :(

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
