Daily Draw: Animal Totem Tarot ~ Tower/Termite
Termites are eusocial with a highly developed social system where everyone has and knows its place. And like bees and ants, have managed to survive intact over eons.
I'm reminded by this card human society over millions of years has always been a case of build the tower, blow the tower, build again. New faces, same old places, same old story. I'm reading Dinosaurs Without Bones in which the ancient tracks are expected to tell the whole social story. Can't be done in my opinion. Our ancient cycles of human history are mostly mute, subject to interpretation and opinion based on very little. I hope my history is part of the building, not the blowing.
"Some primal termite knocked on wood.
And tasted it, and found it good.
And that is why your Cousin May
Fell through the parlor floor today." ~ Ogden Nash 1902-1971 Good Intentions
