The modern human is not modern because it has destroyed the old.
Evolving, growing, becoming wise, is not the result of negating the beauty and importance of things transpired.
Modernity is not being grounded in the current soil.
Considering a universal spatial and time radius from the point on which today is occurring for the tiny self, is the all encompassing state of being beyond smallness.
The modern mind rejoices today in the manual simplicity of the primal past, while applying current progress with the clarity that will help avoid a future unable to recall what has been.
