CUMMINS: Space and time change everything

Three things concern me — space, time and change, which is the toughest one. Here we are milling about in infinite space as warped time speeds through it, and we’re to adapt to it?  When you break the cosmos down into human terms, it makes no sense. Let’s examine these three components and see if we can guess, “What in heaven are we doing here?” There is a fourth component — people, but it’s a waste of time analyzing this mysterious composite of flesh and blood encased in a thick skull on top.

Yes, we need people at rare times in the space we’re in. We need people to talk or text with. When floundering within our space, we need listen to those passing by at breakneck speed and seek from them the direction of the road to take. 

 We desperately need those select few to shout at us as they govern us. Imagine wandering in a wilderness without partisan direction. Although we’re running out of trees, we need more legislation to kill the legislation on the books, so you can read the Congressional Record on Kindle each day. We also need larger clips and rapid weapons to preserve the masses, don’t you think?

Procreation with mates, as rabbits do, should be important to you. Imagine this wonderful earth without a population to fill it with God’s gifts, increasingly dumped in landfills. We need more exterminator engineers to zap the junk choking us, and we need more brainy types to develop things that give meaning to our lives such as links to improve the human touch.

Good luck with these other people. To fill my time, I’m sticking with me in the now. There are actually two types of time. One is God’s time when he tests us, and the other, which I prefer, was my time back in the good-old days. God says he tests man to strengthen him. Maybe you don’t want to be a Superman or ride camels through a needle’s eye.
