Mere Humanity: On Construction and Human Pride

Image

People always want to create – whether it’s structures, art, stories and ideas. Civilization has shown construction coinciding with power; that is, kings, emperors and rulers alike drove their followers and subordinates to set up towers walls, tombs and much more gargantuan edifices. Art, Music, Literature and Philosophy are perfect media to construct ideas. If you look at Nature, you will witness what is and what had become. Technology, on the other hand, is what had become because of human manipulation. The purpose of all these industrialization and techno-advancement is for convenience and communication. And from what humanity has achieved, technology is the closest thing we have to a Tower of Babel. However it will only be so if these tools and media become our gods and be venerated within our existence.
