Let me be around. To find out .
We’ve come a long way, my fellow humanoids. In 300,00 years.
That’s the age of the oldest fossils of homo sapiens found in Morocco.
Read it in a story in the New York
Times. Complete with a front page photo of a 300,000-year-old human jawbone. Wow! I’m fascinated. Just thinking about all this. Wondering. Curiously. What it must have been like. Roaming
our planet. When there was no clue. Of what we were to become. Apparently, evolution has brought us this far. But
we still have a long way to go. Before becoming truly intelligent beings. Wondering. Wondering If it will happen in another 300,000
years. Please. Please. Allow me to be an everlasting spirit. So that I'm still around. To find
I’d love to flit back and forth. To a million years in the
future. And to a million years in the past. To satisfy my curiosity. Maybe the
original creator. Could do all that. Someone who can do any and everything. If
he’s still around. I want to submit my request. To be granted the ability. For only a few
days. To experience what conditions were like. On planet Earth one million
years ago. And what it’s going to be like one million years from now. I suspect
that the future will be far more scary than the past. Makes me wonder. If I’ll
still want to live forever. Could it be that nothingness will be better than life?
I wonder. If the creator has undergone a significant
personality change in the past million years. That’s an awfully long time to
remain static. Without an attitudinal upgrade. If I lived for a
million years. I’d have learned a lot. From my many, many mistakes. I’d be a better and more understanding guy.
Maybe even a god. I suppose it took time to qualify as a really competent god. Yes. Yes. Give me a million years. And I would learn to be, if not god,
his trusted and competent assistant. I’m sure of it. God can rest assured. I have no plan for a heavenly
palace coup. But I am amused. Merely
thinking about it. I place no limits on my fantasies. --Jim
