In the next 300 years, you will be no more, no one in the world will be living. In the year 2317, scholars will be reading our history; quoting pioneers who made developments and leaders who made an impact in the world.
In the next 300 years, we will all lie silent in our graves. Regardless of our current status, of what position we hold, we will all be equal, summed up with a new title, ‘The Deceased.’
It is funny that your house, your car, your fame, your pride will be no more. Your kids, your parents, your friends, your mentors and anyone you know will be dead like you. The same way we read 1717 history is the same way people in 2317 we read our history.
There’s little information on the internet about the 1700s, this is because information at that time was not documented. In 2317, things will be different, people will reference our current information in their scholarly articles. People will now have access to our information as we fill it on the internet.
The people of that time will be able to track our history since we first interacted with the internet. What will you have in-store for future researchers and curious minds? Will it be your funny memes or abusive political posts? Will your trendy fashion and wealth make meaning to humanity, then?
Inasmuch as we strive for a better life; wealth, holidays and fun we should ask ourselves what meaning we make to humanity. As we, in our greed oppress others for personal gain we should question ourselves, then what? It is funny that you will merely last a century here and then you will forget all you amassed.
What about religion? Are you still waiting for “God’s time” or “Your time?” Has the world blinded you into new age religion that there is no life after death? That if Jesus has never shown up for all that time, He never will? Do you feel that Christianity is all made up and is just a human institution?
Do you feel that you need more reason and logic than faith to understand things? King Solomon in his vast wisdom could not figure out the supernatural. In his wealth, he saw no meaning of it all and he stamped it, ‘A chasing after the wind.’ Why is it in your little knowledge and wealth you boast of greatness and intellect?
Life has a way of humbling everyone because in 2317 all sitting presidents and all peasants will be rotting in their graves. This is a full proof that everything is vanity. A new generation will be living in my inherited land and they will not know me lest I make meaning and great impact of my life. We remember great pioneers because of what contribution they made to humanity, it is sad that most of them had nothing, talk of dying empty.
The question remains, what meaning are you making with your life? Are you dying empty?
