The Way Things Have Been

Apparently, mankind is subject to a number of the immutable conditions existing in the universe. As we have discussed, these include physical laws, like the law of gravity and the law of conservation of energy. And just as real, and nearly as predictable, are the laws of economics and the laws of human behavior. Although as individuals, we enjoy a wide degree of free will, still we do not seem to have the power to change these conditions.

Rather, we are subject to the universe and its laws. And we are also subject to each other, as individuals and also as groups of one kind or another. It is interesting to consider the history of mankind and how people have reacted to the realities of their existence. How have we interacted with our neighbors in the quest to maintain and perpetuate our own lives? How have we explained the meaning and purpose of our own existence?
