An idle thought

Some would say intelligent thought unlocks the world for our purview. Some would have you believe that the ability to abstract and comprehend is what separates us from savage beasts, that it is what makes us civilized. I say: balderdash. Those who see, will be disillusioned. Those who hear, fall silent. Those who perceive, falter. Let it be said that man, alike beast, is a fool who stumbles in the dark. Let it be said that even the stars that guide our dreams eventually fade away. Let it be known that man mustn’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t, but does, has and will.
