That's It

A New View


In the face of this new evidence

we accept that we will not change.

Our attributes are not capable

of using the knowledge

we have acquired. So, that's



We have the desire to be happy

and live as providers for everyone,

but it is not in our minds to bring that

into the world. That's it.


The earth will crumble around us,

eventually catch fire and destroy all

that we once took from it. Humanity

will end as mountains crumble,

seas rise, or flames take us. Then,

that will be it.
