The Ends of the Earth
The Ends of the Earth by JC Collins – Philosophy of Metrics
There are secret pathways upon the Earth.
Child, look to the North and you will see the place from which we have entered and may one day leave again.
Alone these paths must be walked and whoever does so shall overcome.
To the East there is another path which runs through all the doorways which are still closed to you.
On September 30, 1791, just two months before his death, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart premiered his great mystery play The Magic Flute in Vienna. It was the culmination of a life’s work and represented one of the most allegorical examples of the “path of toil that unto wisdom leadeth”.
Mozart attempted to capture the great secret of life and what it is. Whether he was successful or not will be determined by the ultimate end of mankind and the Earth within which he learns.
What is life?
This is a question which engenders much; why, when, what, who, and where, which encompasses all aspects of life itself, from mineral, plant and animal. Perceived life for a human being is composed of the short span of physical time from birth to the death of the animal part.
The obsession with the physical part of life forces mankind into a state of animalistic existence which lives for itself and discards reason and spiritual wisdom. The animal man scavenges within the dome of unconscious matter as the musical notes of Mozart reverberate throughout the conscious expanse of all that is possible.
Most sense that life is more than the root existence which we have been conditioned to accept and propagate through the externalization of spiritual ignorance. The common herd of the unthinking and disorganized masses have falsely accepted that the well-being of man is equal to the well-being of the animal part.
