men are made to
solve short term problems
and because they are
coming soon and on a human
scale, they can be solved.
if it wasn't so, men would
start asking themselves to solve a problem
that starts with death:
what shall i do there to
live longer: they can be no sciences
for help, it is needed a sort of
reshaped mind: one
should kill time, stop
thinking in terms of weeks:we
are always somewhere until death
between monday and sunday.

Humankind is biologically meant to cycle through quickly, and in the scheme of time we do, no more that a fleeting, procreating life, then gone. Short term or long, we fail and fail again to solve problems. Ultimately, whatever the cosmos is or does will absorb the detritus that was us.

Still, we have will, and can and do solve problems, but death, that still comes despite all. Maybe Trump can make a deal with Death, I'm pretty sure I can't.
