Talking with Milenials

I had to talk to a group of milenials about the topic of critical thinking. Many of the references of my daily life are unknown. Lou Costello was not a familiar name. In a way it makes all of us more human. Pretty much unless you are
a president ultimately you are forgotten. There are rare artistic exceptions but that is it.

For 99 percent of us outside a geniologic interest by our descendants we are forgotten in time. Our thoughts and goals are just lost in the March of time. In a way it makes me feel better about life in general. Even the high and the mighty are ultimately leveled by time.

This is something to think about as we age and make peace with the larger world.

The gigantic statues of the mighty and famous last but a few generations-
"And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains: round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare,
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I, too, immediately thought of Ozymandias.
