City Limits on the Vast Expanse

We never realize just how vast is the expanse of humanity, and of the world we've created. Our history books tell us stories of small men and small deeds, and make us think and feel that those events are the significant moments of history, the turning points and hinges of our lives.

The reality is that they are a bubble, a bit of foam riding high above and far removed from the currents and tides of the real story of humanity - which hinges on the small wonders and creations and grace of billions of people instinctively working together to weave the world.
