Recently, I was given a book. It is an old book and its name is all but worn away.
The first several hundred pages are written on old and worn parchment, but as I scan the pages, I notice the pages change in quality and in age.
Now that I’ve scanned and have a “feel” for this book of mysteries, I now open the book to two random pages. The print is surprisingly small, but in some unknown manner, each line I read seems to enlarge as if by some unseen magnifying glass. Reading just one page seems to take forever.
After reading a mere few pages and noticing the dramatic changes in the heavens, I began to notice the pattern of the mysterious book which is written without demarcation.
The pattern, now clear to me is that each page starts a new day in history. The division between the two pages is mid-day, but not as man measures time. At the end of the second page is the close of each day.
The book, while larger than any text-book, and compressed with what seems to be an insurmountable amount of information tells of the history of a planet from its conception, to its current moment. The book is a summary of each event that produced significant change in its history.
This book, like any book has a beginning and a middle, but like any story of life, it is incomplete – the end cannot be written while the subject continues to unfold…
… just as each of us unfold each day, two pages at a time.
