The World Will Survive

Humans often think too much. When I write this, I mean that humans often draws too many conclusions of very little evidence. They figure out a lot of thing based on too little facts. A common trait with humans is that they always want to know what the future will look like, and many humans thus take a little evidence and draws a lot of conclusions about the future from that evidence.

Today is the last day of an epoch in the old Maya calendar. This epoch has gone on for many thousands of years. Some humans have understood this to be a prediction of the end of the world. In truth, this epoch is just followed by another, equally long epoch. According to one Maya "ajkij", it is even wrong to say that this long epoch is ending today, the right day is a few years from now.

I wish humans would be a little less concerned about the future, and certainly about the possible future end of the world. They could learn something from us dogs. We live in the present, thus we enjoy each day to its fullest potential. A little planning is good, but it is not wise to be so preoccupied with what might happen tomorrow that you forget to enjoy the good things that happen today.
