200,000 years, and more to come.

History works through cause and effect -
nothing happens out of step.
When you think about it, we're all
small players in a grand scheme -
simple cogs in an elegant machine.
This is humanity;
this is the human dream:
we are the light playing
on time's e'erflowing stream.

We dazzle the water,
we increase the load;
the future will eat us
and history will show.
And history will show
everything about us -
even the unacknowledged realities
that surround us.
