History Traps Again

A History Trap is a cycling and re-cycling of the same ideas and actions over and over. For example, the widely spread anticipation of the end of times, whether by Mayan calendar or  by Holy Writ, is a history trap that many people in our civilization fall into. In fact, there a bunch of them waiting for December 21, 2012 and the End-Of-A-Mayan-Era history trap to unfold with destruction.


Look at all the people now who say 2013 is going to be a mega-bummer, and a buzz-killer much worse than Buzz Killington. We flock to history traps like lemmings. It is in the blood.

Then there are always the Messiahs and Mahdis just waiting to pop out on stage, only things do not work out the way they are supposed to in a properly built History Trap.

The notion of Life Eternal as a static and unending choir practice in Heaven is another history trap, a boring image born of the repetition of the mundane.

Life Eternal will be tazer juice!
