Post Meditationem Omne Animal...

A note on the post Meditation 1/27/2013

The second but last paragraph:
That is why there are always mountains to climb and rivers to cross: intelligent life is myriad in its detail. In its desire for expression, it goes through every possibility, including those we call evil, bad, ugly.
This seems to imply something in moral philosophy. It seems to say that if evil is always with mankind, it is because evil is a choice that has a certain probability of occurring, even though it is not part of the nature of mankind.
Evil comes from having too many choices and millenia of time to choose in.
Just as there are benign periods of beauty, so also are there times of ugliness; there are times of peace, and times for war.

There is a time for everything under the sun, and everything possible under the sun.
Therefore, be firm in virtue, for the probability of Misery Comin' Around is greater than zero.
