Beautiful thought - pure whimsy in the physical here and now.

    Might be some symbolic meaning here , just not sure what it is. I doubt that this would be much comfort to someone chained in one of Fidel's prisons.

    That's what the enslaved do: enslave the rest.
     -- E Archer, NYC

    If you are willing to enslave a man, the end result in that belief, played out full in time, would be that all mankind be enslaved. Which would include your future family. There is a simple deep meaning that I believe links the physical, spiritual and economic potential of man & civilization, in the present and future. I'd like to hear his thoughts on that.
