THE CROSS ROADS OF DESTINY
Little children, their minds filled with wonder soon start trying to find out the truth about the strange and intriguing world in which they find themselves. They regularly consult the giants of this land, whom they regard as the established Gods. They constantly bombard them with questions and get all sorts of weird answers, which serves only to increase their puzzlement. Christmas comes around and that huge and benevolent old gentleman with thick red coat and bushy white beard stealthily delivers presents of the child’s choice in the dead of the night. Amongst the fascinating toys, one inevitably finds a large book often called the Golden Treasure Book. This book is filled with pictures of dinosaurs, ancient cities and stars and planets. At least in this book the child must find out all that he wishes to know.
Twenty years later our little child is now himself an established God with little children of his own who ask the same eternal questions. Unfortunately, he has learned very little in all this time and the answers which he gives his children are the same inadequate ones which he received himself.
This is the lot of the average man, he never learns the real and basic truths of life, and after he reaches maturity he usually ceases trying. The dirty devices of adult humanity are by now much more intriguing to his mind.
