Relevantly Insignificant

The individual is insignificant to the masses; the masses are insignificant to the individual. Generations have come and gone before us and we will come and go before future generations. We do not know the past as they did and likewise, the future will not know us as we do. Multitudes of statistics are given as an insight to the reality that we are insignificant to each other even as we co-exist together. We literally live atop previous civilizations only to be lived upon by progressing civilizations. Annie Dillard, author of The Wreck of Time, surmises that we are not extraordinary but merely ordinary and that the cycle of life and death on this earth is never-ending.
