Man discovers fire for second time.

Postby pilgrim-seeker_tom » Tue Apr 18, 2017 10:54 am

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin


Seems man has mastered the winds ... the waves ... the tides ... now all sources of renewable energy.

Seems man has discovered new laws of gravity ... gravitational waves.

Maybe then ... for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire ... is just around the corner.

Imagination is more important than knowledge according to Einstein. :D

Can something be discovered twice? though I think you're being metaphorical here... reinventing fire is like reinventing the wheel.. impossible, or simply put.. a lie.
