Interesting words - Annie Dillard
echsdoc
"An idea of Buckminster Fuller's was roughly to this effect: the purpose of people on earth is to counteract the tide of entropy described in the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Physical things are falling apart at a terrific rate; people, on the other hand, put things together. People build bridges and cities and roads; they write music and novels and constitutions; they have ideas. That is why people are here; the universe as it were NEEDS somebody or something to keep it from falling apart."
Annie Dillard
