Back to A Day Down a Goldmine

EXTRACT SEVEN: THE MESSAGE WE SHOULD TAKE

 

GUIDE:

How do we eradicate an ancient influence whose false brilliance Challenges the Sun?

Is it to be with us forever - into the future?

We might consider what our contribution will be to that future which will, in time, become the Past - the Next Past.

(optional) 'why this is the only thread on which our dear planet is suspended in space

'Or do you want to remain forever in the dark, down this mine, grovelling for gold -

perpetuating the greatest ever confidence Trick to played ON the human race BY the human race?

....

 

GUIDE:

Hold it, hold it - Mission Control is calling. I think an Oracle is about to descend upon us - 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1

Primitive attitudes projected into our times - no matter what respect permanence has given them - no matter what permanence respect has given them... MUST BE QUESTIONED

 

GUIDE:

GUIDE and ASSISTANT:

Yep.
