"If you could forget mortality...You could really believe that time is circular, and not linear and progressive as our culture is bent on proving. Seen in geological perspective, we are fossils in the making, to be buried and eventually exposed again for the puzzlement of creatures of later eras." - "Crossing to Safety" by Wallace Stegner
