Two thousand years ago, the Greek philosopher Heraclitus said that “history is a child building a sand castle by the sea.” Most people today agree. The story of man, they say, is little more than an endless cycle of birth and death, building and destroying, evolution and revolution. No clear beginning, no present purpose, no clear end.
