There are times when I truly dislike the world in which we live. I sometimes feel that the more we evolve the less civilized we become. There is no doubt that advances in science and technology have made the world a better place. There is no doubt that those advances have made our lives easier and have reduced suffering. But what about our humanity?
Among the many places I have lived over the past few years, my favorite was a 150-year-old Victorian house. Living in a historical house was an eye-opening experience. It was a glimpse into the lifestyles of people now long gone.
