Of origins and ends

“As a [person’s] desire is, so is his destiny. For as his desire is, so is his will; as his will is, so is his deed; and as his deed is, so are its consequences, good or bad.” So say the Upanishads. And Descartes came along a lot later to say again, “I think, therefore I am,” and now for the next millennium or so written records will pay attention to this truism. So much of the charm of human history is in our forgetting and rediscovering ourselves and our philosophies and their inspirations. Hide and seek. Ends and origins.
