The growth of power and money comes from a dark source. It sheds darkness on the world. Peoples souls darken. They lose their light. Technology emits light but it isn’t the light needed. It still disconnects the spirit from the larger world. The disconnect from the natural world has been a slow process. People become lost to a world of shadows. Where shadows are the only comfort.
