Our Work May Vanish, Bui Our Spirit Lives On You can Cccl the cold winds oul of empty space blow down the back of your neck—if you caro for sticli an experience—by taking ;i look at an article- written for the current Scientific American by Dr. Thornwcll Jacobs, president of Oglclhorpe University. Dr. Jacobs suggests that we ought to' builtl n crypt of stainless steel niul (J • * fill • it,-' with .. records,.-working models,, , pictures,-'and 'descriptions., of modern American civilization. Theii, lie says, we should seal it and leave it to be opened in the year 8113 A. I)., so that remote posterity can have an idea of what sort of people its ancestors were and how they lived. There is nothing especially creepy about that, of course. But Dr. Jacobs goes on to add that by 8113 it is more than probable that every other record of the civilization of 1!)3U Will have vanished from the earth. Our great steel and stone btitldings, our vast engineering works, our libraries, and our archives—all will have disappeared. \ If people remember thai t North. America was populated in 1030'they will remember it hazily, as we remember that someone was living where Persia now is 6,000 years ago. ':- \ ' },') It takes a scientist to piit things like that. The rest of us go aboul; our day-to-day business witli>uW|hmk| jj ing of the distant future 'ttk'4\}-/or?* if we do think of it, we assume that what we arc doing today is being done for all time—that there isi-rt perinan-j once to the society we live in which will outlast change. We may be right, but the- odds aroi cgainsl it. When the scientist steps out of the procession and takes a long view, he can see that change is the,'one , unfailing law. ' • - • The best things and the worst things we do" today will inevitably be forgotten. The same obscurity.- will ;' cover our triumphs and defeats. Our follies and our virtues will finally drop cut of sight. • ' From tho distance of 6,000 years Woodrow Wilson and Bruno Hauptmann will be exactly alike ,in that. both will be completely invisible! ' Does all this, then,, mean that it dcesn't make much 'difference what we do with ourselves and with our civilian oblivion js awuiliiig all our v achievements? ... v '. . . Not nt ail. Those hsr/.y, far-nlT people of 8113 A. J). may not know one thing about us, but whiil they fire uiul how they Ii\'« will be shaped nnd melded by whiil wo tliinlt and do. For I'.lthtnigh what people niiilce and do may dissolve in Ihu ucid of time, the spirit am! the ink'Hitfc-ncc with which they make iiiul do things hcconie part of the undying herilnge of Ihe rate. Thc man who goes to the .scall'ol:! fov justice and freedom may bu forgotten; the sesilo of value's which led him to thc scaft'old becomes absorbed and transmuted to the farthest generations.
