and it showed up everywhere.
In the sun, and the water,
and the falling leaves,

Universal patterns inform creative symbols
and the symbolizing mind of the creator.

The ancient Greeks called such patterns archetypes.
Archetypes or not, history is always there,
but ahead of it there is a future
not determined by anyone or anything,

but contingent on the products of our creation. 
It is we who make the future,
and our imagination of the future
affects who we are and what we do now.

— Frank Barron
