Houses and humans [Thursday, May. 05, 2005, 12:41 pm]
Has anyone ever noticed how much houses resemble human bodies? No, not in appearance, but in design. Think about it - houses have strong, sturdy structures that support it, but are hidden from the eye - wood, steel, stone, whatever it is that keeps it up. And humans have strong, sturdy bones, which we can't see, but which keep us erect and supported.
Houses have a plumbing system that brings water to almost any room, and also remove the waste. In a similar fashion, humans have blood and urinary systems which pump fluids around and make sure the waste is excreted.
Houses have siding, roofing, tiles, and windows, to make sure the outer elements don't damage what's inside. In the same way, people have skin, hair, fingernails, etc.
Houses also have "organs," which are large and cumbersome, but have specific jobs to perform. Washing clothes and dishes, cooking food, keeping food cold, heating the house, etc. And like the human body, these organs often deteriorate over time.
Lastly, houses have an electrical system, supplying electricity to every part of the body. This gives energy for lights, electronics such as "organs," and other necessary functions of the house. Without this "nervous system," nothing in the house (or body) would work.
And over the course of history, we've designed all these things for our houses, thinking we were so smart. We're not smart - we're just getting better at making our own versions of the original Creation.
"So here's your options: Door #1: You go to prison for a very long time. Door #2: We are going to get back the Declaration. You help us find it, and...you still go to prison for a very long time, but you feel better inside."
