Fleeting doesn't sound much larger than forever. Hmmm.

There is some element of mankind that has us fighting obscurity.  I actually think it's part of our purpose of life. We strive to move forward, learn new things, break previous barriers, on way to contributing to the great collective unconsciousness that makes evolutionary progress for all.

Hi Paul,
I need to ponder this one a little more.
My initial thought is that "glory" has different levels. I've had what I consider a relatively blessed life in that I've enjoyed many glorified moments of success (personally and professionally) and, yet, to the world I am very obscure on every level. All of it is for eternity in my mind.

I think that glory is forever as well, I guess it just depends on how you look at things, haha.
