History as a Judge

I was researching and enjoying the beauty of Anglo Saxon metrical charms earlier and it got me wondering.  What will future generations think of what our current era has left behind?  After all, I see the Anglo Saxon material and I think it contributes a great deal to how we, as a species, have evolved intellectually. It’s a part of human history and says a great deal about our psychology. It also contributes to the sociological picture of the time period in which it was written. This led me to ask, what do Justin Beiber’s memoirs say to someone a thousand years from now? Two thousand?  Will future generations look back and say Lady Gaga contributed a great deal to human civilization as we know it? In one hundred or two hundred years will our modern magickal gurus like Lon Milo Duquette, Donald Tyson and yes, even Konstantinos be revered in the same way modern magicians revere Aleister Crowley or John Dee?  What will history of say of them or will they even have a place in the historical record? (Provided man doesn’t destroy himself or our species isn’t annihilated by natural means.)

It’s an interesting thing to ponder. It makes me look at those things I enjoy doing or those things I hold sacred in my every day life and ask, “What does this contribute to society and the human race as a whole?”
