The Ongoing History of Civilizational Change

When pre-civilizations become too small for their liveliness, they give way to civilizations. When civilizations become too pleased with their greatness, they give way to anti-civilizations. When anti-civilizations become too exhausted with their wickedness, they give way to pseudo-civilizations. When pseudo-civilizations become too saturated with their smugness, they give way to bygone civilizations. And since history does not repeat itself, God only knows what happens next.

Which god only knows what happens next? Which religion’s god? Perhaps there will be a day when there will be a civilizational change that includes people no believing in gods.
