In lieu of action, today brings spontaneous and random typing...this was the most interesting of my many brief spurts of thought:
In the end they will tally the winners and losers. Each column will stretch beyond what anyone thought was distance. One will count, judging quietly and marking the score. One will know the final tally. Centuries from now, when all calculations are made, the list will be published. Then all will understand how each individual measures up. Those left will know of those before, and those yet to come will set themselves against this universal benchmark. Will those that have passed see where they had stood? Will it alter the memory of those still living? The losers will have died unaware that they are so. The winners, too, will remain deceased.
