Insignificance (July)

65,000 years now (July 2017), it’s said, people have lived on the continent their languages had other names for than Australia. Not as long as Africa, but a figure science hands down to establish the insignificance of 200. What are our average 65 years against the power of 1000? Imagination goes crazy or despairs or resigns itself never properly to imagine 65,000 years of Australia. If we do more than simply work to live, we turn our 65 years into stories. We discover through play. We establish meaning. We make laws and manage them, all 65,000 years of insignificant us.
