We don’t look to past wisdom to get the answers to the deep questions: Why are we here? What is the purpose of life? How do we define what is true, what is good, and what is beautiful? We are people who are always looking for what is new. The new is where we are absorbed; it is what grabs our attention. We don’t want to learn what is old. We’re hoping that around the corner something new is going to give our lives meaning that it lacks today, when in reality, the deepest truths of life are already available to us.
