I have often pondered the question as to whether or not time equals progress as it relates to human civilization and the quality of existence for those participating in civilization. For example, would a sample of the American population experience a higher quality of existence (mental, physical, spiritual) in Ancient Greece relative to their current experience here and now in the United States? One could write a thousand page thesis on this topic, but this is just a muse and I offer my opinion (must have a sense of humor)through a few broad categories and images.
