Closing Words: “Extinguishing the Chalice”
We extinguish this flame, a mere wisp of matter in process, almost as insubstantial as the thought of it.
Yet our civilization has harnessed the power of such a flame to drive and shape a new world.
So may it be with the power of our thoughts, that in truth and love they may drive and shape a new world.
