The philosopher’s prediction may not have been accurate, but how could he have predicted over tourism?

Savages/Αγριοι

SAVAGES COMIC2

The old man sat on his chair with a look of confusion and sadness worn on his face.

“What’s is it?” I asked

“I had a crazy dream last night. I’ll never forget it.”

“Alright. So what? I can tell you a million crazy dreams that I’ve had. Don’t let whatever you saw bother you too much.” I said to the old man/ I was worried that the old man was going to give himself a stroke.

“Let me tell you about the dream. I bet you’ve never seen or heard of this kind of dream before in your life!”

The old man proceeded to tell me his dream with great enthusiasm.

“It took place in Egypt in one of the pyramids. A group of archaeologists had just uncovered a tomb belonging to a pharaoh from four thousand years ago. When they opened the tomb the mummy opened his eyes. The archaeologists were shocked. The mummy slowly sat up in his grave and his bandages began to fall off.  He asked for a translator. In the next scene he was looking out at the landscape of the world. Looking at all of the chaos. Then the pharaoh angrily exclaimed ‘savages, those people are savages!”

I looked at the old man with a look of disbelief.

” You’re kidding me now?”

“Why would I kid?” said the old man with an air of annoyance.

“He was so angry. “Savages” said the Pharaoh!”

I didn’t know what else to tell the old man. But, that he was right I had never heard of such a dream before.

Later that week I came across an article about a four thousand year old tomb of a pharaoh that had been uncovered. Chills poured down my body. The old man knew nothing of Egyptology how could he have guessed the date correctly?

I sometimes wonder about our ancestors-all of our ancestors. What do they think of us modern humans? They cannot be pleased with what we have done to the planet and how we treat each other.

This is a  message from the beyond that they are horrified by what they are seeing on this earth.
