Words from Dic(tionary)
Alloy: (n) a metal made by combining two or more metallic elements, usually to give greater strength or resistance to corrosion
Since I don’t know anything about metal, I will refrain from trying to come off as someone who just read a short Wikipedia explanation in order to espouse expertise.
Let me instead use the word “alloy” to suggest the melding of two great ideas–which, when smelted, create a bond which is difficult to break.
The first idea is “No one is better than anyone else.”
Every culture which has ignored this principle, or set it aside to temporarily gain the approval of the majority, has found itself flailing, devoid of purpose and alienating the very citizens who could have brought about progress.
The second idea we would like to bind into this mixture is, “Be fruitful and multiply; replenish the earth.”
Can you imagine what would happen if we set these two ideas into motion–to collide in a unity of purpose to become the backbone of our culture?
No one is better than anyone else–and because we hold that truth to be self-evident, we encourage you to be fruitful, expansive, creative and bring about the multiplication of new energy, instead of dividing us into little sects and groups, so that we can replenish the earth instead of robbing it of all of its resources.
The day we understand that equality and creativity are not conservative and liberal concepts, but rather, issues of survival, will be when we wake up and become intelligent enough to be worthy of the brain space we have been granted.
What a great alloy.
Even though each one is individually a strong concept, when united, they give us the sniff of humanity and the power of our convictions instead of rendering us … hapless, over-evolved gorillas.
