Today’s Oracle takes us to the Sagittarius weekly for April 16, 1999.
I’ve been in the mood to browse sci-fi these days, and I happened upon the novel 2001 by Arthur C. Clarke. In it, he accounts for the turn of ape-man into modern humanity to be the result of alien intervention millions of year ago, teaching the our predecessors one simple skill — how to use a sharp rock to hunt and kill. And the power to hunt and kill made mankind dominant, and prone to laziness and excess. Whether or not outside visitors had anything to do with this advent, it seems clear that the use of violent force (for good or ill) made humans what they became, and makes us what we still are today millions of years later. Please tell us how you’ve mastered this particular struggle, and if you have any hope at all for the rest of us.
The Daily Oracle offers a horoscope selected randomly by our Intelligent Archive Oracle program, unique to Planet Waves. It’s also a database of my horoscopes going back to the late 1990s. You can use the Intelligent Archive Oracle to answer questions and give you ideas for how to handle problems and situations you cannot see through.
