Hard to make sense

If one of your late ancestors were to come back from the dead and join you for dinner, what things about your family would this person find the most shocking?

A lot has changed since the time of my ancestors. The world is moving at the speed of lightening. Today people are flying to the moon and diving to the bottom of the seas and oceans; exploring never reached areas of the world and making hitherto unimaginable inventions and discoveries.

If one of my late ancestors were to come back from the dead and join us for dinner, he would be shocked by many of the marvels of our times. We all live in one big house with different rooms. That was not the case in their time. Men’s houses were apart from those of their wives and children.

The lighting system we have today is not what they had in their day. They ate with bare fingers. We eat with cutlery nowadays; listen to radio and watch television and even browse the internet.

In short, it would be hard to make sense of what they will see.

  1. Even today people don’t realize what they have. If you have just a simple apartment with plumbing, even just an old car that runs, kitchen appliances and food for 3 meals a day you are living better than 75% of the people in this planet.
