    DEFINING HISTORY

    DEFINING HISTORY *

    History is neither for us nor against us;
    It is a record of our accumulating past!
    That past which we humans had once made,
    And we can learn from our mistakes, it is often
    said!
    A wit had once put things together, saying; -
    'History dose not repeat itself, only historians
    repeat each other! ! '

    'Civilization is a movement and not a condition,
    a voyage, not a harbour, ' said Arnold Toynbee;
    'It has the right and the capacity to choose its destiny! '
    But many others did not seem to agree!
    The early Mayans said that History repeats itself in
    every 260 cyclic years,
    History is not cyclic said Tonybee, to allay our fears!
    The Greek Plato had felt that History was rather cynical;
    While Oswald Spengler the German, had similar
    views held!
    Spengler said that all things that grow, must mature,
    decay and decline;
    The Western Civilization was no exception of any
    kind!
    But Carrol Quigley, a scientist by training, could not
    accept any of the above views!
    And in his 'The Evolution of Civilisation ', he pays
    History its dues!
    Quigley attempts to create an acceptable synthesis,
    Which the critics praised with positive comments!
    Quigley advocated that systems come into being
    adapted to their environment;
    Which changes and evolves with a gradual motion,
    While he has laid down the seven stages of this
    evolution! **
    And he concludes by declaring with some flourish,
    That those civilizations which cannot adapt to such
    changes, -
    Will one day perish!

    (* I tried to pay my tribute to three of our greatest Historians, -
    being an old student of History. Spengler is unpopular in the
    West.
    ** Mixture, Gestation, Expansion, Age of Conflict, Universal Empire,
    Decay and Invasion.) read more »
