Failure to Create:

Wisdom from . . .


. . . . Man produces little that is lasting—truly lasting. It's understandable. Fear, conformity, immorality; these are heavy burdens. Great drainers of creative energy. And when we are drained of creative energy we do not create. We procreate; we do not create.

The human race has a gift . . . that sets it above all the other creatures that abound upon this planet: the gift of thought, of reasoning, of understanding. The highly-developed brain. But the human race has ceased to develop. It struggles for petty comfort and false security; there is no time for thought. Soon there will be no time for reasoning, and Man will lose sight of the truth.

  — “The Sixth Finger,” written by Ellis St. Joseph and Joseph Stefano, The Outer Limits, broadcast 14 October 1963
