Heading for the Mount

Heading for the Mount

Have you noticed that there’s an amazing consistency about lists (of rules, best practices, myths, whatever)? In a classroom they occupy one sheet on an easel, or one screen on PowerPoint. In email they are usually seen on one screen or on an attachment that’s one page, viewed without scrolling.

I’m suggesting that our ideation and teaching is delimited by a preconditioned size protocol. We don’t want to flip a sheet, or cause people to scroll or jump around.

Is it a coincidence that our entire list of advice is confined in this way? I think not.

What if God wrote smaller or allowed for a third tablet? Might there be:

Thou shalt not be polarized.

Thou shalt assist and respect those less fortunate.

Thou shalt not consume kale.

The lifespan of dogs shalt be 80 years.

Thou shalt not talk to a movie screen in public.

Of course, I don’t know for sure, but Moses might have ditched a tablet he didn’t care for or simply couldn’t carry four and forgot where he had left them.

We know where Mount Sinai is. Perhaps some excavation might lead to a better life.
