Thousands of years ago, there was a town called Babel. The citizens of this magnificent town all had one desire. They wanted to be closer to their maker. So they decided to build a huge and tall tower to allow them to reach up closer to him. Now, this tower remains small in comparison to today’s modern constructions. Nevertheless, this maker of theirs was rather jealous at the time. He held numerous secrets and wanted to keep things to himself. So as to prevent these curious and well-meaning folks from reaching out to him, he decided to knock down these walls which, as history seems to prove, he did.
And so the years flew by. They seem to fly past a lot quicker these days with all these modern technologies around. And it seems as though this maker has joined the party. He is now officially available to all, although it must be said that no-one, not even the COC or the Pope, has a direct line to him. That being said, he has allowed the creation of numerous miraculous devices to help people understand each other better. And in so doing, it is hoped that through these outreach programs if you will; folks will come closer to him.
As it turns out, the reaching out circle extends to all commercial entities as well. The use of translation devices for conferences is now nothing new for business. It is indeed business as usual. They talk about the world growing smaller and everyone living in a global village. It certainly seems the case, or at least it feels that way at times, because we are all able to understand each other a lot better than those Babel folks could.
