Where Are They Now?

"More than [6,400 million] human beings inhabit this Earth of ours:  
every day . . . 100,000 ['s] of them die and a similar number is 
born.  This colossal drama has gone on for tens of thousands of 
years: perhaps for hundreds of thousands, of which history retains 
no record.   The endless procession of humanity has come out of the 
unknown, crossed the lighted stage of human life and disappeared 
again into the unknown. . . .

Each one of these passing millions was a human being with loves and 
fears, hopes and dreams like our own.  To what goal and what purpose 
is all this?  What has become of this vast procession which has 
disappeared into the past:  where are they now?  They have 
disappeared from the eyes of their successors as though they had 
never been..... [And we in turn] for a few short years try to weave 
our own dreams into realities on the same spinning orb.  And what 
strange dreams men have!  They know they, too, will die...."   

Raynor  C. Johnson in "The Imprisoned Spendour" (1953).
