Marx was troubled by the question of why ancient Greek art retained an 'eternal charm', even though the social conditions which produced it had long passed; but how do we know that it will remain 'eternally' charming, since history has not yet ended? Let us imagine that by dint of some deft archaeological research we discovered a great deal more about what ancient Greek tragedy actually meant to its original audiences, recognized that these concerns were utterly remote from our own, and began to read the plays again in the light of this deepened knowledge. One result might be that we stopped enjoying them. We might come to see that we had enjoyed them previously because we were unwittingly reading them in the light of our own preoccupations; once this became less possible, the drama might cease to speak at all significantly to us. The fact that we always interpret literary works to some extent in the light of our own concerns - indeed that in one sense of 'our own concerns' we are incapable of doing anything else - might be one reason why certain works of literature seem to retain their value across the centuries. It may be, of course, that we still share many preoccupations with the work itself; but it may also be that people have not actually been valuing the 'same' work at all, even though they may think they have. 'Our' Homer is not identical with the Homer of the Middle Ages, nor 'our' Shakespeare with that of his contemporaries; it is rather that different historical periods have constructed a 'different' Homer and Shakespeare for their own purposes, and found in these texts elements to value or devalue, though not necessarily the same ones. All literary works, in other words, are 'rewritten', if only unconsciously, by the societies which read them; indeed there is no reading of a work which is not also a 're-writing'. No work, and no current evaluation of it, can simply be extended to new groups of people without being changed, perhaps almost unrecognizably, in the process; and this is one reason why what counts as literature is a notably unstable affair.

In 125 years from now, who will be around to say whether you liked tomato soup or Gandhi? Who will share stories of your childhood, first love, dislikes, and interests? Who will tell the world of your adventures and the places you've traveled if there are no pictures or receipts to prove it? And who will be around to accurately translate the real meaning of any words or artwork you left behind? And who will be around to prove they are actually yours? And if your friends or enemies left anything behind about you, would their words be good or bad, and how much of it would really be true? What if you were a very good person but had many enemies? And what if you were an influential person with a big following, and your words and image become one of the most bankable industries in the world? If you can control the information and words of that person after they die, you can control their followers almost forever. If you can change the outcomes of wars, time frames or locations of pivotal events, or the succession of leaders of any 'dynasty', you can change a country's position of power or debts to another nation in the future. You can build mythical entities or hide vital information anytime. There will be nobody around to verify that Jesus had blue eyes or if Charlie Chaplin ever rode a donkey. And even if one person died with a book on his story, there will be five or hundreds to write their version of 'his story' to cover up his truths. If you wrote your life story before you died, how many enemies will also write books about you, which later will be multiplied to another 500 additional titles over time? One man's truths do not stand a chance to outlive him in a land of a billion people, especially if those with power and influence do not like him, and can benefit by turning his words around into lies to serve their corrupt causes. What if your history was erased and rewritten like those of many historical icons of the past? Who is around today to say what color Jesus or Mohammed's hair really looked like, or how they spent their time? Remember, Jesus never wrote the Bible, but over thirty or forty people claiming to know somebody who knew him personally did. Who are these people? How do we not know their names? If God wanted them to be writing his messages, he would have chosen them instead of Jesus. Did any of his 'close friends' stand up for Jesus when he was being crucified? No. They did not stand up for what was right because they found their lives to be more precious than the truth. So why would you listen to what they claim Jesus said? Any man who does not stand up for his conscience is not favored by God. And this is the true meaning of Jesus dying for our sins. He died because nobody stood up for him. Three hundred years after you die, and your children and grandchildren die too, how will people know that you died a Baahist and not a Christian? How much truth is preserved in the histories of our dead heroes, leaders, prophets, and kings? And who has translated, decoded, researched, and re-written their histories? Who are these interpreters and translators, and what are their beliefs, dislikes, biases, background, gains, motives, and so forth? So if all human witnesses to major events disappear every 125 years, who or what is truly around to say what happened to the world 125, 000 years ago, or what God really said to who? Those manipulating truths to their advantage know there isn't a soul around to say otherwise. Yet there are sheep to manage. Knowing this, since he created the minds and hearts of men, the Creator preserved truths in our hearts so that we would naturally know right from wrong. He knew the details of important events would be tampered with, so he stored his most important concerns in our hearts - to be good to yourself and others, to know the difference between right and wrong, to seek truth always, and to never neglect your conscience until you die.
