Alright, time for a philosophical question for everyone. Most of you are familiar with the Greek myth of Pandora's
Box. It was said to contain the greatest of evils. Pandora could not
resist and opened it out of curiosity, spreading all kinds of evil, malice, and disease in the world, but hope remained within the
box and remained closed. But why did it remain? Why would hope be among
the other evil things? In some versions of the story, the box was later
reopened and hope was released. Some say this hope was false hope, it
was the greatest evil of all since it prolonged Man's torture. What do
you think? What do you believe? I think that hope remained in the box
because it was a good hope when it remained sealed, and if it was
released, it would become an evil thing. I believe Hope is within
mankind, and in essence, each human is a Pandora's box. We choose which
evils we let out in the world.
