The ouroboros

Stated in Wikipedia, is that ouroboros “is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.“ It says the ouroboros is “often taken to symbolize introspection, the eternal return or cyclicality, especially in the sense of something constantly re-creating itself. It also represents the infinite cycle of nature's endless creation and destruction, life, and death.”

We may think of life as enduring, and picture it, for example, by the corn, going to the ground to be seed, and even by corn being harvested, to become seed. There is no improvement, though, immanent in this enduring cycle. To say the corn develops, in light of an evolution theory, is a bit crazy. Animals, being somewhat more oriented, also make offspring. The dog, we know, is the one returning to its faeces. The dog is oriented by the smell of it. And also some other animals, aI believe, are oriented by the smell of faeces, sensing danger. Offspring, as new life, beasts have no notion of. Human beings literally make offspring. And to a mother and to a father, to enjoy their sons and daughters alive is continual joy and a matter of learning. The snake eating itself in the tail is a silly symbol. It shows nothing.

By the end of life human beings will be justified by their creative work. Great or small as it is, God given, their creative efforts show their love.
