and alternately co-making your Civilisation,
by the hour,
the thousand years,
the ten-thousand-years –
and beyond –
is not “unconditional”, not a “given” nor a “guaranteed Right” –
any more than Forgiveness is.-
They each depend upon your – and your civilisation – doing more “good” and less “harm”, than previously.
Only as long as you maintain each sustain-worthy-ing step forward –
can your sustainworrthiness become and remain “cumulative”.
