Moment of Zen

So, I was reading this story about the discovery of a 3000 year-old shard that contains Hebrew text. I called this a moment of zen because I don't have a fully developed thought, but just wanted to ponder how many years 3000 years is. Think about how hard it is to understand the context of words written on a shard. Think about two thousand year old texts from the Dead Sea scrolls.

Anyway, there you are. Food for thought.

It interests me to think that as old as the original Old Testament is to us. This shard was half that old to the authors of the Old Testament.
