Quote: "History will only repeat itself as long as you commemorate it"

I've made a theory that the commemoration of history makes it repeat itself by nature. For example how we commemorate the first or second world war. The more time moves on, the more people who lived during that time die out. So easily spoken in order to commemorate it, we need a lot of thinking. Always more and more as time makes the event lie further in our past.

At one point we as human beings put so much time and energy in commemoration that it'll affect our daily lives. We'll start to see patterns in our present that are similar to what we commemorate.

This thrives the human species into the repetition of the event in a similar violent way.

The only way for history not to repeat itself is by brainwashing and resetting every human being on the planet. Which is impossible.

Something I noticed while writing down my quote here is that in a double meaning it also stands as thruth. Since in the thoughts of your commemoration you go through everything once more. You see the video repeat in your mind.

This confirms to me that both in the exterior world, as in the inner spiritual mind:

"All of history repeats itself as long as it is being commemorated".

I have the gift to see patterns in nature. While my grandfather was talking about WOII today it finally came to me how things seek to re-occur. My quote does not apply just to war events. For example I'm also well in business since I commemorate my idols. And this we all know:

Quote: "That a person can die out, but the idea he spread will continue to live on forever through all its surroundings ;-)."

Which nicely applies to this forum. Great!

Some additions:

In order to live, death has to exist (every beginning also needs an ending)

And keep in mind everything you do througout your whole life are just acts to prevent you from dying:

You make money because this is the means to your 4 items to establish well being:

1. housing
2. food and drinks
3. sleep
4. sex

(maslow's pyramid)

But what some people don't understand well is that even not working (going on a vacation), is an act you go through to keep you from dying :-). Since you go on a vacation to reduce your stress levels, which keeps you from having a heart attack.

Or you go seek adventure (to prevent getting bored and die from depression)

"Everything you do in life, from breathing, to your biggest events (giving birth), is to prevent yourself from dying"

"If we could not die then I wouldn't bother to breath, I would not exist"

People shouldn't be so afraid of death, they'll better learn to understand it :-)

If we affirm one single moment, we thus affirm not only ourselves but all existence. For nothing is self-sufficient, neither in us ourselves nor in things; and if our soul has trembled with happiness and sounded like a harp string just once, all eternity was needed to produce this one event—and in this single moment of affirmation all eternity was called good, redeemed, justified, and affirmed.
----Friedrich Nietzsche

"In the end, you know very well that it does not matter whether you, of all people, are proved right, and furthermore, that no philosopher so far has ever been proved right. You also know that every little question-mark you put after your special slogans and favorite doctrines (and occasionally after yourselves) might contain more truth than all the solemn gestures and trump cards laid before accusers and courts of law! So step aside instead! Run away and hide! And be sure to have your masks and your finesse so people will mistake you for something else, or be a bit scared of you!" - Nietzsche
