Forward to the Past

“Forward to the Past” looks at the existence of us, us humans, many years ago in ancient times we used to share common knowledge, higher powers, we believed, progressed as a unit and found synchronicity. What happened to us? As we travel forward many of us lost belief, confused, individuals search for their place in this world. We used to see things in the reality around us now we see the reality of others and our own is in the shadow of flashing lights. What happened?
