The Ultimate Relic

Relik.net is a place where people are able to come together to share ideas about the past, present and future. I wanted to create an environment for the historian,the futurist, the survivalist, and the conspiracy buff. This website will please those with both spiritual optimism and realistic pessimism.

I feel as though the word relic embodies what this website could become. A quick google search of the word shows the following;

rel·ic

[ˈrelik]

NOUN
  1. an object surviving from an earlier time, especially one of historical or sentimental interest.
    : artifact · historical object · ancient object · antiquity · antique
    • a part of a deceased holy person’s body or belongings kept as an object of reverence.
      :remains · corpse · bones · cadaver
    • an object, custom, or belief that has survived from an earlier time but is now outmoded:
      “individualized computer programming and time-sharing would become expensive relics”
    • (relics)
      all that is left of something:
      “relics of a lost civilization”

    I believe that the answers to the world’s biggest questions will be found in the relics of the ancient world. Regardless of where one looks for the answers, if we want to accurately predict where the human race is going, we must fully understand our past. Answering the question “where do we come from” will be uncovering what the human being is at its core. A realm of discovery which often borders on spirituality. I believe that there are great relics to uncover. Possibly the greatest one of all is our humanity itself.  To be humane is our true nature and a lost relic.
