Since the advent of man there has been a struggle between his nature, which is selfish, and his nurture, which inspires to be selfless. Until recently it was possible to avoid the struggle because there was room for both. Rapidly the time approaches when the selfless man finds that time and space has run out and his survival depends not on avoidance but resolve. Is it possible for the selfless to stand his ground? Is it possible that selfless will find enough resolve to resist selfishness? Is it possible that selflessness will realize that selfishness is truly a coward? Is it possible that at the last stand selfless will not acquiesce its rightful place in man's nature and thus transform man to God. Unfortunately only time will tell.
