There something about sitting on a 1.4 billion year rock that initiates the thought process. These rocks are probably older than anything you will ever encounter in this world. Its almost impossible to imagine 1.4 billion years. Our life span is like a drop of water in the ocean, or a grain of sand in the desert. It really puts our importance in perspective. But we are part of the whole scheme, our body contains the same minerals that emerged from the earth billions of years ago, the same water that fills the oceans. We think we're the most intelligent form on earth, but some plants have figured out how to live thousands of years. There are trees in California that were here when David conquered Goliath, maybe they have learned something we are still trying to learn. This cluster of granite rocks was found at the top of Knob Lick in St Francis County Missouri.
