For a multitude of reasons, we often miss the big things. By the time we realize how big they are, they have passed. We frequently miss them because they come dressed in common garb. Their arrival is not heralded by a brass band, and no one has arranged a 21-gun salute. There are no news crews covering the event, and many of the responsible parties are nowhere to be seen. Those who are there are so busy doing what they do that they too attract no individual attention. They make it look easy; like it happens every day.

It goes by a number of names, where it started and how it got here depends on who is answering those questions. We are frankly years away from having credible answers to any of these questions. Notwithstanding, one fact is known, and nothing that we’ll ever learn will change that—it got here!
